International Travel

International travel is considered to be everywhere else that is not in the United States (or outside of the country you live in). The rest of the world is open as ideas and once again, a great place to look is 1,000 Places To See Before You Die. There are the 7 wonders of the world just for starters.
Whenever traveling internationally, make sure that you have checked all rules and regulations for being in that country. The requirements and laws change continually and you need to be sure to know the latest information. All international travel at least requires a passport and sometimes requires a visa. You should always have your passport and driver’s license or other valid ID with you at all times, you never know if you might need to show it for some reason. Also, making two copies of your ID’s and leaving one at home with a family member or friend and keeping the other one at your hotel or on the cruise ship (secured) is a good idea in case your passport gets lost or stolen. The copies will not be sufficient forms of ID, but may make the process of getting another passport quicker and easier. Also leaving a copy of your itinerary, hotel and flight numbers with a family member or friend back home is a good idea.
Keep up with current events and know what is going on in the country you are traveling to. While visiting other places, always be aware of your surroundings and be respectful of traditions and practices that may be different than your own. Generally speaking, be a well informed traveler and ‘Know before you go’.Next: Traveling Tips and Flying In General
