Traveling Mindset: Our advice is to save a little extra room for a positive attitude. Being lighthearted and going with the flow when encountering the unexpected will keep little problems from ruining your travel experience.
Clothing Advice: KaliKosmos Travel recommends travelers dress in layers because it is the easiest way to stay comfortable no matter what the conditions may be. Checking both the average weather statistics for your destination(s) as well as the actual weather forecast closer to your time of travel will help give you an idea of how thick the layers should be. It is a good idea to have comfortable closed-toe walking shoes, a small travel umbrella, a hat, sunscreen/bug spray, and a jacket/sweater. Generally, we recommend dressing “Smart Casual” but please determine what you bring by the itinerary of your trip. Depending on your itinerary, you may also want to pack a couple of nicer outfits (and blazers for gentlemen).
Important Travel Items: Carry your valuables and official travel documents with you at all times. This includes your currency, documentation, identification, glasses, cameras, and any medication that you may need. Please make and keep an extra copy of the first page of your passport(s) separate from your official travel documents. Also, please be sure to bring more than enough medicine than you anticipate needing and keep your medication in the original prescription-label bottle.
