Girl's Guide to Choosing Your Ideal Vacation Destination ...


Planning and researching the ideal vacation spot to go to is all part of the excitement. But how can you choose from so many incredible places? Obviously, your budget is one of your primary considerations โ€“ no swanning around and living it up in gay Paris if you are on a hectic backpackers budget. Here's how to choose your vacation destination.

1. Traveling Companions

One of the first things you need to decide is who you are going to be taking with you, you could travel alone of course, but if you are a young adult it is all part of the fun if you have someone you know to share it with โ€“ like friends. Taking your germ-freak, hysterical and highly strung, scared of spiders and has to sleep with the light on and the hand sanitizer next to their bed kind of friend is not the perfect Amazon jungle camping partner by far.

Also heading out to New York with your hiking/adventure/nature buddy is going to cramp your style โ€“ and theirs - when you want to shop all day and party all night and they want to find a quiet nature hike or swim in a lake somewhere.

Choosing your travel companion is as important as choosing your destination, and be sure beforehand that you have a good understanding of each otherโ€™s traveling style. Just because you are friends doesnโ€™t mean you will both be comfortable in staying in the first seedy backpackers hostel you come across, or that a prerequisite for any hotel you stay will be a private valet and spa on site.

Once you have your travel companions sorted, and everyone is on board, it is time to get together and sort out where it is you are going to go. And there are a number of considerations one needs to take into account.
