Macker’s Travel Tips

    • Never kick a Scottish man
    • People generally walk on the same side of the sidewalk as the cars drive on. For example, in California we generally walk on the right side of the sidewalk but in London they walk on the left.
    • Never carry a plastic bag of any kind around monkeys. They will mistake it for food and run away with your cell phone.
    • India is the world’s greatest contradiction. While walking down the street a curry may drift under your nose. A smell so beautiful it’s like seeing a color for the first time. Just a block later you can use an outdoor bathroom with a smell that will make a hangover person throw up.
    • In Australia they have news show where girls read the daily news while taking their tops off. We are ready and waiting HBO.
    • When in Rome eat as many spaghetti carbanars as you can
    • Best ways to get through a long flight is a book and to never look at your watch.
    • Bring twice the clothes and half the money
    • Most the things you had to have at REI a compass, whistle, safety whatever you will never take out of your bag.
    • Bring some old clothes at the start of your trip and throw them away along your journey. Its fun to acquire local clothes as you go.
    • Never invest in sunglasses. Buy the cheap ones you will lose them.
    • You will get ripped off. Just smile and consider it a travel tax.
    • Do not be scared to ask people for help.
    • Never walk down the street with a map out. If you need to look up directions duck into a store or restaurant and get your path down.
