I'm singin' in the rain
Just singin' in the rain
What a glorious feeling
I'm happy again.…
Yes it's water falling from the sky aka rain in most of Europe now but let's sing instead of complaining...
5 tips to planning your perfect holiday
A) Use the help of aggregator sites such as skyscanner for airlines and Trivago for hotels but always make your purchases from the airline / hotel itself because sometimes going through a 3rd party site causes problems like bookings being lost
B) Get a translator app if you're going to a foreign country. The kind that helps you type in your chosen language and is translated in written foreign language or spoken foreign language for locals in that country to understand and help you. This is because not every country speak English as a native language esp Korea. So you're gonna have to get creative
C) Get cost savings by using sites like Klook which is famous for asian countries deals and discounts. I got my Korea Rail pass, portable wifi and sim card as well as theme park tickets to Lotte World on Klook and I saved quite a bit vs buying it on the spot
D) Use tools like google streetview to help you gauge the neighbourhood and surrounding area of a particular place you're interested in. This will help you have an idea if you like the neighbourhood before you decide to book it / is it safe for a solo traveller / too many slopes for older travellers or people with bad knees.
E) Research, Research and Research
Its the only full proof method to a well planned trip without any unplanned surprises. This also helps you maximise your number of days at that particular location and making sure you visit everything that tickles your fancy without any unforeseen circumstances
I love planning full-proof trips and I spend months planning them. If you would like any advise or help planning your trips for you, happy to do so.
What are you afraid to do but know you should?
Everyone has fears. Some have more than others.
I have always had many fears in my life: fear of failure, embarrasing myself, etc...
One mindset that has really helped me to face fears is this:
“Feel the fear and do it anyway!”
Because, what we fear doing most, is usually what we most need to do!
I was terrified of taking a sales job at 19 years old, but I knew that was something that would be most beneficial for me in that moment to grow as a person.
I remember my first day at the job. I got only 2-3 hours of sleep the night before because I was so anxious and excited at the same time. And then making that first sales approach - I was afraid, but I still did it and it actually went pretty well. And as they say, the more you face your fears, the easier it gets.
So next time you feel fear. Remember: “Feel the fear and do it anyway!”
