There's no denying it. I love travel! The planning, the preparations, the anticipation, (hopefully) the journey there, the places, people, sights, sounds, tastes and smells and finally your own comfortable bed at the end of it all. Travel is all these things and more. Yes, bad things can happen, but hopefully with the proper preparations and precautions, the chances of a travel disaster can be minimised.
These are some tips based upon my years of travel through Eastern Australia, Asia and Europe. Some may apply to you, others may not. Different people have different interests, which is a good thing, because it makes the world a much more interesting place.
