Advice For First Time Travelers: 1) Plan your trip so you have an idea on where you want to go and when, but don’t plan it too detailed or tight. Be flexible on your planning because things always happen on the road, and you might want to change your plans on the go.
2)When it comes to documents, have digital and paper copies of everything. This includes your Yellow Fever card, Passport, ID, and other legal documents. It’s also good to have at least two debit cards in case one gets lost or captured by an ATM. That way you won’t get stranded without money.
