How NOT to Plan Your Vacation!

If you find yourself saying “I need a vacation from my vacation”, chances are you’ve made one of these three mistakes…

Overpacking your itinerary:

I get it. You want to see as much as possible on your vacation. But cramming your schedule full of tours and activities will leave you exhausted. It’s hard to enjoy your day when your feet are aching and all you want to do is sleep. Pick one tour per day and save the rest of your time for unexpected adventures! Remember: you can always come back!

Constantly changing locations:

“But it’s only a five hour train ride!” Actually, it’s not. It’s closer to 8 hours. Factor in the time it takes to pack up, check out of your hotel, head to the train station, the train ride, and getting to your new hotel in your new city. Constantly changing locations, regardless of how close the new city or country seems, means days of travel instead of days that could be spent lounging on your terrace with a glass of champagne or exploring that museum you’ve heard about. Choose a few key destinations and truly immerse yourself in the local culture! 

Planning procrastination:

If you’re waiting until the month before your departure to start planning your vacation, you’re making a mistake. Not only will you start to feel the stress and chaos of last minute planning, you’ll miss out on a whole host of opportunities and hotel availability. Planning a vacation takes a lot of time and research. Save yourself the stress and talk to your trusted travel advisor about your vacation goals.
