Geography and weather

When planning your international travel, research the environment you will encounter.  Upon arrival, you will immediately experience the impacts of your destination’s geography and weather.  Are you traveling to a location at a very high altitude?  Changes in altitude can impact your health.  Is the area prone to earthquakes, hurricanes or other natural disasters?  Research this information ahead of time so you can plan accordingly. 

The type of clothing you pack will depend on the climate of your destination(s).  Check the monthly average temperatures/rainfall for your destination(s) to get an idea of what kind of weather you should expect during your time abroad.  Keep in mind that seasons are different in the southern hemisphere.
