Here are some tips that may help you in 2014:

- Go to an event, at least once a month, if you’re not travelling. It’s important that you see new things, meet new people, and keep learning.  If you’re having trouble finding an event to go to click on - you are bound to find something worth going to here.

- Don’t pack or carry too many things with you on your travels, the less you have, the more you will be able to focus on your surroundings.

- Don’t worry about the money. Don’t be careless with what you spend, but don’t place greater value on possessions than experience. If you visit a place that you’ve always wanted to go to, no one will be able to take that away from you.

- Be yourself. And to the best of your ability, be whoever the hell you want to be. .

- Don’t forget your sun screen. Whether it’s a searing 40 degrees or 10 degrees below zero, don’t leave home without your sun screen. Skin cancer is real.

- Smile. As hopelessly cliché as it sounds, a smile is a universal language- everyone understands it and it will be a fruitful tool when you find yourself lost and foreign.
