Part-time traveller, Full-Time Brummie

Recurring travel habits…

I’ve been re-reading and updating some of my old travel blogs to add on here, and I noticed that some phrases, activities and patterns are often repeated through each trip. Here are some of the things I’ve noticed so far:

What are your travel habits? And which ones will you try and break in 2016?

  1. […] was A Traveller or a Tourist (and concluded I was a bit of both), took a lighthearted look at my Recurring Travel Habits and gave some (hopefully) useful Travel Planning […]

  2. This post made me smile. Actually no, it made me laugh out loud 🙂 Yes, some of those points may/do relate to us!! Enjoyed reading it.

    Haha so any of these are true for us too. The language one particularly – I once good involved in a French bakery conversation that involved a lot of laughing as I had plucked up the courage on day three of the holiday to place a 5 item order confidently in French. The shame 🙂

  4. hehehe so true. If I don’t take good notes, my trips recaps look like a training brochure for bartender school with blurred out famous buildings in the background

  5. We always go to the Irish Bar to use a loo😀

  6. Inevitably my boyfriend with his long legs will want to walk eeeverywhere and me with much shorter legs will protest and he will refuse to take any form of transportation and then my feet will usually be in such rough shape we have to for the next day. WITHOUT FAIL 😠😠😠😠

  7. Whats up with hotel room lights? Takes me 15 minutes to figure out what works what.

      And you will always switch every light on apart from the one you want. And don’t get me started on those ipad controlled things where you flush the toilet when you want to open your curtains…

    We collect tacky refrigerator magnets, too! We always try to find the restaurants the locals will eat it, if we’re eating out. Usually, the best are the local breakfast joints.

      Good tips Jennifer – only some times you can’t work out who are the locals and who are the tourists! I guess the locals don’t need menus with pictures on them…

    Lol I loved that you complain about walking but love a free walking tour!! 😉

    I’ve done most of these too! I really feel the same way about architecture and gardens, rather than museums and galleries.

      I complain about walking but doesn’t mean i don’t DO walking! Although we were introduced to the world of hop on hop off buses in Porto – why have we never used them before? 😀

      • josypheen says:

        I’ve never used those either. I guess I always think of the overpriced ones in London so I didn’t give them a go in other cities…

  10. travel habits for me are checking out the neighbourhood I’m staying in and finding a local bar in said neighbourhood can easily walk “home” from.
