Traveling - it's a lifestyle, isn't it? You have to be dedicated to lugging your position around behind you, riding on rickety old buses, and seeing some of the most god-forsaken corner of the world if you are going to get those blissful snapshot memories that will last a lifetime, right? Well, actually no that's wrong. 

You can travel without the hassle, you don't have to be so stressed and spun out by the time you go that the first five days are you just getting back to normal again, and you certainly don't have to embrace the traveler lifestyle to see the world. 

Just read on to find out everything you need to know about seeing the world without breaking a sweat. 

Book and check-in on line 

First of all, airports aren’t fun. They are big buildings stuffed full of people that are all trying to get to different places and will have no problem elbowing you out of the way in a bid to get there. So, make it easier on yourself, and book and check in for your flight online. 

Booking online can be done from your own front room. Just don't fall prey to the temptation to go round and round looking for the cheapest flight you possibly can. Instead, use a price comparison site to find a good deal. As it is really worth five hours of your life to save the money, you would make in an hour?

Also, checking in online is a good idea as then you don't have to spend 45 minutes in the queue. Meaning you actually have enough time to grab yourself a coffee and sandwich before you get on the plane. Something that is bound to ensure you are in a better mood for your flight and cause you less hassle as you won't have to buy those little inflated bags of chips and mini cans of drink on the plane.

Organized tours 

Next, to take the hassle out of travel, why not book yourself on an organized tour or cruise? These can make seeing the world very simple and stress-free because you are taken from one place of interest to another - something that means you don't have to organize your own transport, accommodation, or guides. 

It also means that in between sites you get to relax and have a good time. Especially if you are on a cruise as you will be out at sea, and can take advantage of all of the on board entertainments. 

The best thing is that organized tours and cruise don't actually have to cost much more than if you go through all of the hassles of arranging everything yourself. Just check out the offers on sites like Bolsover Cruise Club that prove it. Meaning you can cut the hassle out of your travel without emptying your bank balance.

Finding things to do 

Lastly, one of the biggest hassles when you travel can be knowing just where the best views, restaurants, and local secrets are. After all, why go all that way and then miss out on the best bits? Luckily, you don't have to, and it doesn't require you reading an entire library's worth of travel guides either. All you need to do is use a few choice travel sites to help you pick out the best recommendations for where you will be visiting. This works best if you pick sites that are already on your wavelength.

For example, sites such as Atlas Obscura, which is concerned with finding the weirdest and most obscure things to do in any given place. Meaning if you are into 200 ft stained glass installations that trace the history of human knowledge, or you want to find out how to sculpt Star Trek Characters from butter at the Iowa State Fair, you're likely to find a recommendation or two to please you here.

Then there is http://www.roadsideamerica.com. A site that is totally dedicated to all things America, In particular, the weird and wonderful world of roadside attractions that the Americans do so well. Use it to find information about where to see the largest functioning coffee machine, chocolate fountain, and gold nugget during your trip. Or check out the Cathedral of Junk, Austin, Texas; something that would definitely cause you hassle and stress if you missed it, I'm sure. 

Therefore, as you can see, traveling the world doesn't need to include a lot of stress and hassle. In fact, if you so choose you can make it more about fun and adventure by being savvy with your arrangements, and by working smarter not harder with your research.
