Personal travel planner – How to plan your travels correctly

This week I want to take you with me how I plan my travels beforehand and how I plan the itinerary on the trip itself to make the most out of it and making sure that I don’t forget a THING.

Travel wishlist & planner

The first thing I do for as long as I can remember is putting all the trips I want to make on my wishlist. And I don’t just mean the name of the destination..

  • The destination
  • The reason why I want to go there
  • The things that I would want to do while I’m there
  • How much money I would need in order to make that happen

This is what I call a proper wishlist. It’s not just a “oh, I would like to go there”. No. It’s well thought out. Why do you want to go there? What will it cost? What do you want to do there? How much time do you need for that?

And then, when the time is there.. You can plan that trip!

By the time that you can plan the trip that has been on your wishlist for a while and researching the things that you would like to do there, maybe your why has become a different one. So stand still and think for a moment.. “What is the reason that I really want to go and plan this trip and why not one of the other trips?”

Then it’s time to really start the planning in the part of my personal travel planner:

  • What dates am I going?
  • Do I have a budget? If yes, what is it?
  • Where will I stay?
  • What are the things that I really have to do/see before I leave?
  • What restaurant recommendations are there?
  • What are the souvenirs that I would like to bring back home?

The preparation has began and with that, also the cleaning and packing checklist before I actually leave.

Travel itinerary

The thing that I absolutely am taking with me on the trip is my travel itinerary. This is my absolute favourite one pager on a trip. What I have on my Travel Itinerary:

  • A list with the certain day, what activity I have planned at what time and what the price is
  • A place where I can rate the activity, because if I do that afterwards it’s not so fresh in my mind anymore and I forget things
  • The collected souvenirs

This is an amazing overview that I have during my trip, so that I don’t forget anything.

Good news! I’m not a monster, so if you would like a free copy of this travel itinerary that I personally use, you can get it here!
