On this page, you’ll find precious tips for planning your travels, thoughts to mentally prepare yourself for your departure, and suggestions from our experience for saving money wherever and whenever possible 😀


Preparing for departure: the right attitude!

Planning a trip, whether do-it-yourself or through an agency, takes time and energy: you have to decide where you want to go, what you want to do, what you want to see, what you do NOT want to do, and much more…

Hotels, insurance, airline tickets, packing by making everything fit, or choosing a backpack… and then again schedules, quotes, details, connections, services…

For those who are just starting and have never traveled much, all this planning is often perceived as an insurmountable obstacle It can be frightening, create unjustified anxiety and prompts them to postpone the departure and their dreams further and further.

If you find yourself in this “limbo” of uncertainty (I know how it feels… we’ve all been there!), before even start planning your trip, I recommend that you have a good deep breath, and put into perspective what you are trying to accomplish: plan a trip to see a new place that attracts and fascinates you.

The thought is already a gorgeous thing!

Whether it’s a trip of a few days or several years, whether it’s to a place an hour from home, or to the other side of the world, a trip is always a wonderful experience, and to experience it to the fullest it all starts with your attitude and how you approach it!
