Recommendations for Building an Itinerary

7 Apr

As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, I’m planning a trip to Europe later this year. I’ve only ever seen Ireland, which made things easy to plan since the country is so small. We were fortunate to cover a lot of ground in the short ten days we were there. I was proud to have taken on my first international trip with success and felt as though my itinerary worked out according to plan.

Travel-writingWhen thinking about planning a big trip, I’ve always thought the most daunting part is actually buying the plane tickets. I know then, I am fully committing to the impending adventures ahead. I’m starting to rethink that assumption and beginning to believe it’s the building the itinerary piece that’s most daunting. I’ve been diligent in my research and I’ve tried to make sure I’m not missing any vital parts of planning.

In my hours of travel research, I came upon this blog for a fellow, but more experienced traveler named Nomadic Matt. His website provides a wealth of essential information on traveling internationally. It also provides insight into what you should bring on your trip, destination guides by country, and great tips and resources to use. He even offers his expertise as a service to interested travelers planning their next journey.

A lot of building an itinerary is knowing what form of transportation you’re planning on using. Rick Steves is also another great travel guru to check out. He has a website that offers articles on what kind of transportation is more cost effective, like renting a car or taking the train. He also has packing lists (specific to the ladies), travel safety tips, and just about anything and everything travel.

I encourage anyone planning an international vacation to utilize both Matt and Rick’s websites. It allows for a lot of saved time on researching travel and really helps put the itinerary into perspective and answers lots of questions. Maybe one of these days I will have a cool website like one of them! Until then, follow my blog for more tips and everything travel.

Thank you for reading!
