A few more things learned while traveling

Kobo = life changing. I’ve had it for so many years and almost never used it. My new favourite thing. You can pack so many books in such a small package! I’ll be keeping it in my purse at all times moving forward – wayyyy lighter than the books I used to carry around.

Make space.

In price negotiations, you have to be willing to walk away to get the best price.

Some people want to charge you a ‘rich country’ tax in negotiations at market stalls. It begins with ‘where are you from?’ before giving you a price. I can’t really say I blame them, but I still don’t want to pay more than the real market value.

When something has no listed price, the starting price has a lot of room for negotiation.

Always work to get out of my comfort zone.

Dry shampoo is overpriced corn starch. Refills are going to be cheap.

Planning too far in advance can be costly.

Not planning anything is also costly.

Find the sweet spot.

Online travelling groups are super useful and can help you save a lot of money.

Learn from others, always.

Watching a monkey steal someone’s breakfast never gets old.
