When it comes to taking a vacation it is all about location location location. You have worked hard, scrimped and saved. Now is time to treat yourself to the vacation of a lifetime. Sometimes the most difficult part about planning a vacation is choosing where to go. Trying to determine just one location is extremely difficult when there are so many to choose from. Every week I get at least one new free travel brochure in the mail. The different travel packages look great. However, I have always wanted to switch up the locations to design my personal vacation package. So, that is exactly what I did.
Using the information from the free travel guide I received, I designed my dream vacation. When you plan your personalized vacation you have the license to hand picked each destination. You can specify the number days you will spend in each location. You get to select where you stay. If you want to stay in five star hotel or stay in a motel, the choice is yours to make. Planning your dream vacation is easier than you think.
Before the Internet, you would have needed to take your free travel guide to a travel agency to design your dream vacation. However, now all you need to know are a few key websites. When planning your dream vacation here are a few steps you may want to follow:
The first step is to determine where you want to go. If, you want to visit more than one location make sure each destination geographically make sense. Trying to plan a vacation a two week vacation that includes Italy and Australia (travel time between the two is a 22 hour flight), does not geographically makes sense. Spending more than four to six hours traveling between destinations is normally considered a waste of your vacation time.
The second step is to specify the number of days you will be away. Knowing how long you intend on being away will allow you specify the number of days you can spend in each destination.
The third step will be to book your hotel. You can find a hotel listing online under your destinations main website. There are also hotel website that offer discount pricing. Either website will should provide a comprehensive description of the hotels in the area.
If, you follow the above steps you be on your way to having the time of your life. Now the only thing you will need to think about is what to do while you are on vacation.
