It is impossible to give you every tip for traveling so I am focusing on the most necessary, urgent and what will give you a better trip.

Everything from how to hitch hike in Mexico to picking a restaurant and the best travel shoes.

There are many more tips to come and yours are welcomed too.
Under “How To Travel” scroll down to contact and tell your storie or list of tips.

All will be published if appropriate and GP. I am not the only editor.
My readers will let me know what they like or don’t.
