We can all likely agree on one thing, with most people often wishing for more time, this is maybe more of an answer to those wishes than we bargained for. During this time of sheltering in place, the weekend to-do list may be a little shorter for you than it was a month ago. Well, now that you have a little more downtime, a great daydream exercise, especially for travelers, is to prepare for re-entry into the world.
Here are the Top 5 Tips on planning for your next getaway. Feast your eyes on images of the world and let the endorphins rush as you plan for your in-person appearance at your next destination:
- Order a travel book – www.amazon.com has an incredible assortment of travel aid books both Fodor's and Lonely Planet publish fabulous books about travel to destinations all over the world. What a way to not only expand your mind and wealth of knowledge culture, but this exercise can expand your travel plans to places you didn't even think about prior to checking it out.
- Actually take the time to read it – It is easy to be "busy" while we are all adjusting to a new norm. Homeschooling, working from home and many other adjustments have us in a bit of a tailspin. It is so important to take time to step away from reality a bit and immerse yourself into something that rejuvenates your spirit. Whether it be yoga, a good fiction novel, or a travel book. Make the time!
- Search destinations online - Destination websites not only have incredible footage of their property, they also have valuable information that will allow you to make comparisons while you have a little down time. That way, when airfares are still low, and you know you are free to roam again, you can book with confidence knowing you did your homework.
- Talk about your plans - Now is the time to be brainstorming with your travel buddy or evaluating your choices in your mind. Talk about the types of adventures you wish to enjoy, how much rest and relaxation you need during your time and what bucket list agenda you wish to check off.
- Check Airfare and Travel News Often – Once we are free to travel the globe again, your best time to book will be just as the opportunity is opened again and when airfares are competitive. Be prepared so that when the time is right, you can strike out for your next journey around this incredible planet!
We hope that this simple list allows you to take some much-needed mental escape and globe-trot a bit in your mind. Until we meet again, sending you island vibes and well wishes!
We are here when you are ready to travel again. The world will once again be connected and we can't wait to #seeyouinthesun!
