Others recommended buying a compass.
-Plan your trip well: Many users insisted on the fact that you need to take the time before visiting a place, to prepare your itinerary and know what is worth visiting.

On the other hand, some users remembered the old saying “there's no arguing about tastes".
-Don't take /r/travel too seriously: they'll drive you crazy and you won't learn much, with the exception of the GPS tip...
