How to deal with life on the road? Finding a place to sleep and eat, shopping and bargaining overseas and dealing with local customs and culture are just part and parcel of traveling.
One of the pleasures of traveling in foreign countries is enjoying the variety of different foods that a culture may offer. But what many travelers don't realize is that, like water, certain foods can also make you very sick. Remember the old addage: "If you can't boil it, peel it or cook it, forget it!".
"Goin' places that I've never been
Seein' things that I may never see again,
And I can't wait to get on the road again."
-- Willie Nelson
Should you take a camera? and if you do - what type? then how do you take a good picture! A little preparation can help ensure great photographs. Sometimes great photographs just 'happen', but it's rare. Even with good equipment and a great subject, great pictures come from the skill of the photographer. Taking a camera (or not) is a personal choice. There are many legitimate reasons to take pictures. Take pictures, sure, but know when to draw the line and just let the experiences happen.
Remember! Enjoy Yourself!
Let yourself enjoy the wonder of the world, laugh, be happy and enjoy life! Don't take everything too seriously; you are supposed to be having a good time after all.
