How To: Plan the Ultimate Dream Vacation
Alright, babes! We are SO excited for this week’s blog because it involves one of our favorite words… vacation! Woo hoo! Who doesn’t love a dream getaway, away from the real world full of responsibility and obligations? Whether you’re getting ready for an upcoming holiday trip, or planning ahead for a summer escape, this one’s for you, babe!
1. Destination Dreamy
What’s on your travel bucket list? Relaxing on the beach in Fiji, or backpacking in Machu Picchu? Ooh, shopping the streets of Paris sounds amazing! Or keep it casual with a roadtrip with your best friends and still have the time of your life! Why not decide that NOW is the time to plan and take that vacation you’ve only ever dreamed of. It’s not too late, and it can be the right time if you make it! Work ahead and prioritize, you might be amazed at what can happen! 2020, we’re coming for you.
2. Your favorite travel mate!
Find someone who is just as excited as you to travel! Make sure to pick someone you know won’t get sick of after a week (or however long) together! Whether it’s your significant other, best pals, or even yourself, who you travel with can make or break your vacation!
3. Budget Ahead
Once you’ve picked out your destination, it’s time to start saving! It’s best to overestimate the total cost of your vacation so that you won’t be stressed about running low on $ while on your trip! Flights, gas, hotels, food, fun activities, and extra shopping money are the basics to consider! You don’t have to spend thousands to have a grand vacation! If you don’t want to shell out for an expensive hotel, hostels are a popular, cheaper option and an amazing way to meet other tourists!
4. Book that flight!
It’s best to watch flight prices ahead of time to help you determine when you want to go and which airline to choose! Sites like Google Flights and Skyscanner are a total life saver! They literally do all the work for you. Also, make sure you’re booking during a season you desire! Don’t forget that Australia has opposite seasons from us! Once you’re officially booked, get excited because one of the hardest parts is over!
Now that the flight is official, it’s time to get into the details of the trip! Where are you sleeping and what activities do you NEED to do? Visit the Eiffel Tower? Eat gelato in Italy? You definitely don’t need an hourly itinerary set up, I mean unless you want to! Having a general idea of what you’ll do each day will make your actual trip so much more efficient! Once you’re in your dream destination, you definitely don’t want to waste time trying to decide what to do instead of actually doing it!
6. The best part… food!
If you love food just as much as we do, then you know this is the best part of traveling! One of the easiest ways to immerse yourself in another culture is through the cuisine. Scope out the restaurants that the natives love and you’re almost guaranteed to have an amazing meal! Try something new and live your absolute best life, babe!
Are you feeling inspired to take that dream vacation yet? We definitely are, and hopefully you can finally treat yourself to the getaway of a lifetime!
