Travel can take many forms. Whether it’s on different continents or just across the city, there’s nothing to go on a trip to refresh you, aroused and open your mind …
I don’t have a trip better than a summer trip. Maybe it’s because of reading books.
Even if you don’t share my nostalgic, romantic road trip views, there are many good reasons to take one …
Last summer, I made a five-day trip to the four states of the United States, and this summer, I’m planning a trip to Washington with two of my friends. I’m not an expert, but I learned a few things during my trips …
That’s why in today’s post I will show you how to plan and carry out the summer road trip yourself. You’ll learn.That’s what I said, let’ s start it.Let me start by not having to go far enough to make a steep road. Of course, a cross-country trip can be an unforgettable experience, but it can also be expensive, unpleasant and debilitating. You can make a big road trip due to driving to another city in your state or county.
With this, where you go, it really depends on your personal preferences. My travels to the United States, for example, are largely moving at this moment in my goal to set foot in all 50 U.S. states before I turn on 25 (for someone is curious, you can.
But on the same trip I have included my interests in literature (visit to the home of William Faulkner in Oxford, MS), food (taking samples from New Orleans, Los Angeles), and also on the open (trekking to the National Forest of St. Francis in Arkansas) …
The point is, I recommend you.
Finally, I also recommend that you remove the “beaten path”. If you only travel to big cities, you will most likely miss very cool sites. The same applies to cities. Try
With the help of GPS and mobile phones at the point where they are, you.
I usually start with Google Maps. If you want, you can simply put your destinations and have Google plot your route. This works fine if you have one start and end point, but it does not work so well for multiple stops ..
That’s why I use longer trips, I use.Here’s a screenshot of what is possible:
Once you have a route, I recommend you.
In particular, with longer trips you will find that most of the directions include such things as “Stay on I-65 for 100 miles”. Assuming you can read the road signs, you probably don’t need to open the app all the time to tell you this …
As an additional precautions, I also print the instructions if my phone breaks/dies ..
Another thing that needs to be taken into account when planning a trip is who, if someone, you will be involved. I’ve been traveling solo and with friends, and both have their virtues …
Here are the pros and cons of each of them, based on my experience:
I’ll cover for the best deals at every moment, but a good place to start (especially for things like food) is just Google something.
Evaluate the cost of each item, evaluate them, and then add 10-15% to take into account what you probably forgot (this is the same.
To make it easier to save money, you can set up a recurring automatic deposit on your savings account. I have one set for every day I get paid (for my work on campus weekly). The money goes into the travel fund account.
It’s a good general procedure to keep the money available for travel. I use Capital One 360 for this, because they allow you to have an unlimited number of savings accounts with user names/economies, but you can use any banking system that you like …
With an overall cost assessment procedure, let’ s go into specific main trips … and save money at each …
For the purposes of this article, I assume you’re driving. The train/bus trip is also worth investigating (especially if you are outside the United States), but in my experience.
To spend less on fuel, I recommend
And finally, look after the toll roads. There are several routes in which they are mostly inevitable, but Google Maps is usually warned if your route contains them and offers alternative routes to avoid them ..
Many of my friends seem to perceive housing as more expensive than they are. I think this perception is a duvus from a generation of our parents, from the moment the hotels were your only option. Everything has changed, and today I would recommend you.
Our hotel days are.
Instead, I recommend either Airbnb or hostels (in this order) ..
For those who didn’ t use it,
Besides, in case you’re worried, Airbnb is very safe. The site background checks all its hosts and guests, and you can read your feedback about your potential location to make sure that it is safe and clean. I used it.
And as I said, be sure.
Finally, I offer another possible form of “accommodation”:
The cost of food can kill your budget if you are not careful, so it is important for them to have a budget. What you spend on food will vary depending on the type and quality you prefer, but in general I recommend.
It’s easy to say that you’re gonna be super strict and live only in bars and peanut butter, but you’re probably lying to yourself. It is better to plan a few nice (ish) meal than blow up your budget and put an end/to regret ..
Personally, I tend to eat super cheap breakfasts and dinners (granola, sandwiches, fruit, etc.) and shoelaces for dinner, but it depends on you …
Whatever you do.
Finally, it is sometimes worth checking sites such as Groupon to find local restaurant deals (especially useful if you are travelling with a group), and.
Personally, I’m not as big as the amusement park. Of course, there are things I will not be visiting cities without seeing/doing (I could not visit Amsterdam, not seeing Rijksmuseum, for example), but in general I prefer to do what I am really interested in in connection with the activity of “must-do” in this place ..
Besides, I can spend money on a strange museum visit, but most of the things I enjoy while traveling are free. For example, one of my favorite parts of New Orleans spent hours walking around the city park and the state sculpture garden. I didn’ t have to do anything except my time, and I got light exercises and sunlight as a bonus …
Even though the media can depict it, travel is.
There are several key points that can be made.
“A good traveler has no fixed plans and does not intend to arrive.”
Even more than proper planning, the key to an excellent trip has the right attitude. When you travel, things inevitably go wrong, and with the right attitude, make sure you look at these “pre-vexing” moments as part of the adventure …
Open to the unexpected, be open.
Here are some resources that could be used to plan your trip:
I hope you feel ready to plan and carry out your own trip …
