Skills Builder: Wish You Were Here

Last week, my sister and I started our second Skills Builder activity for the British Girlguiding Overseas!

The activity was called, Wish You Were Here. And, it was part of the topic called, Explore.

The first activity was to learn about timelines.

The most important thing that we learned is that you have to think about the order of things when you plan a trip.

For example, it is important to make sure that you book a hotel after you book your flight. If you forgot, you would have no place to sleep. And, you would be wasting your money booking a room at the last minute.

We also learned that you want to exchange your money before you get to the airport. This is because you usually have to pay more to exchange money at the airport.

One of the things that surprised us was that it is important to always know a few words in the local language before you travel. This is important because you can't assume that people always know English . If you are not in a tourist site, they might not be able to help you.

Of course, there's Google Translate. But, it's better to know some words yourself. If you don't have power on your phone, then you can't use Google Translate.
