Because a successful trip is a well prepared trip, find below our recommendations: Food Gradually get used to your new diet.
If the water is not drinkable anywhere in the country, drink only bottled water open in front of you, or purified with pellets provided for this purpose. Do not eat unpeeled vegetables and fruits (which may have been washed with unpurified water), avoid ice and avoid dairy products. Choose rice and well-cooked foods.
To change interest-free currencies before leaving, consider going to the very touristy places in your area, where foreign tourists come to change their currencies. To do the opposite operation (sell dollars instead of buying them), foreign exchange shops generally offer interesting conditions.
Ask for small bills to have currency on the spot (the sellers never have the money, you know it well ...), and refuse the too used tickets which could be refused on the spot (in some countries, a hole pin is sufficient to consider the used ticket). In Paris, the most favorable places are around the Opera, on the Champs Elysees (at the counters that are in the merchant galleries) and around the Louvre (rue de Rivoli). If you pay by credit card, pay attention to sometimes high exchange commissions. Also be vigilant in some countries (Russia, USA in particular), because credit card tickets provide a line for service ("tip"). If you do not fill it, even with a zero, the server can do it for you. Never leave your card out of sight to avoid double passes on "iron". The travelers are a security, since they are refunded to you in case of loss or theft. However, they are often subject to higher purchase fees and are not accepted everywhere. To carry your money, you can use a belt with closed pockets. Not necessarily elegant, but effective. Lastly, never leave your money ostensibly. Keep your big bills aside from your little change, and never forget that one of your bills is sometimes a lot for the local population.
First of all remember to identify your baggage with the outbound, the address of your hotel on arrival or the coordinates of our partner team to and from your address. Thus searches in case of late luggage will be facilitated for the teams of the airport. In the plane, carry what is important in hand luggage: passport, camera, tablet, pc ... but also some underwear, a spare T-shirt and a toothbrush with toothpaste. If your luggage was delayed on arrival, it will allow you to start your stay without being too disarmed. If you can not find your baggage on arrival, make a declaration of loss (all airports have a specialized service for baggage loss). Also contact the airline's staff to help you cope with the problem (in general, but this is not a requirement, they take care of your clothes and toiletries purchases to wait until what you have recovered your good).
Towards the West (from Europe to the Americas ...), you will be tired at the end of the afternoon and in good shape very early in the morning. The first day, you should arrive in the afternoon, which will make you live a day longer than usual. Do not go to bed until the evening, try to stay active, get out so that your body can adjust to the new hours of "brightness". To the East (From Europe to Asia ...), you will certainly arrive in the morning, after a night on the plane. This day will be tiring, but try not to sleep until the evening, to settle you as soon as possible on the new schedules, there also getting out to the maximum in the natural light. It may be prudent to have a calmer first day to recover from the trip without taking a nap. If you think you can not resist, take a nap of 2 hours when you arrive, and get up!
