10 Steps to a Perfect Vacation


3. Planning is Fun Too

You’ve heard the expression, life is about the journey, not the destination. While your travel plans are ultimately about enjoying the destination, the journey to get there is meant to be enjoyed as well. What this means is that you should embrace the planning phase; use this time to dream and to research. The anticipation of your awesome trip is a big part of the fun, and can sometimes last longer than the vacation itself, so don’t deny yourself that opportunity.

4. Travel Detective

Don’t underestimate the value of knowing in detail where you are going. What’s the currency? What kind of transportation is available to you? Where is your hotel in relation to the airport and/or other attractions? Is your destination safe, or are there areas that are recommended to avoid? Are there religious or cultural events that might cause closures of some things during your visit? What kind of excursions, tours or leisure opportunities are there? It helps to nail down as much info as you can before you go- so that you minimize any unpleasant surprises.
