20 Things to Consider When Traveling

*Respect the local traditions and manners. Remember that you are the visitor in their country.
*Be grateful and polite. Even one person can really make a difference!
*Get lost. When you arrive in a new place walk or rent a bicycle and explore. You’ll see so much more than just sitting in the backseat of a taxi.
*Avoid mass-tourism places. The money is already there. Instead support local entrepreneurs somewhere quiet and see the real side of the country.
*Try local foods. Seriously. Cow’s brain might sound a bit harsh first, but it's actually good.

*Learn some basics about the history, culture, language, who's running the country etc. You don't want to be that stupid tourist who doesn't know anything about the country you're visiting...
* And then again, know your own country. I got very often in a situation where I have to tell where's Finland and how is it there. It's a bit weird if you can't answer simple questions about your own country.
*Don't litter! Probably the most stupid thing you can do.
*Travel by land if possible. You’ll see more and it’s more ecological.
*Be careful, but don't stress too much.
*Don't plan too much.
*Understand different religions.

*It doesn’t mean that if a place is on a Lonely Planet it’s good. Use guidebooks for help but don’t trust ’em blindly.
*Don’t pack too much stuff. You don't want to bring your whole boring life with you...
*People are generally good and there’s always people who’ll help you.
*Don’t be afraid.
*Never underestimate people. I had a 45 minutes chat with Malaysian taxidriver about the global recession, what's Asia's part in it and why Sweden handle it so well...
*Be social. You’ll end up having tons of new friends.
*If you want to get wasted, why not doing it in a good and trustworthy company?
*And seriously, what's the rush? Usually you find the best places and best things when you settle down and don’t just run from one place to another.
