    Tips

    If you’re an economical traveller then keep a daily budget (and stick to it!). Tallying how much you’ve saved and spent each day will make it easier to justify those more expensive experiences such as tours, safaris and multiday hikes. Plus you’ll feel good when your budget is in the green, and you won’t come unstuck along the way.
    Consider spending longer than planned in each place you travel. By spending a month in each country and at least three days in each location, you’ll quickly develop a better understanding of the culture around you and the pace of life there. Even if there aren’t a lot of ‘traditional’ experiences around, sometimes just mingling and being there is enough.
    Protect your eyes and your skin from the sun. You might feel like wearing as little as possible in hot countries, but it’s actually better to cover up with light trousers and a light shirt. Not only will this be more culturally sensitive to a lot of the world, but it will protect you from the sun, from insects, and keep you cooler too. Believe it or not, a shirt is lighter, cooler and more versatile than a t-shirt.
