We did our mistakes, but we don´t make bucket lists or collect countries
You might need some extra motivation to get started – to gear up and travel the World. But when you first set off, life on the road is lot easier than you think. And likely more fun and interesting, if you did some decent planning before leaving – or might inspiration in our best travel tips.
We are a few experienced journalists and together we have travelled the world in all directions. From north to south, from east to west. We all made some silly mistakes and we know mistakes make you better prepared for next journey. We are not bloggers who just like to travel and collect countries. We travel as part of our job and never met a pro journalist who treasure countries like trophies.
Motivated people can achieve anything they like. Yes, we all know the question how to stay motivated when you have work, family and friends back home. Here are our advice.
Travel Advice from reporters: Secure Female Travel
#1 The first of our best travel tips; Don´t travel if you feel burned out. It´s better to stay at home. Plan your next journey and be ready to explore part of our wonderful world. However, it´s not possible to plan everything.
#2 One of the great motives to travel is the expectation before you go and to create memories while you are away. You want memories that last long after you return home. Get back and you cannot recall any memorable, sounds like waste of time and money.
Travel Packing: As little as possible
Take on a challenge
#3 Some want to beat a record, others just to know and visit a place. Not like the man from England who made an urban sprawl and took all the bus lines in the city of Buenos Aires. Whatever you have in mind or on the checklist, a clear goal and a budget is a good start. We think there are less women travelling with specific checklists.
#4 For me travel means freedom and work and here are more of my best travel tips. Freedom to visit new places, to meet new people. My work is connecting with making travel stories and it brings me to new places. Many things motivate a person to take a trip, just think about what you like to do and explore. As for me I learn a lot from meeting people. Traveling includes the power of bringing new perspective along, review your spirit.
Outpost or Venezia
#5 There are plenty of great reasons people want to travel and how they find motivation to travel. What the motivation is differ from person to person. But I believe it is the inner state of a person, or certain need. Think about it before you start planning. The places I have loved most, like The Faroe Islands, are distant outposts without tourist hordes, even in the high season. On the other hand, I will never go to Venezia, a city with 30 million tourists a year. My only motivation would be the fastest way out of this Italian city.
Read books and magazines
#6 I love to read books about travel and magazines to get new motivation. But I have to admit, the best information and inspiration I get is from online publications. Start reading and you will realise that feeling motivated is a great way to feel. Set small goals and you end up with big and great plans.
Motivation means success
#7 Your last vacation might was the reason you are dreaming about a sandy beach, shopping in narrow streets in Spain or go to New York to tour famous museums. From one travel to another is a kind of motivation. Because motivation is key to your success story, your next travel.
#8 When I grew up, I used to read books and magazines about people traveling to places I never knew about. Only after I start working as journalist and start serious travelling I realise reality behind the quote: “It´s better to see something once than hear about it hundreds of times”
Go – don´t stop
#9 In the end you will have the motivation you need, and start to prepare for your next journey. Remember two old saying: It does not matter how slowly you go as long you do not stop, and The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Read and go
#10 Read stories and see pictures in King Goya travel magazine and get inspiration and information about nearly 100 countries. We don´t count countries, we go there based on dreams and motivation.
Share in the Air
#11 The best things in life were made to be shared. So if you know somebody who’d enjoy our best travel tips and advice, and quality journalism, you are free to share. Thank You!
