If you are a first-time traveler, especially if you are traveling internationally for the first time, then your head is probably spinning right now. Between all of the travel planning, questions about what to pack, the unknowns of dealing with a different culture and perhaps even a different language, and the uncertainty of what you can expect to experience when you arrive, it can be a little bit overwhelming.
Even though it has been well over a decade since I traveled internationally for the first time, I can still remember the range of emotions I went thru when I was planning and booking my first trip. The excitement, the nervousness, and the uncertainty were all palpable. Those same emotions are what got me absolutely hooked on travel.
