We love nothing more than a good road trip with our family and friends. But as much as we love seeing new places and meeting new people, there's nothing quite like laying out all of our plans in front of us and working through them one by one.
For many people, this means picking up pen and paper and writing down everything they need to do—or at least jotting down notes on their phone or computer. And that's fine! But if you're looking for something a little different this year, try using your bullet journal instead.
Bullet journals are an amazing way to plan for anything—and when it comes to planning for a vacation, they can make all the difference between an enjoyable experience and a stressful one.
Here are some guides to help you plan your next trip:
Step 1: Pick a location
The first thing you'll want to do is decide where you want to go on vacation. Make a list, in your bullet journal, of all your options. A good rule of thumb is to choose somewhere different from your last vacation—you'll have more fun if you're exploring new places and sights!
Step 2: Determine how long you'll be gone
Now that you know where you want to go and why, it's time to figure out how long it will take to get there (and back). This will determine what kind of accommodations need booking.
Step 3: Take stock of your finances.
If you're going somewhere that requires a plane ticket or hotel stay, figure out how much money you have available before committing yourself to the trip. Once you've made that decision, write down how much money you'll need for the trip in your journal.
Step 4: Make a list of all the things you want to do when on vacation.
This can include things like sightseeing, eating at new restaurants, seeing a specific museum or visiting an old friend—whatever it is that will make this trip special for you! Make sure they are all listed down in your journal so nothing gets missed off.
Step 5: Make a packing list
You can use your Bullet Journal notebook to track what you need to bring with you. Make sure to include all the essentials—like sunscreen and swimsuits—as well as any special items that might be needed for different activities or destinations.
If you want to remember your summer vacation for years to come, then use your Bullet Journal to plan for it. You can use this as a memory book when your vacation is over.
Now that you know how to plan for your summer vacation, what are you waiting for? Start planning today and make this summer the best one yet!
