I love to travel. Anytime, anywhere.

If my life could be a holiday, I would do it! Thoughts of a travel writer or blogger have come to mind on a few occasions.

With all that said, there are a few ways to travel- budget, mid-range, expensive.

Well I like a bit of all it. I think rather than the way to travel, it is traveling smart. A fellow bloggers asked me for my top travel tips for planning a vacation, so thought I would share:

Top tips to planning your next vacation!

Plan ahead– book flights early, do the research, hunt down good deals, obtain visas and passport.

Research– do your research. Yes it does take time but it will save you money. Take a look at Expedia.com, kayak.com or priceline.com.

Lonely planet guide– check out the guide for the area you are traveling, the guide has great ideas, maps and tourist information.

Talk to friends– find out what you can from people who have been to the destination. Ask friends, family, read travel blogs and websites.

Pack Light– pack your bag and then half it. We have a tendency to over pack. So make sure you pack smart and light. Always pack a spare pair of undies, phone charger and toothbrush in your carry on bag in case your luggage gets lost.

Time– make sure you allow time for your travel- to get to the airport, go through security and check in. It takes longer than you think.

Tourist centre– on arrival make your way to a tourist bureau. Get maps, information and guides to your area. Ask questions and get the lay of the land. You can never have too much information.

So go out and start planning your next vacation. There is a whole wide world to go and explore.


“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard
