Using Google Maps

If your international data roaming pack is not active, use the hotel wifi system to plot out a route you want to walk on that particular day. Take a screen shot of the maps to be zoomed and used later on. It is the best way to work around.

The Passport Exemption

The expiration date on the passport can actually be quite deceiving. Irrespective of the date you are traveling in cheap flights, the U. S. consider the expiry date printed inside the passport cover. However, many other countries would deny your entry if your passport is expiring in less than six months from the date of travel.

If you are a frequent traveler, make sure that you renew your passport about nine months before its expiration date.
