HAVE POSITIVE & GOOD VIBES
Being positive and having good vibes around you is obviously going to make your holiday a whole heap better. I mean your going on a holiday of coarse you want to feel happy all the time! Although I definitely understand life happens and when life happens those positive vibes can suddenly turn in to negative vibes. Factors include: jetlag, being home sick, adjusting to other destinations and many more. These things we can’t control but what you can do is find ways to handle the situation and make a light of the situation.
Just to clarify I am NOT an accountant & besides I don’t think any of you would trust me being your accountant anyway, I mean I cant even do basic maths without a calculator… that says enough right?
So your finance obviously plays a huge part in your holiday. My recommendation to all of you is to make sure you have enough money saved for your holiday, I would hate for you to go to on a holiday cant experience the full package of your holiday because your restricted with your finances. You might ask, how much is “enough” money, well ask yourself these questions:
- How expensive is the destination your going to? What’s the currency like ?
- Have you already decided what activities you are wanting to do? (If you have, well you can pay for this before hand & you won’t be needing as much spending money if your jam packed with activities)
- Does your hotels, flights including food? This will cut down your spending money as it has already been provided for you.
- Google is your best friend – this can give you a rough estimate how much you need, how much others spend etc.
Also don’t go splurging all of your money on the first couple of days, I know you might have that mindset, “I am on holiday who cares”, this is partially true but I believe there is a limit and you have to think of the bigger picture. Think to yourself “Should I buy those $1000 shoes or should I save it in case something else pops up”? My mother always tells me, make sure to save for a rainy day…
So you’re at your holiday destination & you think to yourself, how do I get to the destination? How much is 10 Australian dollars in US dollars? What the heck are they talking about in their language ? Well to cover all these topics and make it easier for you, download a few apps to guide you along the way and make this holiday destination stress free as possible. Download a currency app, a translator app & a GPS (or use your phone). DONT FORGET TO CONNECT TO WIFI OR BUY INTERNET !!!! Who wants to be stuck with thousands of internet bills back home, what a nightmare.
BREATH IN THE CULTURE, BE DARING & MAKE THE MOST OF IT.
A holiday is to relax, get away for a while and also make unforgettable memories. If you’re going on a holiday destination that you have never been too before ensure you make the most of every second. Step out of your comfort zone. Maybe you have never been skydiving? Well try skydiving. Maybe you have never climbed a mountain? Well climb that mountain. There are so many things I can think of on the top of my head. If you want to make memories that will be forever stuck in your mind, do things that will challenge yourself. Even the smallest step will make a huge difference ! Go on everyone step up to the plate and make those memories count 🙂
