Always take in consideration that each country to be visited might have a different set of requirements to enter depending on your citizenship. Often this means getting a visa, though some countries allow you to get it upon arrival, and others just might require some sort of proof of lodging or return flight, or maybe just a vaccination certificate.

So always make sure you check with local authorities, so that you don’t get any surprises once your trip has started. Embassies and consulates are also a great source of information for this, and of course hitting travel forums will always help.
