Let’s say now you’ve made the solid decision to travel and save money; now it’s time to ask yourself the below questions to help you shape the actual plan of your trip. How you structure it solely depends on what you want. Basic questions:
- How long will I go (will determine how far you want to travel)?
- How much am I willing to spend (will determine your destination)?
- Which city/country(ies) do I want to visit?
- What do I want to see and do?
Once you answer these questions, and feel you know what you want to do, you’re ready to plan! However, I want to emphasize— plan when you are ready. The only way you will fully enjoy your travels is by not forcing anything. Here we go!
Choosing a Destination
After traveling for so long, one of the best methods I have found for choosing a destination is simply following my intuition. I have intuitively asked myself these questions: which country and/or city do I think would make me feel good at the moment, and in turn, that I will appreciate? In my current self, which place am I ready to know more about? What are my intentions and/or purpose in this place?
