Final Arrangements Before Takeoff

We have talked about how you have to decide where and when you have to travel so as to make the experience memorable; getting everything you need in place and careful planning being essential.

Ask yourself what you'd like to get out of your time away. If you need a break from your hectic schedule, consider planning a relaxing beach vacation. If you are going crazy with boredom, look into an adventure vacation. Become one with nature by visiting a park, national zoo or gain new perspective by visiting a country halfway across the globe; like visiting the Titanic Beach Lara in Turkey.

You can ask colleagues, friends and family about places they've been. They may have some great recommendations and insights on what to do, where to stay, and what to eat.


Set a budget

Do a research regarding the cost of the activities that interest you; look up the entrance fee to places you’d love to see or the price of a ticket to a show. The more exact you can be with costs, the better you can plan your trip.

If your plans exceed your budget, you may need to apply for a quick loan. Stay at a hostel instead of a hotel or skip the four-star restaurant.

Being flexible will make it easier to stick to your budget. If you don’t know how to get by you can visit our post on how to create a budget

Don't forget to look up the money conversion rate if you're going abroad and work that into your budget.


Make a packing list

Get proper information as regards the weather at your destination for the time of year you are traveling. Pick basic clothes that coordinate so you can mix and match over the course of your trip.

If you are flying, remember the safety restrictions. Make sure you pack any medications you take and that you have enough for your entire trip, plus a little extra.

Other must-haves: a light rain jacket, a back-up battery for your phone or other electronics, something to read or pass the time on flights and bus rides.

Keep a journal. You may think you'll remember every amazing moment of your trip, but chances are you'll be having so many new experiences it may be hard to keep track of it all.

Consider the weather. It might be snowing outside, raining cats and dogs, windy, or it might be as hot as the desert sun. Well, it all depends on the weather, and so the type of weather is the type of weather activity you'll be doing.


Find out if you need a visa

Some countries need visitors to attain a travel visa to enter the country. As with your passport, you should apply well in advance, as it could take days or weeks to process.

You may need to arrange your hotel accommodations before applying for a visa and be asked to present the address and contact information when you apply.


Learn the language

Even a few key phrases – “hello," "thank you," "excuse me," "where is the bathroom?" – can go a long way. Often people will be more willing to help you if you make an effort to speak their language. Make sure you record when trying to communicate with the locals. This will help when you travel back and go over your activities.

English is common as a second language in many countries, but you should never assume everyone will be fluent.



Travelling is a fun way to learn about other cultures and have your perspectives broaden about things in life. Before you set out to travel, make sure you have everything that you will need to make it a pleasurable adventure.
