Learn something local

If you plan to stay at a place for a relatively long time, then enroll for the local language or cooking courses to get an immersive cultural feel of the place.

Keep the essentials

Pack the essentials and keep them on hand at all times. For example, if you are travelling to the UK, carry an umbrella all the time.

Save money on phone

Invest in a good unlocked phone so that you can use the local SIM card to save a lot of money. Alternately, use Skype and other voice conferencing applications to connect with your loved ones during your travels.

Try organised tours

Take organised tours once in a while to take a break from planning. These tours also give you a chance to meet other interesting people.

Talk to the locals

Open up, and talk to the locals to get the real pulse of the place.
