Problems and Solutions: While traveling a problem may occur, think about those problems and how you would solve them.

While traveling you can run into problems. Here are some tips I thought that could help when traveling to a different country.

It's always good to know some of the current language in the country you're going to so learn some of the basics and maybe get a translate app on your phone (make sure it's a good one too). Once you do that then if you lose something or need to find a restaurant or other place then you can ask someone for help.

Optional: About the traveler. Who are you? Have you ever traveled?

I am a person who like's to do mostly outdoor activities, sometimes i just like staying home and reading or help cook dinner with my mom, etc. The only time I have traveled out of the country is when my family and I went to Ecuador to visit some old neighbors. We had a lot of fun there and I loved being in a different country. On our way there we stopped in Panama but didn't do much.
