Do not Overschedule

The number one rule when planning a trip is to not overschedule. It’s important to have an itinerary in place for your next big vacation, but leave some empty time. These empty timeslots can be used for leisurely activities, wandering around, or taking a nap. Overscheduling a vacation is going to stress you out rather than allowing you the time to relax and reduce stress.

Take Lots of Photos

Bring along your favorite camera or smartphone to capture photos everywhere you go. While you won’t want to have your eyes on your smartphone at all times, it’s important to have a camera on hand to snap quick photos of your favorite spots. This will give you a photo memory to look back on when your workdays are stressful at home.

Taste the Culture

Another way I’ve been able to get the most out of my trip is to taste the different cultures. There are so many food options around the world to experience. Make sure you dine out at a local restaurant that features this vacation destination’s most famous food options.

Choose a Vacation You Want

Don’t get all caught up in the hype to vacation at the next popular destination. Plan to take your trip somewhere that you’ll enjoy spending time at. This may be a place with lots of nightlife or lots of relaxation, it all depends on what you’re looking to get out of your next vacation. Don’t let someone else pick your destination!
