Hi, I am an 18 year old guy living in Scotland. I have a good steady job here but can't resist the urge to travel before I get too tied down and it becomes too difficult. I am looking to start my trip in around a year and a half and would love some advice on the best places to go, what to avoid, how to budget and any other general advice really. I would like to spend 6 months to a year travelling and doing something different rather than just visiting tourist hotspots. I am also travelling alone and if there is anyone who wishes to join me then that would be great too!

Thanks

Get in the habit of looking back when you get up to leave somewhere. Travel is very distracting, and you’re probably carrying more stuff than when you’re at home, so you’re more likely to leave a jacket or journal at that Parisian cafe table where you were people watching.
