HOW TO TRAVEL 5SOS-STYLE!
• DO make In-N-Out Burger a destination.
“Their milk shakes are sent from God,” says Michael.
• DON’T pick up slang.
“When I’m in L.A. for more than a few days, ‘super dope’ always ends up being a part of my vocabulary,” says Ashton. “It’s awful.”
• DO test out new things.
“I tried Snapple for the first time yesterday,” Calum said recently. “So peachy.”
• DON’T just visit major cities.
“The cool thing is that we’ve stopped in the weirdest places,” says Luke. “Like a really small town where there’s a guy sitting with his dog next to a railway and nothing else.”
• DO bring your own H2O.
“Hotels only serve water with lemon, and quite frankly I’m sick of it,” says Luke.
• DON’T scoff at airport food.
“The Mexican at the Dallas airport is the best Mexican food in the world,” says Ashton.
• DO listen to local bands.
“Listening to the Proclaimers was a great way to enter the Highlands,” says Calum. “Hello, Scotland.”
• DON’T forget folks at home.
When Ashton’s mom sent a photo of the Sydney sunset, he shared it on Twitter, saying, “It’s the sky above our house back home. I miss it and the people under it.”
