Planning a Perfect Vacation
In today’s fast-paced world, a good vacation is not a mere break from your daily routine, but an essential one. Even a short trip can psychologically recharge allowing us to get back to routine with greater emotional clarity.
As much as we all like going on vacation, planning isn’t always simple. Here are a few steps on how to plan the perfect holiday:
- 1. Create a list of destinations you want to travel
- The idea here is to create a list so you don’t have to start all over every time you want to go on a vacation. This could be all the places you would want to visit over the next 6-12months. Think of different things you may want to do – spend time with nature, explore a new city, spend time with family/friends, or relax all the way through – and choose a set of destinations with those in mind. Save this list, and don’t hesitate to modify it as time goes by.
- 2. Pick a time to travel & destination
- Based on the time of the year, and the type of vacation you want to take – you can now decide which of the destinations are better suited at a given time. For example, spring and fall are great for outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and camping, while certain tropical destinations are better suited in the winter months. Also, take into account how long you want to take a break.
- 3. Make reservations
- Now that you have time and destination finalized, you will want to start looking for flight tickets. When choosing a place to stay, you will want to consider the type of stay (hotel vs Airbnb), location (closer to beach or city center, etc.), and budget (5-star vs 4-star, etc). Make sure you decide on needing a car reservation as well. For any of these, booking ahead is always recommended.
- 4. Plan your activities
- It is essential to plan your activities ahead of time if you want to make the most of your vacation. Based on the activities available at the destination and your interests, make sure you do have a list of activities you want to do. Now, based on the availability and schedule of events each day (do account for lunch/dinner, etc.), you can plan your activities. Note that based on weather, you may have to slightly adjust your itinerary.
