Many people adore traveling and enjoying the new experiences it brings.2

But even the most adventurous traveler can find themselves in a bit of a rut.2

So here are some resolutions to help you shake up your travel game in 2017 …

1. Keep It Light

Traveling light makes a lot of sense.

Chances are you'll pick up more things on your travels, so you don't need to cram your luggage full to bursting.

Besides, your back, shoulders and arms will thank you if your bags are lighter!

Pick out versatile clothes that are easy to wash, and instead of packing lots of books, take a Kindle or tablet.

2. Beat the Excuses

There's always a reason not to travel, such as work commitments, your relationship, money … However, if you really want to you can overcome these 'obstacles'.

It's often said that you never regret what you do, just what you don't do, so find a way to make your travel dreams a reality.

3. Enjoy the Experience

You might be tempted to start a travel blog, since everyone else seems to be (and apparently making money from it).

Or you're constantly taking photos to share with friends and remind you of your trip.

However, this can mean you don't really enjoy the experience of travelling.

Learn to be in the moment, instead of feeling the pressure to document every moment of your trip.

4. Travel Ethically

There's no getting away from the fact that travel is bad for the environment.

But you can still minimize your impact by using trains or buses wherever possible, rather than flying or driving.

Also use ethical tour operators, avoid disturbing wildlife or harming the environment, and support local communities with careful choice of how you spend your money.2

5. Make an Effort to Meet Local People

Many people will be delighted to meet visitors to their area, and teach them something of local culture.

Language doesn't need to be a problem;

it's amazing how far you can get with a few words and lots of smiles!

And always be respectful of the fact that you are a guest in someone else's country.2
