There are all sorts of road safety signages everywhere. Warnings calling out “Danger!” or directions “10 More Miles Before You Reach…” or sometimes as simple as a “Beware of dogs in the area”.
A safety sign that says “Danger: Restricted Area. Falling debris” warns people away. And smart travelers heed that advice. They pay attention. They do not laugh it off and dismiss it. They do not walk further into the area, laughing, having the time of their life, thinking they had gotten away with something. So when rocks and debris and other sorts of nasty material does fall, smart travelers are not there. So they do not get hurt from careless accidents. They stay safe.
Plenty of cities around the world. Going around Signapore, for instance, would acquaint you with plenty of safety signages Singapore already has. This means the city values your safety to put those warnings there. And so should you, by heeding those warnings.
2. They pack light.
It is a cliché but it is true: pack light, especially if you have plans to bop from one island to another. Having too many things could slow you down and tire you out. This could mean less time to explore everything around you—and if you tire out too often and too much, you could get sick too.
Being ill on a trip means you get to enjoy that walk to the market or afternoon shopping in the city much less than you want to—all because you are tired and exhausted and while everything around you seems wonderful and different, you do not see that. Because there is only one thing in your mind: sleep and rest.
Another advantage to packing light: when you go home, you have more space so you can shop or bring more than what you had when you came.
3. They teach themselves about the local culture.
They learn how to say thank you in the local language, and find out the basics like what you should and should not do so they do not give offense to anyone. Smart travelers respect people of other cultures.
4. They have fun.
Sure, there are plenty of rules, things to remember. But one thing that smart travelers never forget to do is have fun. Enjoy every moment. If your flight is delayed, no worries. More time to shop around and see the city. Smart travelers know how to adjust and see the fun in every moment.
