The year is ending and you might want to travel around the world to have fun in the holidays.  Traveling is amazing but there are two things that we frequently forget about: what to do when waiting long times at the airport and the transportation we will use once we arrive to our destination.  These are two strange things to consider, but definitely important. 


We are usually so excited about our trip, that we never remember that we have to be like thousands of hours before the flight takes off at the airport, or worst, we forget that there is a scale somewhere for like 3 or 4 hours.  And we never consider what to do in that time, so instead of being 3 hours of waiting they become like an eternity.  That’s why we need to plan our trip carefully, to be prepared in case of extreme boredom.  If you have no idea what to do, just check the Vagabondish “5 Tips for not going insane while stranded in an airport” to get an idea of the option you have to kill some time.


Now, you enjoyed your time at the airport and you arrived to your destination; how are you going to move around? There are usually many options: rent a car, use subway, the bus, a taxi or maybe the train.  These are all nice ways to travel around the town, but you have to be careful because there are some bad people there that will try to take advantage of you when they see you are a tourist.  So, take a moment to read this Vagabondish note that explains the 5 most common transport scams, so you can be careful next time you go on a trip.
