“Life is a book and those who don’t travel only read the first page.” – St. Augustine
How often have you looked at photos of the Eiffel Tower, Times Square, or the Hollywood Bridge, and feel a huge enthusiasm for the possibility of getting to know those places one day?
Fortunately with the development of new transport facilities, were also increased the number of traveling options and consequently the prices have been reduced. Although adjustment still have to be made in the sector in order to make this experience accessible to everyone, today things are really easier, and the trip to the country of your dreams may be closer than ever before.
Below we will mention five steps that will surely help you to better plan the trip of your dreams!
#1. Know your finances
Even though we often think that our finances can determine our vacations, it is not so… Finances can even influence, but they never determine anything.
It is important that before you even choose the destination, you know how much you are willing to spend and how long it would take to achieve this goal.
#2. Vacation type
Once you know exactly how much you would be willing to spend, it’s time to decide on the type of vacation that fits better to your budget, and even your personality, because the type of vacation also depends on your profile.
This is a kind of vacation that doesn’t necessarily mean that you will spend the vacation saving or that you will be reserved to the entertainment options available. It is actually almost the opposite. This is the kind of journey made when you want to travel to shop, in search of more affordable items than where you stay.
For those of you who like to stir the skeleton in parties and festivals – this is always the top choice. At the end of the day there is nothing better than knowing new places, and at the same time spice up your social life.
For those who want to visit a place with a totally different their culture. Enjoy a different cuisine, visit historical sites, live with different people, learn about their habits and enrich their social experience.
This is a vacation to places that help us to feel closer to the nature. An adventure vacation needs not to be just a visit to a volcanic island or something from another world. Camps, visits to new forests or beaches, bike trips, etc… The options are endless.
Okay it is time to know where you are going. I bet you thought that this would be one of the first steps – but choosing the destination before you know your finances or the type of vacation you want can ruin all your plans.
#4. Trip Script
Now with the destination in mind, it’s time to think about the activities to be carried out, the means of transport to be used and everything that you will need along the way.
Now that you know where you’re going and what you will be doing, it’s time to calculate the costs. Firstly choose the departure date, the length of your stay at the destination, the number of people you’re going with, and then just pick up the script and calculate all costs.
Remember to always consider finances first, then the type of vacation, the destination, the trip script, lastly just calculate the all costs and enjoy your vacation!
