Interested in international travel but not sure where to start with your planning? The Aspiring Traveler's Handbook, written by expert world traveler Jackie Laulainen, offers step-by-step guidance to taking that first trip. From choosing a destination, to buying a plane ticket, to getting a visa or passport, to staying safe abroad, to what to do with your cell phone, and everything in between, this book covers answers many questions of first-time travelers. As a budget-minded traveler, Jackie also gives insider tips to saving money while traveling. Here's a peek at what you will learn from this book: Find out exactly what you should look for and watch out for in a destination country before you decide where to go. Not sure what you need to do to apply for a passport or visa? You'll find that out, too. Get the inside scoop about finding a great deal on a plane ticket, so you can enjoy a bigger budget abroad or even another trip in your calendar. Find out how to pack efficiently, so you don't overpack or bring the wrong type of luggage for your trip. Take advice straight from the budget expert about planning (and staying on) a budget for your travels, so you don't have unrealistic expectations and can make your money last as long as possible. Learn the many tricks of protecting yourself and your valuables abroad, so you can take preventive measures before any bad situations arise. Find out what important things you need to take care of at home before you leave, so your life abroad can be more stress-free and enjoyable. Learn about international programs and opportunities that might give you just the structure you need to go abroad. Be inspired to actually make your travel dreams a reality. If you want to travel but have so many questions you don't even know what they are, this book was written specifically for YOU.
