New Year is a new opportunity to start fresh and new. Although we can mostly change bad habits at any time of the year, it is a tradition that we mostly list down our New Year’s resolutions at the start of the year.
Here are some of our travel resolutions you might like to think about:
Take fewer photos. It is alright to take photos and selfies if you want. But it is always good to do everything in moderation. You should also be considerate, especially when taking photos of popular places and other people also want to take pictures of the place.
In most cases, it is best to just be in the moment and enjoy and remember the details of your trip without your phone getting in the way.
Don’t use your phone when dining. This is especially true when you are dining with others. Avoid taking photos of your food because your companion may just want to eat and concentrate talking to you and not on your phone.
Paying attention to those you dine with shows you respect the dining table, the food you are eating and your companions too. Join in the conversation and connect with the actual people you are dining with which is better than tapping on your phone searching for people to connect.
Travel sustainability. Respect the place you are travelling in by not littering. If possible, bring your own reusable utensils and refillable water bottle. As we want to take care of our environment, small steps to lowering our carbon footprint on places we visit is a big help to our planet.
