So with all the tips that we’ve provided in this article, we hope that you can benefit from all the lessons that we’ve learned in our travels. Even with all the rental car dramas that we had faced over the years, the priceless moments that we’ve shared far outweighed all the not-so-great moments along the way. Indeed, while it can be argued that independent self-touring, which often involves an international car rental, can be considered too much trouble, there’s no denying that this kind of travel is far more rewarding and immersive (not to mention more efficient time wise) than what most people get to experience without this freedom. Think of it like a risk versus reward equation, where the more you put yourself out there into the unfamiliar and unknown, the more you stand to learn and experience in the end.
If you get a chance to see how many places we’ve been by looking through our website, then you have a pretty good idea of how liberating immersive adventure travel (through waterfalling) can be.
