Time, budget, distance, hassle-factor, travel style, your personality and current emotional state, are naturally among other factors that play into how you’ll experience a destination. With so much mass tourism today, it’s rather easy for you to forget that travel is a very personal experience. Someone else’s paradise could be ho-hum for you, or worse, might be not pleasant at all.
Anyhow this is the strategy that you should follow in order to choose the right travel destination for you.
- Find your travel why
What’s the thing that motivating you to take this trip? Are you seeking for pure relaxation? Do you want to experience a new city like a local? Maybe you just want to feel alive in nature or inspired by art? Perhaps reconnecting with your family and making lasting memories is currently on top of your mind?
- Know your traveler personality
Allocentric travelers are the natural wanderers. They’re normally more open to new experiences, cultures and not setting strict plans. It’s rather more exciting for them to get the chance to explore like a local and want to immerse themselves in a foreign culture than take the well-trodden tourist path.
- Decide on a travel style
Think about your travel why and your travel personality, then you can start to consider what travel style that will suit you best. Budget and timeframe will also play into this, which we’ll touch on next.
- Hone in on your travel budget
There’s almost always a way for you to travel on a budget that you may have allocated. If you’re cost-conscious it pays to consider a region where you can decide where your money will go a longer way.
