If you are travelling in a different country, you can always adjust your time so that you can plan a perfect schedule that suits you.

Jiyuu and I always prepare ourselves whenever we travel, we always check the flight first before we book it so that we can still study and work at the same time before exploring.

You should prioritize first all your homework or projects that needs to be submitted before planning for your travel.

Creating a timetable is important so that it doesn’t bother your sleeping schedule and can help you travel more.

It’s really important to know the time zone differences wherever you will go so that you are more prepared all the time.

After you booked your flight or planned your land tour, you should also consider checking the hotels or airbnb that has a fast and reliable wi-fi.

You can check all their recent reviews before booking to know if their wi-fi connection is superb so that you will study comfortably.

It’s also good to know the location of your booked hotel, it should be near the tourist attractions so that it will be less hassle for you.

Pro-tip: Don’t book a hostel! Instead look for a cheap hotel or airbnb with your own private room, fast wifi and not shared because you don’t want to be disturbed by your room mates. Remember, Be a smart traveller. 🙂

4.  Create a to-do list

Creating a to-do list everyday is really helpful because it can help you organize and enjoy your travel more.

Writing your to-do list or making a journal is really helpful so that you will know to study effectively.

I always do this so that I can manage my time, prepare myself and enjoy while travelling.

As an example, I always create my to-do list during my evening routine so that I can have more time the next morning to check my schedule.

Checking your schedule first is important so that your mind will not be bothered and feel overwhelmed while you enjoy your travel.

5.  Research back-up café

I remember when Jiyuu and I booked a perfect hotel that has a nice pool, overlooking view, great food but right after checking in we forgot to read the reviews about their bad internet connection and it’s really annoying that’s why we ended up spending a lot of time just by looking for another hotel or café that can save us.

Researching for a perfect café near you is really important too, so that it can help you study perfectly.

Imagine listening to your professor by sipping a cold brew or eating your favorite blueberry cheesecake while reading your notes in a aesthetic café. Amazing right? 🙂

You can also bring you iPad and your tablet too, in case your laptop is full in memory or it just stop working.
