  • Adventure Travel: Set Your Limits

    Filed Under: Blogging

Travel can be exhilarating, fun, exotic and exciting but it’s important not to push yourself past your physical limits. Especially when you are taking part in adventure sports or vacations, you should know what a safe limit is for you. Whether you are a student on a gap year, or a family taking the vacation of a lifetime, buy insurance and stay healthy.

Have a physical exam before you go if you are concerned about your fitness or health. If you have recently undergone a procedure or surgery, make sure your doctor has passed you safe to fly and take part in the activities you plan to do.

If you are suffering from a cold, flu or other minor illness make sure you take it easy in the first days of your vacation – too much exertion can turn a minor condition into something more serious. If you feel ill, stop the activity and rest.

Know your own limits. If you cannot walk as far as the others in the group, walk for a half day and sight-see in the afternoon. If you have problems in the heat, book your vacation for the cool season or try a country with a moderate climate. Knowing your restrictions can help you towards a much more enjoyable vacation.
