Do you ever feel like you get in your own way when you’re planning a trip? Sometimes I become so overwhelmed about choosing the right place to eat, stay, visit that I start to shut down a little. This is a shot of my coffee table and about a dozen magazines I rounded up with Italy recommendations. And, I just got one of those Travel & Leisure compilation books in the mail and it’s called “Europe: The Places We Love.” Perfect! But how will I ever remember everything!?
Should I rip all of the pages out and create an Italy folder to bring with me? Make a spreadsheet listing each destination with some kind of clever note to myself as a reminder of why I wanted to go there in the first place? Just use my computer to figure it out when I get there? Or should I not bother and wander around doing what looks cool like people did in the olden days?
Am I annoying you yet? Because I’m annoying myself. So, how do you prepare for trips?
Dislcaimer: I am completely aware that this is what my husband likes to call “a first world problem.”
