Top Travel Tips For Introverts

Great tips!

Bonded By Adventure

Hey travel lovers and welcome back to a whole new year of blogging! We have some great posts for you in 2019, but for now we are going to be sharing with you some of our favourite travel tips for introverts in celebration of World Introvert Day.

  1. Always travel with headphones, a book and maybe even a sleep mask – If you are too nervous to talk to people then this is one of the easiest ways to avoid conversation without appearing to be really rude.
  2. Try a retreat – There are plenty of different options for retreats available, whether it’s writing, spa, yoga, or something else. Retreats tend to offer a calm and quiet space in pristine natural settings. You will probably end up surrounded by like minded people who like to keep to themselves.
  3. Order room service – This can be a nice break if you have not…

The 5 Essentials I Can’t Travel Without!

Travelling can be super fun but it can also turn into a nightmare really fast if you don’t do it right. These are somethings I’ve picked up that are sure to put a positive spin on your travels!

Reading material- Always carry something to read while travelling because it can get super boring. If you want to see the scenery or something that’s fine but if you’re flying or aren’t super interested in the scenery I would suggest definitely bringing along something to read.

Makeup- To see the full list of makeup items I travel with click here. I usually travel with at least some makeup items because travelling can really take it out of you and you might end up looking exhausted so having a couple of makeup items can help you look fresh and awake even after a long journey.

An extra pair of clothing- Just in case you get stuck somewhere remember to carry along a fresh pair of clothes and if you’re able to, a towel. It really saved me when I missed my flight!

Snacks- Let’s be honest- plan food is usually the worst. Getting good food can be difficult when you’re travelling and ironically you need good food when you’re travelling because it can be very tiring and exhausting. Make sure to carry some filling snacks so that you can stay energized during your travels.

Medicine- It’s always a good idea to keep some stomach/flu medicine with you just in case. If you’re a anxious flyer some anti-anxiety/sleep medication would also be a good idea. It’s hard and sometimes not possible to find medicine while travelling and that’s why you should always carry some with you.

5 Makeup Products I Can’t Travel Without

Moisturizer- This is my number one must have for travelling. It’s really easy to get dry skin or even damage your skin when you’re travelling since it’s not always something you think about when travelling but it’s important. Plus, just putting on a little moisturizer especially on your face can make you look brighter and more awake even when you’re not feeling that way after a long trip!

BB Cream- It’s like foundation but lighter and looks more natural. I always prefer using a BB Cream when travelling instead of a foundation because foundations are really heavy and after a while my face starts feeling like it’s painted on if the journey is too long. BB creams are much more comfortable to wear when travelling and they cover up your blemishes while giving you a more natural look.

Lip Balm- When you’re travelling it’s easy to get dehydrated and your lips might end up looking like you came back from the dead by the end of the journey. Lip balm will keep your lips looking and feeling soft and hydrated and I that’s why I always prefer to use lip balm instead of lipstick or lip gloss.

Highlighter- This is one of those makeup items that I need with me at all times. I love how hydrated and awake adding just a little bit of highlighter makes you look even if you don’t have any other makeup on. It is definitely an essential makeup product when travelling!

Eyebrow Pencil- Waking up and realizing your eyebrows are no longer on fleek or even worse have been smudged off completely is horrible. Always carry an eyebrow pencil (or whatever product/products you use for your eyebrows) with you at all times when travelling!

Addis Ababa Part 2- Food

If you haven’t read the first blog post about my time in Ethiopia you can check it out here.

I felt like I needed to do an entire post just dedicated to all the amazing food we ate because there were so many things and it was just so delicious. I was really surprised to begin with because they had so many vegan and vegetarian dishes.

Our meals included their traditional Injera bread which is naturally vegan and gluten free. The rice was also really flavourful and delicious- usually mixed with some stir fried vegetables.

The buns were also absolutely amazing. They were super soft and chewy and so delicious. The darker bun was a traditional Ethiopian one that was salted at the bottom and they told us they usually make it in a pan rather then bake it. It was sort of crispy on the outside and very soft on the inside- the taste kind of reminded me of a pretzel.

Addis Ababa Part 1- Travels And Sightseeing

Since we were in Ethiopia for 2 days we decided to do a little exploring. We asked at the hotel what places we should visit and he gave us a map with the most popular tourist destinations and so we decided to check them out.

First we decided to head to Entoto Hill which has the most beautiful view of Addis Ababa. It was absolutely gorgeous!!

 

Also around that area was a cathedral and a smaller museum that we absolutely loved!

Next we hurried to the National Museum which was going to close soon. It was absolutely fascinating. Different floors had different exhibitions. The first floor had archeological artifacts, the second floor had paintings and art and the ground floor had paleontological replicas and bones.

Then we did a little shopping and got a few beautiful souvenirs to remember this wonderful trip by. We even explored the hotel which was filled with amazing art and culture.

Also I really have to say that one of the reasons we had such a great time was because the people there were so great! They were super friendly and helpful and inviting. Plus, they were so proud of the culture they had managed to preserve for all these years and they were just happy to share it with us as we were to learn about it!

My Crazy Flight

So I’m back in Canada- we arrived yesterday and oh boy do I have a crazy story for you!

It was super rainy in Nairobi so our flight got delayed and consequently we missed our flight to Toronto and I was stuck in Ethiopia for 2 days which was a true blessing in disguise because I had the most amazing time ever! The food was amazing and the country is so beautiful. There is so much greenery everywhere I was blown away. I’m super busy at the moment getting everything ready for school and stuff but I will absolutely be posting lots of pictures of it as soon as I get some time as well as some more details of all the places we visited. Just wanted to post a little update before that.

A No From The Universe

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a while it’s because the universe hates me. My laptop’s screen broke again and I had to get it replaced. Luckily I’ve got it back now and it’s fine.

Anyway, just wanted to give you a little update on what’s going on with me. On Thursday, we decided to go to this place called Village Market and it ended up being super fun! It has a really artsy vibe and it’s just such a fun place although it’s really big so it takes forever to get from one end to the other!

We ended up going to one of my favourite bookstores in Kenya called Between The Lines which is just so pretty!
