Are you planning a getaway this Spring? Here are five steps to planning your next vacation:
Step 1: Set a Budget
Determine how much you would like to spend on transportation (including flights and/or rental cars), accommodations, food, and activities. This will help you narrow down where to go and what to do during your vacation.
Step 2: Choose your destination
Are you hoping to travel to a new destination or visit a familiar favourite? Do you want to fly or drive? Are you looking to spend time in the city, at the beach, or a little bit of both? These are all questions to ask yourself as you consider your budget, interests, and preferences when picking a vacation destination.
Step 3: Plan your activities
Going on vacation is a great time to get out of your comfort zone and try new things. Make a list of must-see attractions at your destination, and create a list of things you want to do. Whether you’re interested in hiking, cultural or historical activities, sightseeing, natural wonders or water sports, the hardest part will probably be narrowing down your options and fitting it all into one trip!
Step 4: Book your accommodations
Research hotels, resorts, and vacation rentals to be near the activities you want to do and compare location (including walkability score) and amenities. Global hotel chains hotels offer comfort and familiarity no matter where you are in the world, smaller locally-owned boutique hotels may offer a more charming experience, while using a service like Airbnb can help you live like a local. Look for deals and discounts that can help you save money on your lodging - many accommodations offer discounts when multi-night stays are booked.
Step 5: Pack Wisely - Closer to your departure date, look up the weather forecast and pack accordingly. In the Spring, temperatures may still vary widely so it’s important to layer up and prepare for all weather conditions. When it comes to skincare, our NENA Pamper Me pouch contains a travel sized Clay Mask, travel sized Cleansing Cream, and full-sized Mineral Serum. When you’re done with our products, you can reuse the canvas zip pouch for packing other small accessories too.
