Before you travel, you should read about where you are going. I always prepare for trips by reading about the culture, history, and policies of the places I visit. I also try to visit the government tourist offices and the institutes. Remember, the world is a busy place and mistakes happen, try to stay calm and just enjoy your trip. The lessons can be used by anyone who travels in order to make the trip more enjoyable.
