TRAVEL: 30 Things I've Learnt Through Travelling

I travelled Australia for a year and New Zealand for 6 weeks and heres what I learnt whilst travelling:

1. Travelling with a group is fun but travelling independently is so much more rewarding.
2. I am capable of more than I give myself credit for.
3. Goon is the devil.
4. Any meal over $15 is expensive.
5. How to budget my money - do I really need that top when I already have 5 very similar?
6. Watching a sunrise/sunset never gets old.
7. A cockroach will not kill you and they themselves are easily killed by a magazine or a flip flop.
8. That I can sleep through just about anything.
9. But ear plugs will always come in handy, there is always that one person who snores.
10. Sometimes taking a photograph will not do the view justice so take a mental snapshot instead.

11. Always put on sun cream before you leave the hostel, the sun is cheeky and will catch you out even if you're just walking down the road.
12. Putting on sun cream will not make you less able to tan, it protects from UV rays.
13. That I'm more of a beach person rather than a city person - never thought I would say that!
14. Defo did not need to bring all these clothes.
15. Don't use your bath towel for the beach, use a sarong or buy a different towel.
16. Sand gets EVERYWHERE!
17. That I haven't seen as many spiders/snakes as I thought I would (have seen barely any)
18. Doing your own laundry sucks, and having to pay for it too.
19. Postcards are the best souvenirs.
20. A song can remind you of that place with those people.

21. Everyone travelling is in the same boat - make conversation with people.
22. That it's actually fun and not tedious to write in my journal.
23. Facebook is the easiest way to contact people back home.
24. Guide books don't know everything, the best advice you can get is from people who have already been there and done it.
25. Free wifi is a godsend.
26. If you're in a country for a long period of time, get a SIM card and a bank account for that country.
27. Roll your clothes in your backpack/suitcase - massive space saver.
28. Saying hello and a smile goes a long way.
29. The world isn't as big as you think - you always end up bumping into someone you know.
30. That I really do need to travel the world.

What have you learnt from travelling?
