THE 16 BIGGEST TRAVEL MISTAKES YOU CAN MAKE

THE 16 BIGGEST TRAVEL MISTAKES YOU CAN MAKE

1. Not bringing an empty water bottle

This is especially true if you’re traveling within the US. Now-a-days, most US airports have water filling stations after you get through security. Not only does it save money, but it helps the earth a little, too!

I always bring my handy dandy Brita water bottle with me around Europe, as well. You should definitely check if where you’re going has safe drinking water, but a many places throughout Europe do! If they don’t, your hotel or hostel’s lobby might have a big water cooler for you to fill your bottle at.

2. Putting fashion over comfort

I’m continually shocked, and honestly amazed, at the amount of women that are just totally fine wearing heels out for a day of traveling. It can’t make their travels fun! To this I say get yourself some good shoes, I promise you won’t regret it.

For summer, I generally like to wear my Birkenstocks. They are a bit pricier (I spent about $140 on mine), but they are so worth it. I walk miles a day when traveling, and my feet barely ache at the end. Birkenstocks just have such great arch support!

For winter, I got myself a pair of Steve Madden leather booties. They were around $80, and I’ve had them for about two and a half years now with no complaints. Mine even have a tiny bit of a lifted heel, and I can still walk all day in them. They’re really high quality shoes that’ll last you a really long time!
