When speaking about traveling, everyone is different and enjoys different weathers, places, and views. The world is so big, beautiful, and diverse that it makes difficult to decide where to go and what to do. I consider myself as a nature lover. I always try to find the beauty in every place that I go.
I sincerely adore in the same way the hot and sunny places and the cold and snowy places. I would say that each destination has its own special thing and activities that turn every trip into an amazing experience. It really depends on what´s your favorite type of trip.
I have learned that you can make your favorite activities in every destination, it really depends on how good you make the research of the place you´re going to visit. The only problem that I find out about doing an excellent investigation is that you will want to make a lot of things and probably won´t have all the time necessary to do them all.
The step by step.
Everyone has its own process when choosing where to go, I´ll tell you my very own procedure and hope you to find it helpful.
Set a time
First of all, I think about the season and date when I want to travel, this is very important because the season is the main reason why a travel budget may go way too high and expensive. The sooner you plan your trip, the better for your wallet.
Set a budget
If you are like me, I´m sure that you want to travel and know as many places as possible, so it is very important for you to set your travel priorities in order to save money for the long-term and short-term travel plans. Keeping that in mind, be realistic and set an amount of money that you can afford.
Define your travel activities
Think about the things that you would like to do. Learning how to ski? A relaxing trip to the sea? Partying in one of the world´s biggest cities? Feeding an elephant? There are infinite options! Think about what you enjoy the most and make a list with those ideas.
Start the research
So with a budget and activities in mind, comes the finding of the perfect place. For this specific step, I want to recommend you a site named Kayak (www.kayak.com
). In this website, you´ll be able to find in the “explore” section the destination that best fits your budget. You can also do the search with the filters that it has. Trust me, this is the best resource when looking for the perfect destination.
The dreamed trip.
After using the kayak site, you´ll have a list of travel options. What I suggest now is to investigate those places. The top things to do and points of interest, of course, have to be a part of the investigation, but I always search also for the activities that I enjoy the most. Another good way of getting some extra ideas on what to do is asking to the local people for activities once you get to your destination. That´s the best way of meeting new people and getting to know more closely the culture of the places that you visit.
By following this tips, your travel will be a lot more fun, diverse and memorable. You don´t have to go to the most expensive and fancy places to have a great time, it is just about doing the right seek of adventure. And you will have the time of your life wherever you go.
