“Do not wait until you are dying to go on vacation. I think if I had to give you one piece of advice that would be it. We put things off. We do not mean to, but we do. We carry around the assumption that there is plenty of time to do whatever needs to be done.” Marty Cauley, Dying to go on Vacation
We always envy someone who post their vacation online enjoying the beautiful scenery away from the busy life in the city, seeing photos of places we wanted to go but ended up saying the words “maybe next time”, or having trouble picking the place on your list to spend the holidays.
Think about it, when was the last time you went on a vacation? Or do you have a list of places you haven’t go yet before the year 2018 ends? Maybe it’s the right day to plan your next travel! Remember, having your vacation at least thrice a year is a good help to relieve stress and boredom. It gives positive and fresh energy to our mind, emotion and physically.
Prior to it, you might still be confused about what to do or don’t know where to go. Don’t worry because we listed some things to consider in choosing the perfect place for your vacation.
How much time do you have?
Make sure to check your planner or calendar when is the best time and how many days can you have if you’re one of those who is always busy due to work that you can’t leave for a minute, a student who have due dates to beat, or someone who has endlessly continuous commitments. Considering the time you have will help you narrow down your list of choices. You probably don’t want to waste time traveling to your destination knowing that you only got less than a week of vacation.
Who are you traveling with?
Are you traveling with family, friends, special someone, or maybe solo? The destination you want to go might not suit with your companions and vice versa. Set a day where you can all discuss the plans and which place you’ll be settling down to go.
For example, in having a vacation with family, you need to think carefully about the safety of kids where adults can enjoy too. If your traveling as a couple, talk about ideas of activities you expect and would love to do as lovers.
How much is your budget?
You wouldn’t do all of your plans or you might have a problem with your travel if you don’t have enough budget. Think about your expenses of your choice of destination so that you’ll know if its the right place or not to take a vacation. So, bringing some extra money is safer than nothing. You can also look up for budget travel tips to save money and still have the fun that you need.
What type of vacation do you prefer?
A vacation in beaches or mountains, food trips or road trips, festivals or cultural experiences, city or countryside are the choices you might have a hard time deciding. Do you want to spend a vacation just relaxing with a nice view on your balcony or doing some extra-adventurous activities where you can vent out all your stress? However, having a balance between relaxation and adventure will make your vacation memorable and fun.
What type of weather would you like?
Would you like to go to a place with cool weather or something warm without minding the heat? Knowing the weather on your destination will also help you with choosing the right stuff you’ll be needing to bring or not. It’s better to do some early research about the weather of the day you’ll be traveling to avoid complications.
Knowing all of this will be a big help for you to decide which place you’ll be going so that your vacation will be a big success. Also, it will be better if you avoid peak seasons to save money, get wonderful services, and less traffic. Not planning for your vacation will only add stress and problem, so if you want to get away from this plan early and surely. Enjoy your vacation and always be safe!
