When traveling one needs to bear a few things in mind…
We flew out of OR Tambo international airport
We decided to check into the Bidvest lounge
But you can decide where you want to go. The airport pubs and restaurants are just as good, if not better.
International airports are safety conscious so be aware of what you are wearing – I was nearly strip-searched because my shoes had a metal inlay.
Speaking of airports, not only are they a great place to get a tasy snack and a cup of coffee
But coffee shops are also a great source of free wifi. Take as much advantage as you can.
4. Don’t underestimate the weather
We went to Germany. It was astoundingly cold, especially coming from South African summer.
5. Dress Appropriately
So again, we were facing a European winter. So warm clothing was an essential.
It was so cold even the Lego Giraffe needed some extra warmth.
6. Figure out your budget
Two things on this topic…
A. Figure out how much money you can afford to exchange.
B. Don’t convert back. It hurts. So take your money and enjoy it.
7. Take in the sights
We were in Berlin
As a hint of advice, take in as much as you can. A lot of the sights are free of charge. So take in as much of the sights and shopping as you can.
