    How to Plan an Epic Travel Adventure

    How to Plan an Epic Travel Adventure

    Where are you headed to next? If you’re an avid traveler, you probably get asked that question a lot. But what if you’ve just decided that traveling the world is more you cup of than sitting in an office all day? Don’t worry. Plenty of people feel exactly the same, and that’s why you can find entire communities of digital nomads all of the world. So, if your goal is to join them, one of the first steps is deciding where to go and how to get there. In this guide, we go over everything you need to know about planning your adventure.

    Create Your Travel Wish List

    You may already use a travel journal while you are on vacation but planning the perfect trip should also start with some brainstorming and note taking. With so many exciting places to visit, you might not know where to begin. Sit down and think about what you’re looking for in terms of travel destinations. Do you want do visit somewhere exciting where you can go bungee jumping, or do want to find a tranquil place where you can sip cocktails on the beach? Keep in mind that this is your want list, so it doesn’t have to be set in stone. These are just places you have on your radar, so feel free to add or subtract them from your list.

    Think About Your Needs

    Aside from your wants, also you need think about your needs. if you plan on working remotely, you would need to have a stable internet connection regardless of location. If you’re taking family with you, you might need kid-friendly solutions, like daycare or easy access to pediatricians.

    Financing Your Trips

    Paying for your travels probably be at the top of your to-do list. However, you’d be surprised how many people throw caution to the wind and set on to see the world. As spontaneous as this might be, it’s usually doesn’t work out well. Why? Because you need to know that you have enough money stashed away just in case you need. Even if you’re working as a digital nomad, emergencies can come up. A good rule of thumb is to save at least three to six months of total monthly expenses prior to leaving, even better if you can save more. If you have some cash tucked away and are eager to get going, you could also consider taking out a personal loan. Depending on your credit, you can be approved for a higher amount at a low interest rate. You can then use to fund your trip or simply keep it as a cushion and build your credit while paying it back.

    Research Your Destinations

    So, you’ve picked your destinations, have the cash and are ready to go, but you also need to do a little research prior to catching a flight. Look at any possible travel and vaccine restrictions, the best and worst areas to visit, and whether you need a visa to remain longer than 90 days. You should inquire whether you need specific inoculations prior to entering the country. Certain places like in Malaysia or Asia, do require a series of vaccinations prior to being allowed to enter. Since they have to be administered at specific intervals, you need to do your detective work in advance.

    Amazing Steady Straps for the Whole Family

    SteadyStraps $10 at https://steadystraps.com/

    SteadyStraps is here to prevent an expensive dreaded mishap from ruining your trip. It’s hands down the must-have smartphone grip in 2022. Choose how you hold onto your phone and say goodbye to sticky and unreliable adhesives. Let’s face it, you don’t want to drop your phone in the lake while taking a photo. SteadyStraps is here to ease your worry and make your trip easier.

    SteadyStraps® started as a burst of inspiration after dropping our phones way too many times. We thought: “There must be a better way to hold our phones!”

    As it turns out, there was! We decided to go to the local fabric store, purchase some material, and cut it to fit our phones. It worked! We couldn’t believe how much easier it made both holding and using our phones. When using the strap, we haven’t dropped our phones since that day!

    Our daughter, who was riding the subway in NYC everyday, found the strap enabled her to hold her phone more securely and comfortably. She encouraged us to pursue it as a business and SteadyStraps® was born!

    THE BUSINESS

    We worked hard to get the product just right. Everything is USA sourced and made. We custom source the elastic material, which is super slim, strong, flexible, and non-allergenic. We use Velcro® Brand hook & loop Fasteners for a secure closure. The designs are printed through a dye-sublimation process which allows our designs to stay looking great and not fade with use. SteadyStraps® Brand phone straps are washable and can be thrown in with your laundry or run under the sink for a quick rinse!

    Initially, we launched the product in the B2B market helping companies to better promote their brand and advertise their business at the grassroots level. In October 2020, we entered the consumer market and launched our ecommerce store with more than 50 fun designs which people can collect and easily change depending on their preference, outfit, or activity. Our SteadyStraps® Brand phone straps really shine in these casual, everyday settings and people love them!

     

    We are thrilled that our straps are enjoyed by so many people. Check out all the great reviews by so many satisfied users.
