Before the trip, we usually collect suitcases, worrying not to forget anything important and necessary. Although, in fact, the only thing that should not be overlooked – it is money and documents. Thinking about clothes and creams, people often miss a more important factor: the ideology of a successful journey. In the meantime, the success of any tours rather depends on the psychological preparation for it, than how much is needed. So, if you want to spend time on vacation, don`t think of small things and mentally prepare yourselves for the forthcoming holiday.
First, you need to define the place where you are going. It will be useful to write your thoughts about the culture of the country, as well as to consider how the local people and their attitudes may differ from yours.
Identified with the country, it is worth spending a bit more time and again writing down what the main purpose of the trip is. For Turkey, it might be getting a beautiful tan, or buying gold ornaments, for the Czech Republic – visiting the maximum number of beer bars, and tasting various types of beers, for India – familiarity with local customs and religion.
On the basis of reading the information on the country and their expectations from the trip, you can try to draw up a rough plan. It can be as broad enough to include a list of attractions (or, perhaps, procedures) that would like to visit, and quite detailed, with a preliminary breakdown by day.
And finally, a significant factor in a successful journey is its financial security. During crisis not everyone can take it with so much money to have the «innocent cannot refuse». If you do not want to feel deprived, it is desirable to plan the budget of all activities. Learn the cost of trips, meals and travel by public transport. Find out the local currency rate, converted to the available savings and divide the sum by the number of days of the trip. Knowing what resources you have will be much easier not to be without the means to travel by taxi to the airport in the end. Will also be useful to find out the rates for roaming with your mobile operator and, perhaps, to think about purchasing a local SIM card operator. Usually it is advantageous for a journey lasting more than a week.
All of the above said may seem complex , but it takes some force to prepare before arrival in the country, you will have arrived there, to spend much of your precious days of vacation obtaining maximum enjoyment.
