There you are planning your next big trip, and then all of a sudden the travel advice starts flowing in from everyone you know. We’ve all been there. Even people who haven’t traveled in decades start throwing advice your way. With so much advice and differing opinions, it is easy to get confused and start to second guess yourself. And let me tell you, I have seen some really bad advice floating around out there.
In this article, I am going to discuss the logistics of our trip. By answering the “how” and “how long” questions in our travel planning process, we will be able to start filling in our transportation and accommodation needs for the trip. However, before we can start shopping for flights and hotels, we need to know how long we are going to be staying and what our itinerary is going to look like.
With the increasing understanding we have of the impact humans are having on our environment, more-and-more attention has been given to sustainable practices. From sustainable building, to sustainable farming, it seems like sustainability has become a very big trend in recent years. And now it seems, the travel industry has begun to follow suit.
If you were following along with your own trip in mind, you should have a compiled list of all of the things your group would like to see, ranked in order of what your group would like to see the most, and a map with all of these places laid out on it. If you haven’t done that yet, I suggest you go back and do that before reading this article any further. It will be awfully difficult to start planning the “how”, or the logistics, of your trip if you don’t yet know what you want to see and where those things are.
