女性旅游须知一

这个世界上的男女平等主义者都希望我能向其他国家展现女性特有的气质和魅力。但是在亚洲的许多地方,严格的宗教信仰并不容许暴露的穿着。我得打扮得像男生一点,为了避免不必要的危险。

什么,最多可以带25公斤行李?

旅行时选择穿什么衣服是一件棘手的事情;我带的东西不一定适合所有人。但通常来讲,我只会带这些:

  • 一条轻便的裤子
  • 一条牛仔裤
  • 一条卡其色短裤
  • 两套海滩装
  • 两件吊带

  • 两件宽松的t恤
  • 一件宽松的长袖衬衫
  • 一件长袖t恤
  • 两套比基尼(可以混搭最好)
  • 一件套衫/卫衣
  • 一件长袖开襟羊毛衫
  • 一件防水便携夹克
  • 一条大围巾 (可以一件多用,拿来当围裙,浴巾,裙子或者披肩)
  • 一双平底人字拖
  • 一双软舞鞋
  • 一双运动鞋/软跑鞋

我一直建议少带一些不必要的东西;路上会有很多机会购置这些穿的东西。当然到了城市里,很容易就像在家一样穿多了。即便如此,无论你要去的目的地天气如何,考虑多带一些易于收纳的衣服总是更有意义。

如果想要避免万一,要带的东西简直太多了,但只要你带上了应急救助包(邦迪,抗菌膏药,止痛药,补水盐以及止泻片),避孕套(记住,紧急避孕药并不能防性传染病)以及洗手液,并且确保你已经有合适的旅游险做保障,那就没有问题了。

万精油是解决蚊虫叮咬的利器。如果你要去亚洲的话,记得带上几支,要是你有什么日常处方要服或者针要打,也尽管跟你的医生和护士讲。

无 论你是身在自己的故乡还是世界的另一个角落,面对危险容易受伤害的总是女孩子;不要让你自己成为目标。值钱的东西要在你的住所里藏好(必要的时候要借助接 待处的保险箱),不要在公众场合炫富。来到一个新的地方,你可能会认为你遇到了一群特好的新朋友,但始终要看牢你喝的东西,不要接受陌生人递来的饮料。在 有些国家,故意带上一个婚戒也可以帮你减少风险。

美丽有罪

保持自然美可能不是每个人的选 择,但我却乐在其中。这都取决于你的舒适区在哪里。我每天还是化一点妆的(淡妆),虽然我身边仍有许多美容用品系列(遮瑕产品,睫毛膏,古铜色粉底,润唇 膏),面霜,洁面乳,护发素以及沐浴乳(用来洗头洗澡,偶尔刮毛),但我并没有深陷其中并为此感到高兴。

我的头发风干的同时可以保持不卷,所以我根本不需要考虑带上一个吹风机或者直发器(尤其是在高温地带,为什么要自寻苦恼呢!?),但是我会带一个锉刀(而不是指甲剪)来料理我的指甲。

最后,要记住:直觉是很灵验的,它能在你无所察觉的情况下告诉你那条街晚上不能去逛,说服你在一个未做功课的旅舍中住宿,或是让某些人知道你在哪里。

哦对了,一定要涂防晒油哦。

Proper tipping etiquette in the U.S. and Europe

When traveling, tipping is a typical practice when dining out in restaurants in Europe or U.S.

But that is just not where tipping is also practiced. For a frequent traveler, tipping is usually involved in almost all manner of activity during a trip.

I really don’t want to tip, but in some countries, I have no choice.

The most important thing is that the traveler knows the right way of tipping. Here are some tipping etiquette basics that most travelers should know.

Tipping In Hotels

When arriving at the hotel, the first person you may meet may either be the doorman or the bellman.

Travelers may give a tip to the one who will help them with carrying their luggage in through the hotel.

The usual tip for this is $ 1 to $ 2 per bag in addition to tips for some extra service like assisting you at checkout.

The hotel concierge is the go-to guy if you need something immediately, even if it is hard to come by.

In Exchange for such services, tipping from $ 5 to $ 10 is usually the norm, considering some of the amazing feats they can do for you as a customer.

Tipping On Cruises

When going out on a cruise, the usual tips go to cruise personnel who work on the dining area or those who takes care of your rooms.

For the waiters and other dining staff providing you good service, the tip may range from $ 2 to $ 3 per person.

For those room attendants, the usual tipping rate goes for $ 2 to $ 3 per day.

Tipping On Restaurants

Restaurants and eateries usually are known as a common ground for tipping.

The usual or accepted rate is anywhere from 15 to 20 percent of the bill but can even be increased if service was truly exceptional.

In most fancy restaurants, there are also other restaurant personnel like the maitre d’ to tip especially when it comes to providing you with a table to dine.

On a crowded day, it is normal to tip up to $10 especially if you come to the restaurant without a reservation yet are still promptly given a table.

Restroom attendants in fancy restaurants may also be tipped $1.

Restaurant personnel that provide you some personal service in your table may be given 10 percent of the total bill, even higher if given some exquisite service.
