Our things for Around The World Travel

Day 6 before the beginning of Our Around The World Travel.
We decided to put all our things together, which we will take with us.

Based on the experience of our previous trips, it was decided to minimize the list of things.
Very often, taking something with me, like many T-shirts, I did not have time to put them all on.
Especially since we are the beginning of our journey in Asia, where a very creative and not expensive jersey.
Last winter we bought some good T-shirts in Thailand, for a year of active use in Bulgaria, their color did not change, the pattern was not worn and they did not weed.

The most important thing in a long journey, do not be afraid to part with a thing that you do not need. Do not bother your back, give it to the local, give it to someone it needs more.

Most of our things, we bought via the Internet, on Ebay and Aliexpress. For those who are interested, the links below are in the description.

In our backpacks:
1. Action Camera GoPro Session 4
2. Selfish stick for GoPro Session 4
3. Apple Notebook
4. Case for GoPro
5. Backpack Adidas
6. Backpack WillPower
7. Post Cards and different Souvenirs (magnets, Bulgarian ceramics, Bulgarian spices and Bulgarian Rose Oil) from our Ebay Store
8. Sleeping Bag
9. Chargers for Phones
10. Charger for Apple Notebook
11. Samsung J7 Prime
12. Samsung A3
13. Charge Adapter different Types of Keys
14. EBook Amazon Kindle
15. Air Pillows
16. Wallet
17. Passport
18. Baseball Cap
19. Uno Cards
20. Sunglasses

International Driving Permit

Driver’s license.

Think about it, and whether you will have to drive a car on a journey. Whether you drive on your car or hire a car for that, you need a license for driving a vehicle.

Say: “I even got it at the age of 18!” Good. But not all countries have signed the convention. Not in all countries of the category coincide, and in what language are written your data in the license.

For example, in the European Union the internal form of the driving license is the same and with the Norwegian Driving Permit you can ride in Greece. In the United States of America, each state has its own kind of plastic rights. And in Asian countries in general can be a cardboard with incomprehensible symbols. In the post-Soviet space – the Cyrillic, in Europe and Latin countries – Latin, in Arab countries – Arabic ligature from right to left, in China and Japan – hieroglyphics.

How, in the case of verification, violations, the police will understand that you have the right to drive a car or how will the rent car give you a vehicle for hire?

For this purpose, international rights have been invented. In fact, your acting rights are only issued in the form of a booklet in which the data is translated into the main languages ​​of the world.

They will actually look less seriously than a plastic brother: they can get wet, tear or crumple, but they will be very useful.

The manufacturing time for us took half an hour.
For manufacturing, basic rights, identity cards and photos were required as a visa.
The fee was 2.5 €.

Money, paper, coins, cash

Money, paper, coins, cash – all these are opportunities, this is moving forward.

Do not be afraid to start your journey with some money.
After all, a shortage or a limited amount of money always makes you wiggle your brain and get out, come up with income options.

On a trip, make sure you make copies of your bank cards. If VISA is issued to the main account, then order an additional MASTERCARD and vice versa.
As shown by the practice of travel: in Europe (for example, Germany) can not accept VISA for payment, and in Asia (for example, Thailand) – European cards.
Despite this, it is always worthwhile to have a little cash in your wallet: euro for the European Union and dollars for the rest of the world.

Another useful tip, if possible, change some of the currency of the country you are eating. As a rule, it can be done in the central large banks of your city. Well, or at the airports on arrival but with a less favorable rate. And having a local cash you will easily and without loss get to the city center or hotel by taxi metro or bus.

Our journey runs from Europe to Asia, Australia and the United States of America. And if in the latter you can manage non-cash and already contactless payments from bank cards integrated into the smartphone, then in Asia, as before, trust in the physical cache with watermarks.

We prepared and exchanged:
100 AED – Dirham of the United Arab Emirates
500 INR – Indian Rupee
20 SGD – Singapore Dollar
300 – Thailand Bahts
500 000 VND – Vietnamese Dong
40 AUD – Australian Dollar
And 50 USD – American dollar at 1 dollar

Mayanmar Visa

To visit Minmar you may need to get an electronic visa or or obtain a visa directly from the embassy of the country.

The process of obtaining a visa is not so complicated.
You need to go to the e-visa registration site, fill in the necessary data, passport details, your accommodation, the airport through which you enter the country, upload a photo and pay a fee of $ 50.
