So you had a glimpse of a postcard image of your favourite destination and wondered why you are still sitting on your couch sipping the same old tea or maybe you always dreamed of visiting a specific site and now you are all set to travel there but suddenly some uncertainties comes across, these doubt whom we several times refer as the travel myths.
Well honestly, don’t let the myths dim your dreams as its pointless and completely superstitious to believe them, but anyways on a safer side, have a look at the half-truths we catered for you, the list of 8 travel myths that shouldn’t be believed and which you might avoid onwards after laughing at them now.
Traveling alone is dangerous
Not traveling, but having thoughts like that may be cautious for you, traveling alone is probably the best time to explore the limits and boundaries within yourself in the meantime it gives a boost of confidence in you, I mean after having the guts to travel to a new city all by your own, you are now prepared to roam anywhere alone or maybe asking a random French guy on the road to sip a cup of coffee with you.
Traveling is luxurious but expensive
So you are keeping those bucks save for your grand grandest children or planning to take them with you to the world hereafter? Jokes apart, have you ever heard of the word budget travel? Oh well if not then this myth is probably correct for you, be smart and choose the affordable flights and tour packages, save money at least 6 months before your travel plan and plan wisely everything, that can save you many bucks for sure.
Online booking is way too risky
There’s also a risk that you may fall off your chair right now reading this blog, but seriously there’s a slight ratio of risk in almost everything you do so don’t hassle about the online booking system being unsafe or risky, they are surely for your convenience and safety. You can book your tickets online via any cheap flight providers and save a lot of time plus your belief in the fact that online booking is hazardous will be changed into a positive perspective.
Everything costs double the usual while traveling
Well this completely depends on you, if you wish to spend your money like a rich brat then suit yourself but in my personal opinion traveling itself is a very luxurious thing, there is no need of spending money like you’ve here forever, enjoy the moments as they come your way, surely that can be done without lightening your pocket.
This place is strictly 18+ – family vacation cannot be planned
Honestly places like Las Vegas or Los Angeles are for any human being alive, it makes it much more fun to be there with your wife and kids, enjoying the exotic sights and scenic views, after all who is asking you to be a stripper or a gambler at the casinos?
Traveling is stressful
Anything that is fun to do embraces a bit of stress, and traveling is the most amazing kind of stress anyone would love to have, at least I am on this list, after having all the stress and strain you will cherish and laugh about the moments you thought were completely pointless but believe me that are the pure add on to your trip. So this stressed myth is one of those travel myths that shouldn’t be believed for sure.
You easily get drunk on a plane
I guess it entirely depends on the amount of booze you take rather you blame the poor flight for it as it has also been tried out by several people and results are the same that plane has nothing to do with it, it’s the intake of alcohol that matters.
I will get sick if I drink their water or eat their food
It requires a lot of common sense to absorb the fact that they are also human beings living in those areas where you are planning to go, so all the food may not be the reason to cause you harm. Some street food and open tap water is obviously hazardous but it can be affective even in your native city too so it’s useless to believe that a particular country is causing your harm via their food and drinks. Be cautious yourself, avoid the things that are a bit allergic to you or if you are not habitual of them.
