Voices of Experience: Articles & Essays by Real Travelers

The thought of traveling independently, exciting though it may be, might also be something that seems daunting, overwhelming, or downright frightening. Heck, even traveling with someone else can seem a little scary if you don’t think you’re an experienced traveler! There are so many things to think about before you leave home – visas, flights, ground transportation, vaccines, travel gear – that it’s understandable if you’re swimming in too much information. At times like these, it can really help to sit back with a cup of something soothing and read a few stories written by real travelers just like you who have done it all already.

In this section, you’ll find travel tips and travel tales submitted to BootsnAll by real travelers who’ve been there and done that, and not only lived to tell their story but actually enjoy doing so. They’re sharing their hard-earned information with you so that you can learn from their mistakes, or follow directly in their footsteps.

Because when you get right down to it, it’s important to remember that even the most experienced traveler was once a beginner – so there’s no shame in wanting a little reassurance from those who’ve gone before you.

So enjoy these articles – whether you’re preparing for your trip or daydreaming about travel when you’re stuck at home, they’re full of great stories and information.
