For many people the thought of spring breaks is something that gives them that feeling of finally winter is over and let's get out and do something. College students especially find this as a time to be able to unwind, get together with some close friends and go somewhere to let off some steam and have a a lot of fun. But having too much fun can sometimes come with trouble, so here are a few things that might help to ensure that you not only have a fun packed spring break but you stay safe and out of trouble at the same time.
Wherever you are planning on going, especially if you have never been there, it is an excellent idea for you to do some research to see what their local laws are, especially if you are planning on going to a different country. Age limits for drinking alcohol varies and their drug laws can vary from minor infractions to big time prison time. So be very careful. The best advice is stay away from drugs and alcohol and you won't have any worries.
If you are planning your holidays to a different country it's also important that you learn a little something about the culture of the locals. You should also find out if there are any major social issues that the country might be in the middle of. Major social issues could really end your fun vacation in a heartbeat.
No matter where you are going, don't go around flaunting a lot money, expensive jewelry or even really expensive clothes. And as much as you might hate it consider leaving all of your expensive high tech toys at home, and that means your iPhone. Consider getting an inexpensive cell phone that you can buy prepaid minutes for instead.
Always make sure that no matter where you go, even if it's during the day that you always have someone with you. This is of course very important at night. Never visit bars or night clubs at night completely alone. Always stay together no matter what is going on.
Make sure that when you are on your trip that you respect other people. Try not to be extremely loud or rude in front of other people, especially strangers. Remember just because you are on spring break does not mean the person next to you is. Hotels and motels will kick you out without hesitation if you get too rowdy and out of control.
More than likely since you are coming out from under the darkness of winter you are going to be headed for someplace that has lots of sun. Remember that you are going there with winter skin so it's a good idea to take lots of sunscreen with you. The last thing you want is to have your trip ruined because you are so sunburned that you can barely move.
