If you are planning your dream trip probably you have already gathered information about the place you are travelling
to. However, have you made a list of all the stuff you need to take with you? Writing down a ‘to-do’ list is always a good start, and this way you will be sure that nothing is left at home.
1. Plan! plan! plan! and decide where you want to go.
Defining where you want to go sets a goal to work toward. A lot of people talk vaguely about travel. They never say where they are going, just that they are going. Picking a destination is immensely important, as it gives you a definite goal. It’s a lot easier to mentally get behind “I am going to Paris” than “I’m going to Europe” or “I’m going somewhere.” Not only will your trip become more concrete for you and easier to commit to, but it will make planning easier as well…because you know what to work towards.
2. Pack your bags properly.
Packing for a trip is much easier when you plan ahead. As you plan your trip, you can determine what you need to take with you by looking at the weather, location, and activities planned. It also helps to make sure that you have a sturdy bag that fits your basic needs. No matter what bag you bring, you can make the most out of it by packing carefully to optimize your space. Be sure to include toiletries, medications and valuables such as jewelry in a separate traveling case
3. Check your passport.
Access the Online Passport Status System to check your application status.
4. Download offline maps.
If you're going where the Internet is slow, mobile data is expensive, or you can't get online, you can save an area from Google Maps to your phone or tablet and use it when you're offline.
5. And yeah be flexible.
we have absolutely not let our work schedules hold us back from travelling
(you already know this if you follow me on social media). Sure we have to work around the times of year that are best for our employers and sure we can’t spend quite as much time as we might like in each place, but we have made it work.
