• travel rules by Ed Stafford
Everyone, at least once in his life, wanted to go to a great trip - preferably alone. For many of us, unfortunately, it is a fantasy. For Ed Stafford - is work.
The first person that has passed all the Amazon, a British researcher and former captain of the English army, Ed Stafford became popular world-wide series Marooned gear. We decided, based on the interview of the hero, make a list of tips that will be useful to everyone who decided to finally go on a trip.
If you're really assembled in a single trip in the wilderness - to warn all the friends and relatives of every stage of their trip. No need to hope for the local means of communication, because you can be without them at any time. In this case, useful and familiar, worried about your long silence.
Have a backup plan
For every travel need necessarily to make a backup plan. Then you find yourself in the unenviable position of a man who does not understand that he had to do next. Planned excursion can cancel, the museum is closed - and only in the wild such linings, for sure, will be ten.
Learn a few important words
Do not be too hard to learn a few words in the local language or dialect. Meanwhile, simple gratitude expressed for the native language of the current area for sure will please the natives. And then will present you with a gift a glass or two of wine, as is the case in Italy.
adapt to the unexpected
The ability to be flexible is given to very few. Try easier to relate to the case in a long campaign to overlays. Missed the train? Do not worry, another will come. Happened to be in another city? So take the time to really study the it! In the end, life is not so often presents us with an interesting adventure.
Communicate with others
No need to move along their route, if the machine to the intended target. Look back, be interested in the environment and - most importantly - make new acquaintances. Getting to know people who live in a new place, you can feel the spirit of the free territory. Adventure - this is what should lead you on a journey, and not a desire to put a tick next to the map.
