So you’ve decided to go on an expedition with GoExploreWith.me! It will be a great experience, we are already sure of it. But before, you get on the plane, we ask you to read some tips on how to prepare for the trip. This will certainly make the whole process of cooperation easier for us.
Our tours have the word “unique” in their slogan, as this is our motto. If you are tired of boring and standard tours from travel agencies whose knowledge and experience is reduced to sales only, you have come to the right place. Let’s do something you’ll remember for a long time, as the best vacation of your life (until your next trip with us). But how to prepare for it?
All of our expeditions are marked with a level of difficulty, so it will be easy to find something for you. Simply put, the moment you step outside your comfort zone, you need to make sure you are qualified to do so. In other words, even if you really want to dive, you won’t go down to 50 meters without a technical diver certificate. Or if you don’t like the cold, you’re unlikely to decide to make a difficult trip north. It is just that everyone has their own “Mount Everest.”
This is a very important point that may prevent you from participating in the expedition. Remember that the most important document on all expeditions abroad is your passport. But your passport must first and foremost be valid. Many countries require your passport to remain valid for a minimum of 6 months from the date of your intended entry.
In addition, the passport must be in good physical condition, with no signs of damage, the data in it should be up-to-date. And, which is not often thought of, the passport must have free pages for entry stamps.
If you are not sure whether your passport is acceptable, contact us. On the other hand, if you know that your passport is expiring or your data is outdated, think about replacing it as soon as possible.
Due to the nature of our expeditions, we require the presentation of a medical certificate stating that there are no medical contraindications to this type of activity. Template of the certificate will be available to our participants.
If you know that you are constantly taking specialized pharmaceuticals, make sure that they are also available locally or bring an adequate supply with you. Here, however, you will need to have a doctor’s certificate stating the need to carry these medications with you, and you may need to have this certificate translated into a foreign language. Since all this may take time, we strongly suggest that you do not leave it to the last minute. The medications taken must not conflict with the above-mentioned certificate of no contraindication.
In most of our trips, the necessary equipment is provided by us, but it may happen that you will need to bring some personal equipment. The kind you just don’t borrow. This includes clothing and footwear.
Prepare accordingly to the complexity of the expedition and its purpose. Obviously, you are unlikely to go in heavy winter boots, to Thailand for scuba diving, but you are also unlikely to go in flip-flops to the mountains. Just think carefully about what you will be doing and what you need.
This also matters when choosing an expedition. For example, I personally would love to see myself on top of Everest, but I know that my shape is very far from that necessary for such a feat. So if you decide to do something beyond your current capabilities it would be a good idea to prepare yourself mentally and physically.
Remember that while you are in a foreign country, you are bound by the laws of that country and not your country of origin. We would very much appreciate your taking this into account, especially in the context of stimulants and other such attractions. What may be allowed in your country, in the country we will be in may be punished very strictly.
Finally, a request and advice at the same time, don’t be afraid to ask questions, because it is better to clarify everything before you leave home than to be disappointed or surprised on the spot. Our team will be happy to answer all your questions and help you choose the right expedition. So, get in touch with our team.
