Assalamualaikum. Welcome to Urdu top words and our today’s lesson is Top 10 Ways to Prepare Your Travel.”
So let’s get started.
اپنی منزل کا انتخاب کرنا
(Apni manzil ka intekhab karna)
"to choose your destination"
چھٹیوں کے لئے اپنی منزل کا انتخاب کریں.
(Chuttion ky liye apni manzil ka intekhab karein.)
"Choose your destination for the holidays."
Guys, be very careful when you are choosing a destination because you will be spending your vacations and you should really do a bit of research that how much time do you need and what kind of clothes do you need. For example, if you are visiting in summer, so the areas of Punjab are really hot in summers but if you are visiting in summers but the north side of Pakistan, it’s cold. You have to make preparations accordingly. So please do your research before you choose a holiday destination for yourself.
ایک گائیڈ بک خریدنا
(Aik guide book khareedna)
"to buy a guidebook"
سفر پر جانے سے پہلےایک گائیڈ بک خریدیں.
(Safar per janay say pehlay aik guide book khareedein.)
"Buy a guidebook before traveling."
Well, I think it’s one of the most logical things to do. Of course in the age of the internet, people tend to Google everything and they want to read blogs and peoples reviews and watch YouTube videos to know more about traveling to a certain part of the region they are visiting but I think it would be advisable for at least Pakistan, you should buy some really good guidebooks. They would be more detailed and they can give you more accurate information in terms of hotels and their numbers because I don’t think we really have an organized platform especially for booking hotels. So, it would be a better idea to buy a guidebook at least for Pakistan.
پیسے بچانا
(paisay bachana)
"to save money"
آنے والے وقت کے لیے پیسے بچائیں.
(Anay walay waqt ky liye paisay bachaein.)
"Save money for the time to come."
Well, I guess this is one of the tips that I give to many people for traveling. They always save money not just for traveling but also when you are traveling, you don’t have to be really extravagant. I mean, of course, it depends upon people’s preferences on how they like to travel but me as a traveller, and I am a traveller. I tend to take two holidays in a year and visit two new places every year. So I am an extremely cheap traveller and I tend to save money on everything I can. Only I think I spend most of my money when I am traveling is on food because I have a thing for food. I love food.
اخراجات کی تحقیق کرنا
(Akhrajaat ki tehqeeq karna)
"to research the costs"
سفر پر جانے سے پہلےاخراجات کی تحقیق کریں.
(Safar per janay say pehlay akhrajaat ki tehqeeq karein.)
"Research the costs before traveling. "
Guys, this one is very important. You really should know when you are traveling that how much cash you would be expected to spend. And I think in Pakistan, a trip can be done like really cheap because of the currency I think devaluation and also that in Pakistan, everything is cheap because we are still a developing country. So it shouldn’t be a problem. In the big cities, we do have lots and lots of currency exchange and they give you a good rate I would say. We don’t have any kind of taxes when you are changing your currency into Pakistani rupees and I think that’s a huge pro for travellers.
چھٹی کے لیے درخواست دینا
(Chutti ky liye darkhwast dena)
"to request vacation time"
میں نے چھٹی کے لیے درخواست دی ہے.
(Mein nay chutti ky liye darkhwast di hai.)
"I have requested the vacation time."
I think it’s pretty common in Pakistan that we can take vacation time but I don’t think we have a trend. You know what I mean? I mean, I don’t think many people take vacations for vacations. They might take vacations for some personal issues like maternity leave or parents are sick but I think very few people have that kind of trend in the family that they take vacations for going on a vacation. So it’s kind of different and I think it’s because of the culture.
رہنے کی جگہیں بک کرنا
(Rehnay ki jaghein book karna)
"to book accommodations"
سفر پر جانے سے پہلے رہنے کی جگہیں بک کریں.
(Safar per janay say pehlay rehnay ki jaghein book karein.)
"Before traveling, book the accommodations."
We do have some companies in Pakistan which give packages to different tourists and they do everything for them. But I am really sorry to say that if you are a solo traveller or you are a traveller who is in the habit of booking everything by themselves, it would be a hindrance because you wouldn’t find any website which would give you the availability of hotels and days that you can book online. So yeah, but as I said, I don’t think it is really difficult. So once you reach Pakistan, I think it will be easy for you to get a hotel or something.
اپنے پاسپورٹ کی تجدید کرنا
(Apnay passport ki tajdeed karna)
"to renew your passport"
پاکستان میں اپنے پاسپورٹ کی تجدید کرنا بہت مشکل ہے.
(Pakistan mei apnay passport ki tajdeed karna mushkil hai.)
“It is very difficult to renew your passport in Pakistan.”
Well, I don’t completely agree with because I think we have the laws and we have passport offices but only thing would be I think getting in a line and long wait time but apart from that, I don’t see there is any difficulty when you go for renewing your passport.
"to pack"
اپنا سامان باندهیں.
(Apna samaan bandhein.) "Pack your luggage."
It’s pretty simple phrase that you can use for packing up any kind of thing, may it be food, may it be your clothes. Any kind of travel luggage. This sentence would sum up all of them.
سفری بیمہ خریدنا
(Safari beema khareedna)
"to buy travel insurance"
میں سفری بیمہ خریدنا چاہتا ہوں.
(Mein safari beema khareedna chahta hun.)
"I want to buy travel insurance."
There are many companies in Pakistan who offer travel insurance. I think when you are dealing with such kind of companies, they are professional and they do give you lots of information but as a customer, I would say that before buying any kind of insurance, just make sure that you went through everything and that there are no hidden charges attached with your insurance. Just be careful about that part.
ویزا حاصل کرنا
(Visa hasil karna)
"to get a visa"
جاپان کا ویزا حاصل کرنا مشکل ہے.
(Pakistan ka visa hasil karna mushkil hai.)
"It is difficult to get a visa to Pakistan."
I think if you have proper work documents and you have everything in order, it wouldn’t be really difficult for you and it shouldn’t keep you from applying. So, have safe travels and enjoy your trip to Pakistan.
