While going on vacation or taking a weekend trip is as thrilling as it sounds. having your own time to explore places, meet new people, leisure time, spending the day the way you want, eating and reading a rom-com and catching up on sleep; a full dose and supply of happiness. Travelling is love and full but there are certain things about travelling which puts you off, the things that we hate about travelling… Things Hate Traveling.
Lack Of Loo
In India, finding a loo itself is a task lucky enough to find one, but the hygiene level is disgusting. I often try limiting my water intake to insure I do not have to look around for a loo. While abroad however, it is the lack of water jets that annoying, so to be safe during travel always pack three things loo roll, a seat sanitizer, wet wipes and a hand sanitizer or soap.
The jam-packed buses carrying tourist is another hateful site. In India the scene is particularly bad as the local (inter-state ones) pay a fraction of a cost (to a foreign national) to enter the monument. I have seen many such tourists eat their own picnic food and spoil parks by littering around the public places etc.
The touts can be annoying and often overcharge. On several occasion you get over charged by touts, Often touts abroad will take you to weird museums and try to make you buy things you do not need, all for their commission.
This is the worst part of traveling. Jet lag makes you waste valuable vacation time being befuddled and feel lazy! The best way is to eat light during travel, exercise regularly, and start sleeping early/late a week before you vacation. This helps you body adjust quicker.
This one can be a real bummer. Visa denial is the worst part or the long processing time can make you distraught! Also be careful about the Visa on arrival part, insure your passport has about a year before expiry.
Every time you back from a trip, you leave a part of you there. Getting back to the drudgery of home-office-home plus unpacking and settling back, kick in the holiday blues. But there is always the next trip to look forward to.
