While some of us are quite flexible in choosing our next travel destination, its not the same for everyone. Many prefer investing extra time and thought into this effort as it can greatly improve their happiness and overall experience. If you are one of them, here are a few simple things you need to keep in mind before you sit down to draft your plan.
Do Not Ignore the “WHY?”
“Why am I travelling?” This should be the first question at the top of mind when sitting down to decide your next destination. However you might be surprised to know that this is the question ignored by most travellers. Knowing the “Why” of your travel is extremely important in helping you to commit to your vacation plan such that you don’t end up creating a blunder at the last moment.
Your purpose of travel plays a major role in your decision, whether it be for a few amazing pictures you can flaunt for years to come, or to take some time out with your family.
Never Forget Whom You Are Travelling With
The destination you want to visit during your next vacation depends substantially on your travel companions, and varies accordingly.
For instance, travelling solo is all about exploring new places bringing out the “adventurer” in you. Whereas when you travel with your family, you carry a lot more responsibilities like finding a vacation rental or a hotel for accommodation, planning the entire trip under a budget etc. When you travel as a couple, it is more about fulfilling mutual expectations that will keep each other happy.
Do Not Get Confused
No matter how hard you try, there are always more destinations you want to visit than you have time to see. And this list will keep growing the more you travel. But don’t let all the destinations running around in your mind’s eye confuse you. Recognize them, segregate them, prioritize them, then make a final list of places you want to visit.
Do Not Choose The Wrong Time
The time of the year are you travelling to a particular destination plays a vital role in the enjoyment of your vacation. While winters can be harsh in some places, it can be the best time to visit others. Figure out when are travelling, and whether you will enjoy the weather and other aspects of a particular destination before putting it down on your list.
Do Not Be “Another Sheep In The Herd”
There are places in the world where there are so many tourists that you forget why you came in the first place. On the other hand, there are a lot of other beautiful places which most tourists ignore in their travels, because they are just not as famous as their sister cities. Consider such places when you plan your next vacation. Not only do you get to witness some of the most stunning places you never knew existed, you likely won’t have to go through the trouble of long tourist queues or other such ordeals.
Your interests play a big part in dictating where you want to go on your vacation. But at the same time, do not get stressed about choosing your destination. On any given day making a list of all the pros and cons based on your options works perfectly. But if everything fails, you can always throw a dart at the map and just go for it!
