As promised, here is the beginning of series of posts to help you plan and successfully go on a great adventure!
So you want to travel, but where do you begin? I think a lot of people have this idea that you have to begin with price and what you can or cannot afford; while this is important, it's so not true. I like to begin with where I want to go and work from there.
This is my theory, go where you are able to go now. Yes, Europe is freakin' rad, but you can go there at anytime. When you are 80 years old Europe will still be an option, but ice fishing in Wisconsin, going on a safari in Africa or hiking South America? Probably not. So start searching high and low until you find an exciting place that suits your fancy.
I have found places that I want to go to through Netflix documentaries, travel tour sights, books, people, TV, and just randomly on the internet.
Some sights I like to use to find neat places include:
Now that you have some ideas of adventures you'd like to have you can start creating a list of places you want to go to and start reading up on them a little bit. What is that place known for? What do you have to do there? Start figuring that out and check back in a little bit and we will start planning your trip!!
Found some places you really want to travel to? Let me know about them down in the comments below!
