Here are 10 things to do before you travel.

1. Travel Research


Whichever place you go to. do not forget to research about that place. Look online or check it out in books, you will find some information about the place. Learn a little more about every place you go to so that you can soak in their culture and tradition easily. Research is very important as you can be mentally prepared about the terrain, the lifestyle and get more acquainted with the place.

2. Offline maps

Most remote places, especially in India do not have a network. If you choose the off beaten path, most of the towns and villages do not have internet or basic network to call. Hence, download offline maps and use it whenever you feel you are lost.
