"Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind."
— Anthony Bourdain
A MissAdventure is adventerous and ambitious at heart but we can get especially fragile during those days of the month even against our best will. Sometimes the best way is to distract yourself with the beauty of a new place or a new experience. Other times it’s better to grab a good book, some take out, and enjoy some down-time in your hotel.
But what if we told you that even on those days you can travel as much as you want, swim in the ocean, climb that mountain, seal that deal and perform like a #missadventure any other day?
We have been on the road a lot, so we put together our best advice for staying on top of the game, any day, any time.
- Preparation is half success they say and we agree. Apart from knowing your cycle and body you should have everything with you especially if you will be traveling somewhere remotely.
- It is always good to stick to your regular routine as much as possible, even while travelling. This will help you combat the stress related to travel like jet lag. It is no secret that not having the conditions of your home will impact your body. Eat regularly, stay active and hydrated.
- Remember to relax, you are on holiday so plan to take it easier on those days and chill if this is what you feel like
