We all have a dream car, a dream house, a dream job, a dream girl or a boy, and also a dream vacation.
Who would not love to go surfing on the wild waves of Australia with their significant other or just a bunch of old friends? That is my preference, but we are not going to get into that in this article.
A dream vacation could be anything from taking naps in your bed to traveling the world and visiting the beautiful cities of Europe. Most people work hard for so many years so that they can afford to go on that one vacation they will remember for the rest of their lives. However, without proper planning and accurate execution, you could lose a lot of those savings, and your whole vacation can take a wrong turn.
A good plan requires full knowledge about the places you wish to visit, how to get there, helpful vacation deals, and how much money it will cost. What if the costs suddenly go out of budget? What if, for some reason, you cannot go to a specific place? Improvisations become necessary in such times, so let’s take a look at how a person can plan their dream vacation in a disciplined manner to allow him/her enjoy their days off.
Location of your Dream Vacation
Location is the most crucial part of your vacation, for which you need to plan. The places you wish to visit and the best way to travel there are better to map in advance. When you have a limited budget, it is essential to choose a feasible route that is not only cheap but enjoyable. I suggest you do thorough research on the exchange rates so you can stick to a budget and add a bit to it, if necessary.
Moreover, if you wish to stay at expensive hotels in Paris or a fancy resort in the Bahamas, then save money on traveling by taking direct flights to such places. The second factor that you should consider is the weather of the area you are going to. Various regions of the world have different weather all year round, so it is helpful to research the expected weather conditions. Failure to do this can ruin your vacation as there could be some delayed flights, or there might be an urge to stay inside the hotel.
The Best Time to Travel
I believe that the best time to travel to different parts of the world is before or after the usual summer and winter vacations. Why? It is simply better to visit your dream vacation areas when everyone else is at work, and you are there with your loved ones to have a good time.
Moreover, the prices are a bit high during standard vacation days as tourists from all over the world flood cities. Make sure to do homework on the country you are visiting to check their vacation months as they tend to differ from one region to another.
Would you like to carry huge bags everywhere you go? A smart person would say ‘no’ to this question, but if your answer is the opposite, then let me enlighten you. Packing a lot of stuff like clothes, shoes, jewelry, cosmetics, and swimsuits would require a big bag enough to carry everything.
There is a risk of losing expensive stuff while traveling as thieves are lingering in all parts of the world. What if a bag carrying all your belongings is misplaced? Making it less stressful, I advise to get a medium-sized suitcase and pack only a few clothes and other necessary stuff like a toothbrush. If the need to use other items arises, then you can always buy them just at your point of destination.
Places like Paris, Dubai, Bahamas, Vegas, and others attract a lot of tourists all year. Tickets can run out quickly, so it is important to buy flying tickets 2 or 3 weeks before you wish to leave. It will help you get a discount as well as a good seat on the plane, maybe next to a window.
For those who always plan a last-minute vacation, I only wish them luck, especially if it is during a season when everyone is traveling. Go over the flight schedules and choose a time that suits you best before buying a plane ticket. This tip will save you from getting in long lines at the airport and allow you to enjoy it.
