Myths are super fun! I mean, who doesn't love to discuss whether or not the earth is flat or debate about whether bigfoot could be in your backyard. Either way, myths allow us to tip the jar of curiosity and explore the belief that something unusual could be so factual.
I'm all for discussing the possibilities of myths but there are some I just can't seem to wrap my head around. What myths just make you sit with your nose scrunched because you absolutely don't want to believe that they are true? For me, those travel myths get me every single time. I guess I get it, times are changing and the world has become more advanced than ever but if that's so, why must these travel myths still linger refusing to die off?
If you are still holding onto these travel myths, it's time you let them go! The impossible can happen through travel and it's about time you believe it! Don't worry, we are debunking some of the most common travel myths just for you because now is the time to let go of the things that are holding you back!
This may tie into our previous myth but this is one that you need clarification on and boy, do I have it for you! It is awesome that you can visit one travel site and compare hotels and other things that advertise "the best deal of your entire life". Trust me, if you take the time to research, you will find that a lot of those deals are a little more expensive than shopping directly on a hotel's website.
Third-party travel sites may seem convenient but please do your research before you commit to a price as there could be something better lingering beyond the obvious.

buy your plane tickets months in advance
I am not encouraging you to wait till the week before to purchase your plane ticket. But I am encouraging you to do your research and depending on the location, you could find that being flexible can offer you a lot of brownie points and actual dollars. For me, I like to keep an eye on plane tickets starting months in advance and

someone has to speak english
This provides you with a legup if you are in a situation that you need help getting out of, for example, if you are lost. Learning basic sentences or common practices can help with your confusion and even make the locals in the area appreciate your effort. Besides, wouldn't it be nice to be able to order your meal in the waiter's language rather than struggling for 20 minutes trying to explain that you don't want onions on your sandwich?
