Don’t be afraid of asking favors
If you want to explore the unexplored you must possess the art of being shameless. What I mean by saying this is you will face a lot of circumstances on your journey where you would have no other choice than asking for favors. This favor could range anywhere from asking for direction to asking for a night stay in some local’s home. If you won’t ask for it you won’t get it and there would be unfavorable circumstances if you don’t ask for it so don’t be afraid.
Never forget to keep some essentials handy all the time
There are some essentials that need to be taken care of whenever you are going for a trip, especially if that trip is to an unexplored destination. Some of these essentials are a torch, some healthy snacks, a raincoat or umbrella(whatever feels good to you.), sunglasses, a map, and compass (because you won’t get networks all the time if it really is a remote or unexplored location). An extra pair of shoes or slippers. You can add to these essentials as per your convenience but these are a must.
You should be in love with your company
If you are traveling to an unexplored destination, it will often happen that you will run out of things to do. In that case, you are only left with talking your heart out with the people you are traveling with. Or keeping quiet and sitting in a corner or maybe reading a book if you are traveling alone. Either way, you should be able to enjoy your company because that’s the only way out from boredom in such places.
Never try to explore the unexplored all by yourself
I understand that every traveler has an urge to discover something new. Something that the world hasn’t seen before. But sometimes this exploring exercise turns out to be too risky. There are wild animals or sometimes even goons in these areas. You should ask some locals before entering or exploring such areas or if possible take a guide with you.
You should be able to adjust in every situation
If you are traveling to an unexplored destination be ready to lose your comfort. It’s not a goodie-goodie life as portrayed by some travelers. Sometimes you don’t get the food you like or need. Sometimes you will have to sleep on floors or in tents. It would be too humid or too chilly. If you are not expecting any of this, consider dropping your plan.
