Travel Planning Tips

As summer approaches, we are nearing the prime time for travel. I don't know about you, but I almost always travel in the summer, because there's such a long break and the weather is always nice. I like to think of myself as an experienced traveler, so I'll be sharing some travel planning trips that I've learned during my previous travels.

Do your research. I know that this kind of goes without saying, but it's so much better to plan out where you want to go (specifically) and what you want to do ahead of time. Before you go on your trip, look up attractions and activities to do in the area that you're visiting. You can check out reviews and know exactly what you need to bring for the activity that you choose. This saves you time during your trip and you don't have to worry about stressing out about time, since everything is already planned out.
Check the weather. You should always check the weather before going on a trip so that you can pack accordingly and plan your activities around any potential weather conflict.
Plan some time to relax. When you're on a trip, it can often be stressful because you're trying to fit everything you want to do into the time period that you have. Remember that there's a difference between traveling and taking a vacation. Even if you're visiting every tourist destination and every historic landmark, you should still take some time to relax and make your trip a mix of travel and vacation. For me, it's much less stressful to have time to relax.
Check out the food. As a selective eater, I like to know exactly what kind of food there will be and what that food is made of. If you're traveling to a foreign country, the food might not be familiar. For example, when I went to Greece last summer, I had no idea what moussaka was, but thankfully I had done my research. If you research the food ahead of time, you'll know what must-try delicacies are and what to expect.
