Here's Everything You Need To Go Travelling In America!

If you’re lucky enough to be on a gap year or in between jobs, then you may be making the most of your time off by travelling to America. However, before you set off on your epic adventure, you must be sure to plan everything meticulously to ensure you make the most of your time there. Fear not, this needn’t be too difficult. Here’s everything you need in order to go travelling in The States.

Plane Tickets 
The hardest part about travelling is saving up for it in the first place. Hopefully, you’ve got a load of savings stashed away in your bank account. However, if you’re not that fortunate, then you’re going to need to find a way to pay for your plane tickets. Flying anywhere can be expensive, but especially to America - as it’s such a big place! Look on flight comparison websites such as Sky Scanner to find the best deal and book as far in advance as possible to save yourself that extra bit of money. If you’re not sure which state to fly to, then check out our travel guides.


Social Media
Once you’re out there, you’re going to need somewhere to post your awesome snaps and selfies to! Be sure to have Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts set up ready for your epic adventure. Did you even go if there are no photos? That’s what people will ask back home! Make sure you flood your friends’ feeds with epic holiday snaps! Take a dedicated camera for taking pictures of all the great landmarks you will come across, too. Be sure to get a data SIM for the time you’re away. That way, you’ll save money on roaming costs and be able to Snapchat all of your incredible experiences.

Car 
Getting about in America can definitely be costly, so it may be worth hiring a car if public transport looks like too much of a hefty cost! Car rental needn’t be expensive either. Many companies will let you hire a car on one coast and return it on the other at an alternative outlet. How handy!? Getting a car also enables you to go on a road trip and experience some of America’s incredible, lengthy routes. If worst comes to worst, you can always sleep in the back of your vehicle, too! That’ll save you some cash for your entrance into Disney World!

Cash
You might find yourself a bit short of money when travelling. So there are two ways to go about dealing with this. You could either postpone your travel, if you have the time to do so. That way, you could work solidly at home for twelve months, saving almost all of your money, before jetting off. Alternatively, you could wing it, which is a very popular method for travellers. This is because it allows them to immerse themselves into American society more authentically. Getting a small job at a bar or cafe can easily pay the bills for a hostel to stay in. At places like this, you may meet like-minded people who you could go on to travel with.


That’s everything you need to know, folks! Enjoy your travels.

Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing....

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
