  1. Visit the unpopular destinations: They might not be trendy on social media but they’re just as
    beautiful. These locations offer cheaper accommodation, meals, and activities. Be among the

    before or during your trip, such as missing luggage, cancelled flights, injuries, and illnesses. Stay
    safe out there and bring us back a souvenir!
