I just read this book. Pretty shitty, a lot of them are obvious or so stupid that no one will do them. I swear at least four times they mention to bring a power strip as a conversation starter. I compiled a list of a few good ones from the book.
Before going to a new town and you don’t know what to do call the local hotel you’re staying there next week and asking question you want.
If you're planning on traveling with locals or backpacking alone, bring a few small souvenirs from home to give out as thanks. They also make great conversation starters.
Never get your dirty and clean clothes mixed up again; simply turn your dirty clothes inside out after wearing them.
No laundry where you're staying? Pack some travel laundry detergent, like Tide Travel Sink Packets. They're like turning your sink into a washing machine.
Clean out an old stick of deodorant and stuff it with some extra cash and/or a backup credit card.
Want to remember your trip? Make a new playlist for each place you visit. Now whenever you want to relive your vacation just listen to that soundtrack.
/trv/, what other random travel tips would you recommend?
