3 Steps To The Perfect Travel Plan.

Three steps? That’s it?  That’s all it takes for the perfect travel plan? I bet you think I’m kidding you!  Nope, that’s it! It boils down to just 3 steps. Now, I’m not going to say these will be easy (although they could be), or fast (but I’ve packed & been on a train in 1.5 hours – with kids!) But, there really is just three steps to achieving the trip of your dreams. Dream. Plan. Go! That’s it! I took you down the path of travel dreaming recently, that’s the first step. Step 2 is all about the travel plan. 


As you begin to dream, you answer the “Why” questions of your travel plan. Travel dreams start taking shape. Excitement builds and you find yourself considering vacation time and airline tickets. Your dream has come alive! It has focus & purpose and you are one step closer to it’s reality.

Choose A Destination

Choosing a destination is often closely related to why you want to travel. It can also be as simple as:
“Wherever it’s affordable.”
“Wherever I can see giraffes in the wild.”
“Wherever I can learn about the ancient civilizations.”
“Wherever I can find the fastest rollercoaster.”

Begin to think about your personal goals for travel, you will refine your focus and pinpoint the passion inside.

Why Travel?

Travel is an adventure. Whether you’re traveling for business, on a one-week family holiday, or have sold everything to pursue a life on the road, traveling can make you a happier person by building self-confidence, providing new experiences and memories, breaking routine and allowing you to meet people from all over the world. It starts with a dream, and a passion to go. The Dream. Plan. Go!
