Pro Travel Tip #1

Welcome to our new Pro Travel Tip series, a daily feature of the best travel tips from explorers around the globe. Monday through Friday will feature a new insight on topics ranging from culture to money to driving, all short and to the point, providing a lesson (sometimes hard learned) from a fellow traveler. We are fortunate at Expedition Portal to have a team of well-traveled adventurers, their combined experience spanning seven continents and over 140 countries. We are also grateful to Sinuhe Xavier, Chief Creative Officer for Overland International for the suggestion to start this series, which we plan to continue into the foreseeable future.  If you have a Pro Travel Tip to share, send an email to editor (at) expeditionportal.com. We will pick contributors at random for free gifts from Overland Journal and other partners.
