  1. If the ATM is out of money or you miss a bus connection, the key is making the most out of the unplanned circumstances and not wasting time. You can explore stores, strike a conversation with locals, or do other new things until the situation is resolved.
  2. Waking up early is key. Not only will you avoid rush hour with other tourists, but you'll get better photos, better tickets (if you're in a city planning where to go) and be safer. Risky places are generally way safer in the early morning too.
  3. Sit down and observe what's going on. Take in the sights, the smells, the sounds, and pay close attention to the details in each. Compare them with how life is back where you are from and try to figure out why they're different where you're traveling to.
  4. Feel emboldened - this is likely your first time visiting a place, so you have many reasons to ask silly questions, do silly things, and just enjoy yourself.
  5. Volunteer when you can. Not only will you feel more connected with the country, but you'll also make friends who are locals and they'll give you tips, help you out, and tell you what to do and what to avoid. Check out http://grassrootsvolunteering.org/ for more.
  6. Taking photos is great, but also take videos! You'll be able to look back upon them and not only remember what you saw, but what it sounded like and so on. You can also go back later and revisit it to catch details you missed the first time around.
  7. Don't be discouraged if you want to travel somewhere or do something someone says can't be done- it's likely you just haven't found the right resources. Keep trying and persevere if you want to do something, and likely a way will present itself.
