4 Steps You Should Take Before A Longer Trip *

Are you thinking about heading away on a longer trip now that the world is starting to open again? You could be considering travelling for a couple of months rather than a couple of weeks or even an entire season (Remember that time I worked as a Chalet girl for a winter season?). If so, these are the steps we recommend that you take. 

Planes on a run way ready to take off
  1. Get Your Garden Ready

First, you need to make sure that you are getting your garden ready if you have one. It’s important to do this, particularly if you are planning on going travelling through the summer. If you don’t, then there is a good chance that your garden will look like a complete disaster on your return home. Remember, your grass grows fast through the summer months so it could even be worth hiring a gardener to keep things under control. (A handy husband also works well).

If you don’t want to marry someone just for your garden work. Then you could consider investing in the right tools to complete the job yourself. This could include a black and decker trimmer to keep shrubs and weeds under control. If you find the black and decker trimmer auto feed not working properly, then you should look at a couple of guides online to troubleshoot the more common issues. Taking it apart and having screws leftover is not ideal!

2. Put The Right Security Plans In Place 

Next, you need to make sure that you are putting the right security plans in place. A home that is left empty is always going to be vulnerable to those dodgy criminals. That’s why a lot of people who are thinking about travelling for the long term often tend to rent rather than to buy. If you don’t want to do this, then you should consider having alarms for your home. Also, think about improving the locks. Experts claim smart locks will provide improved security so they will be perfect for those who are constantly travelling. 

You might also want to think about advanced security solutions such as CCTV systems. These can act as a deterrent and stop people from even thinking about breaking into your property. You can also monitor from afar and make sure your home is all safe and happy.

3. Manage Your Life On The Road

You should also think about looking at ways that you can continue to manage your life while you are away from home. One of the ways that you can do this is with a cloud server. A cloud server can be set up for your home . It will mean that you will be able to access any and all-important documents that are stored there. This should provide you with the peace of mind that nothing is going to slip through the cracks while you are half a world away. You can also back up them travel photos, just in case you phone gets lost or your memory card decides to corrupt.

4. Think About Money 

Finally, you should make sure that you are thinking about your money situation. It’s important to make sure that you are going to be able to afford your travel adventure. One of the ways that you can do this is by working while you travel. You might even want to think about setting up your own travel blog and then taking the necessary steps to monetize it.
