A gas fireplace warms every bedroom here, mixing classic details like an antique cage elevator with bold abstract paintings. This hotel is located just minutes away from Boston Common and Faneuil Hall.

Helpful Hints: Traveling Tips August 06 2015
Everyone dreams of traveling the world. Whether it be a trek to England or a spiritual journey to Dubai, traveling is something that everyone can benefit from. It helps us grow, experience different cultures, and provides us with memories to last a lifetime. Now that’s not to say that traveling is always easy, it is a learning process and you will constantly find yourself taking note on what to do to improve your experience. Here are some traveling tips to best prepare you for your next adventure:
- Plan a budget ahead of time
Always keep extra cash stashed away for emergency situations. This provides you with a cushion in possible conflict and is a comforting thing to have on yourself.
- Study the places you plan to go ahead of time
This way you can find things that interest you and be able to visit them when you reach your destination. This will help you plan your time wisely and be able to take in as much culture as possible while you are at your destination. Also learn some basic of the language of the place you are visiting to be able to at least slightly communicate with locals
- Wake up early
Don’t waste time sleeping away your days! Wake up early and soak in the culture as you wander around this foreign territory
- Keep an open mind
Being in a foreign area can be stressful and confusing, but don’t let yourself get caught up the negative aspect and instead embrace this new experience as a one in a lifetime chance to immerse yourself in a different culture. Try new foods, take new roads and keep a positive mindset
- Take a lot of photos
Document your trip so that you can look back at the photos and have warm memories to flood your mind with sweet nostalgia
- Meet some locals
Talk to locals of the land- find out places to go from them so that you can live like a local and not be limited to typical tourist traps
- Prepare for all types of weather
Weather can be unpredictable so pack things that you may not think you necessarily need but that you will be desperate for if you don’t have
- Immerse yourself in the culture
Avoid eating at chains or visiting places that are familiar to you. Try new things and experience instances that are out of the ordinary for you
- Make sure your passport is up to date
This is obviously very important. At least six months before you leave make sure everything having to do with your passport is lined up and ready to go. Also make a photocopy of your passport to have a backup in case anything happens to your first one
- Enjoy every moment!
Traveling is one of the most amazing experiences you can give yourself. Be sure to soak in each moment and create wonderful memories for youself
