PLAN WITH ELAN!
ESSENTIAL TRIP PLANNING TOOLS
To Those that can dream there is no such place as faraway.
Introducing Plan With Elan: The Urge To Wander’s brand new series of essential trip planning tools.
I am not the kind of spontaneous traveller who books one night’s accommodation in a place and leaves the rest to serendipity. That requires the luxury of time as well as the privilege of a first world passport. We have neither.
I normally research a destination to such an extent that I could practically write a thesis on it before I depart. It does not save us from every mishap on the the road, but the plan Bs (and Cs) have come in handy on numerous occasions.
Prior knowledge of arrival and departure systems at airports, availability of sim cards, cash and transport among other things free up time that could be better utilised…to allow room for some serendipity, for example.
I’ve compiled below some essential tools to help you plan your travels well. Hope you find them useful. You’ll find country specific resources over at the dedicated destination guide pages. If you haven’t yet decided where to go, you’ll find loads of inspiration in my collage of experiences.
THIS IS A CONTINUALLY EVOLVING SECTION. STAY SUBSCRIBED SO YOU NEVER MISS AN UPDATE.
