Honey Hips Travel Tips:
DON'T take an edible before getting on your flight JUST IN CASE you get heavily interrogated before and have to answer 100 personally invasive questions on the spot.
However, DO take an edible once you are seated so a 12 hour flight goes by in minutes.
DO get cash converted before you go to the airport, the exchange rates are heavily inflated there.
DON'T forget this is real money and not monopoly money.
DO use Splitwise App if you are traveling with one or twenty. #SPLITWISEIT
DO stay at party hostels, they are EVERYTHING. #partyhostel
Barcelona Recommendation: Kabul Party Hostel
Rome Recommendation: Yellow Hostel & Bar
DO go on the walking tours or bike tours. Regardless if you are hungover and need to throw up. What you see is magic and what these adventures are all about.
DO meet as many people as you possibly can and ask as many questions to quickly get to know them and take as many pictures as possible with these like-minded beautifully curious nomads. Some of these souls will leave a lasting impression on you and you’ll want to remember them.
DO leave room in your luggage for souvenirs and shopping when you travel. 50 pounds ain't that cute anyway.
DON'T pack jeans or boots when there is a heatwave in the Summer.
DO find a cute fanny pack that goes with everything. This will be your buddy.
DO have your personal belongings on your body and mind at all times. There ARE pick-pocketers disguised as nice, good looking, cheek kissing men.
DO go off the beaten path after seeing the Main Streets.
DO meet a local so you can see how they live vs. how we visit.
DO take your bikini top off at the beaches in Europe. Its beautifully freeing, gives you a chance to work on those tan lines, and you don't know anyone around you so FK* IT.
DO book a flight in the early morning so you can experience what it is like to go straight from the nightclub to the airport. It's a unconventional RUSH of excitement.
DO eat the carbs while in Italy.
DEFINITLEY DO eat the gelato too. You will walk it off.
DO take photos of everything (for later viewage) while staying PRESENT.
Videos are a big DO DO too. You’ll want to look back on all of this and feel it.
DO fall in love with everything and everyone you meet.
DO try to sink up your flights with check in times, holding onto luggage sucks.
DO plan for 20 of your best friends to meet up with you at some point across the world.
DO ask the hostess if they have a table for 16 even if it's insanely busy and you think it is not possible whatsoever.
DO forgo sleep if you feel the need to stay up and connect.
DO whatever you want.
DO rent boats in Ibiza and visit Formentera Island.
DO kiss your friends on the lips, regardless of their gender.
DO watch a sunrise wherever you go.
DO celebrate the people around you whether its birthdays, anniversaries, successes, or for just simply living.
DON'T go out without cash and your phone. That's just stupid.
DO bring hats while traveling. I know they are hard to transport but they are needed and way too fly.
DO go to a day pool party, wherever you go. I INSIST!
DO Conga Line out of small spaces if you have a big group.
DO catch every sunset.
DO anything for the people that you are with.
DO become the weirdest people at every club and dance in circles around a red bull can.
DO bring weird things with lights on them everywhere you go so you can find each other easily.
DON'T hand these to strangers.
DO know your love languages and try to learn the love languages of the loved ones around you.
DO make speeches at dinners showing gratitude and go around the table sharing peaks.
DO try to meet every DJ's managers.
DON'T rush to the hospital if it's your last night in Ibiza and you bust ya knee on the dance floor. You can get your 12 stitches when we get back to the states with your own insurance anyway.
DO give yourself a full 24 HOURS after you return before you have to go back to work.
DO write down your memories as soon as possible, if not during/nightly.
DON'T FORGET: That you are exactly where you need to be!
THIS LIFE IS WORTH LIVING. THIS WORLD IS MEANT TO BE EXPLORED.
NEVER STOP CELEBRATING. NEVER STOP EXPLORING. NEVER STOP LOVING.
