Principles: Travel

The title of this blog post was inspired by Ray Dalio's book Principles: Life and Work. These are my principles: YMMV. Most of my travel to date has been in the developed world: undoubtedly some of these principles reflect that. One criticism of the above principles is that some incur additional monetary costs, e.g. Uber versus public transit, making them less appealing to cost-sensitive travellers. Carefully consider whether the time savings of these nominally more expensive options may permit getting the same amount done in less time, permitting shorter stays. For example, the additional cost of Ubers versus public transport may well be less than the cost of an additional night in a hotel.
