A lot goes into planning a travel itinerary, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be stressful! In this episode of ITK: Out of a Suitcase, host and travel influencer Francesca Murray (@onegrloneworld) tells us everything we need to know about making a stress-free vacation plan. Her tips and tricks will make any getaway a relaxing break.
“Sometimes, the hardest part of vacation is planning your trip,” Francesca says. “One of the best ways to reduce stress is to stay organized.”
She suggests organizing your thoughts in a notebook before traveling, recommending the PAPERAGE lined pocket journal notebook because it has over 100 pages yet comes in a small size that can fit in a pocket or small bag. “There’s just nothing like putting a pen to paper, and I don’t think I’ll ever stop doing that,” Francesca adds.
“Trips can also require a lot of planning and paperwork, and that’s why it’s important to keep all your information in one place. The best way to do that is by putting your documentation in a folder with dividers,” Francesca advises.
Francesca recommends the SKYDUE letter A4 paper expanding file folder because it has five expandable pockets that keep your booking confirmation and reservation details neat and organized.
If you struggle with planning a travel itinerary, Francesca suggests starting with a book of ideas. She likes The Bucket List: 1000 Adventures Big & Small to help plan vacation activities because it is extremely comprehensive, providing suggestions for travel destinations across all seven continents.
“As you can see, it’s possible to have a fun-filled trip that’s also organized,” Francesca says.
