"When something good happens, travel to celebrate. If something bad happens, travel to forget. If nothing happens, travel to make something happen"

How to plan for your next trip

As we started out planning fro every trip, we listed all our resources that assisted us to plan, budget and fly to our destinations. 

So if you feel that you want to plan your own trip, feel free to do your own research and browse through our resources to do thorough planning.

Pre-trip Planning

Do research on your planned destination

I know this is very difficult since you might not know where to start. Well lets just start!

Do research on the weather. This will determine the best time of year to visit your destination according to your weather preference. Remember that rainy and dry season might not seems like a good time, but it still makes beautiful photos, and it is low season therefore you might book top class accommodation at a discounted rate.

Do research on the Culture. This will indicate to you if you will be comfortable amongst the people of your intended country. You might want to find out more about their religion, table manners all the way through to the way you say hallo and goodbye. 

This will give you a good indication if you can adapt to the culture  and customs. If so you know that you are on the right track and you can continue your research on that specific country.

Great Travel Blogs

As you will be doing your research you will come across some amazing inspirational travel blogs.

Wandering Earl

In 1999, Derek left the United States for a three-month, post-graduation trip to Asia. The idea was to backpack around Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam and then return home. However that adventure is still going on today. It’s now been over 18 years of nonstop travel and Derek has visited 100+ countries, sharing his experiences & thoughts on a wonderful travel blog called Wandering Earl.
