Make a few small changes to the way you travel, and you’ll be opening a whole new world. Here’s how you transform your traveling experiences.

When it comes to moving from one place to the next, don’t automatically think that flying is the best way to get there. It’ll most often be the fastest way, but why prioritize speed? When you’re locked in an airplane, well above the ground, you do not see anything. Traveling by land is much more rewarding. Train travel is a joy, and the freedom of having a car is unparalleled. For the truly adventurous, there can be no greater experience than sticking out a thumb and waiting for a kindly driver to take you further on down the road.
You could book yourself into a centrally located hotel and have a great time, but could it better? Staying in your own private accommodation allows you to experience a destination more like a local rather just a tourist. Book serviced accommodation with LSA, and you’ll be able to prepare your own meals, relax comfortable, and feel like you’re at home away from home. Once you’ve seen the joys of having your own place, you won’t go back to staying in hotels for your trips away!

Every major city has its tourist hotspots. This is where all the big, generic, overpriced chain restaurants go. It is never where the locals go to eat. If you’re in a non-English speaking country and all the restaurant signs you see are in English, you should take a walk for 10 minutes in any direction. You’ll find restaurants that don’t solely cater to tourists. The food will be better, the prices more reasonable, and the atmosphere more authentic. There’s no excuse to eat in a tourist restaurant, especially if you’re in a city that is renowned for its food!

You could take a look at tourist guides for any destination, read the top 10 things to do, and then tick them all off your list. But let’s say four of them are art museums, and you don’t like art? Visiting those places would be a waste of time for. Instead, take a look at everything that’s available and find things that genuinely interest you. It’s important to broaden your horizons when you travel, but it makes no sense to do things that you won’t enjoy.

Ultimately, when it comes to traveling, you have to think about what would be the best trip for you, not anybody else. Think about all the decisions, and you’ll be on the right track to carving out an experience that’s all your own!
