Usually I am pretty optimistic about every situation and try to see the positive in everything. But I also believe that it is important to realize what you don’t like in order to appreciate other things more. Don’t get me wrong I love to travel, but there are some aspects that can bother me sometimes. Here are my top three things that I hate about traveling:
1. Waiting Time
I am person who likes to get things done quickly and I do not like to waste time. Yes, you could say that I’m impatient. What I dislike the most is the waiting time before boarding a plane. You have to wait, and wait and well, wait. There is not much to do than sitting around and to kill time until you hear the salvation: “Please board the plane.” And so the excitement starts again!
Quick Tip: If you travel solo, try to think ahead and bring a magazine or book along with you.
2. Public Toilets
This may sound weird, but I think that most of you (especially girls) will agree with me that finding a ‘clean’ public bath room is not the easiest task while traveling. Whether it is the lack of a toilet or the unpleasant state of an existing one – not fun at all. Countries with different standards than yours and long air plane rides can be pretty problematic as well, but I guess it’s just part of the game.
3. Bad Weather
You’ve experienced it: you have an exciting day ahead of you full with plans of sightseeing. You are on your way to your next sightseeing destination and feel the first drop of rain coming down. Soon it starts pouring rain and needless to say you have not brought an umbrella with you (Hello London!). Nothing can ruin a day of traveling as much than being drenched with rain.
Quick Tip: Always try to check the weather beforehand to avoid surprises and have a back-up plan!
