Trip planning tips- How do you ensure that next trip?
So I have a question for you. If you are like me, you love to travel but are not always on the road. You probably have a day job or a high-powered career which sucks most of your time. When you are not flat-out at work, maybe you daydream about your next trip or read a blog post about some incredible far-flung destination you would love to get to ONE DAY!
Then what happens? You get a phone call or have to go in to a meeting, or get distracted in some way. Before you know it, months have gone by and you haven’t been on that trip or even looked into it again. Does this sound familiar? I have done it before. Now my wife and I play a little trick on ourselves to make sure we don’t get caught up and actually go on holiday to that dream destination!
Our trick is this:
As soon as you arrive home from your last holiday, sit down and work out where you want to go next.
Once you decide, book your holidays with your boss.
Thirdly, go to your travel agent and book the plane ticket!
While these steps may seem basic, it is amazing how well they work. Once these things are done, guess what? You’re going on that holiday! There is no chance of getting caught up. No chance of saying I can’t afford it. If the ticket is paid for you are going whether you can afford a large hotel or a backpackers. In the end, you will be in that dream destination and that’s the important thing right?
This is the way I make sure I get to that ‘far flung’ dream destination now and not when I’m 80. So my question to you is:
What tricks or tips do you have to ensure you get to tha next holiday destination and don’t get caught up in the rat race?
Also, let me know your next destination. I want to hear all about the next great travel spot!
