How to plan a weekend trip
When you plan a quick weekend getaway or a long weekend trip, there are some basic tips you want to follow.
First pick a destination: Do you feel like a city break? Do you want to go camping? Are you looking for a beach vacation?
Decide on the easiest way to get there: Fly? Drive? Take public transport?
Next, decide on a budget and look for travel deals to suit your budget.
If you can't find a good deal, consider being flexible and changing your destination.
Before you book anything, check the weather forecast, so you don't have any unpleasant surprises..
Pack light and keep it simple. Ideally pack no more than 3 outfits and just 1 pair of shoes.
Book your weekend accommodation in advance for complete peace of mind.
Pick tours and other special activities and book them in advance.
Read reviews of restaurants and bars in your destination and make reservations if necessary.
Plan a general, flexible itinerary for each day of your weekend. This will help you make the most of your time.
Leave home as early as possible on the first day of your trip, so you get to spend as much time as possible enjoying your trip.
Have fun! Forget about your daily routine and enjoy a weekend of escapism πŸ˜€
