As you know, we love to travel. For this month, my posts are going to be about how we plan the day to day details of our upcoming cruise.
Yes, we are arriving a few days early for this cruise. We try never to arrive the morning of the cruise. You never know if you run into a delay and miss the ship.
In my opinion it all comes down to planning ahead. I spend time online and reading travel books to determine what we want to do, see and experience. With this in mind, we plan out our time, research admissions, tickets, etc – sometimes there is a discount to purchasing in advance / online vs buying (it definitely saves you the time of waiting on line to purchase entry).
For our upcoming cruise, we determined what things we wanted to do and have been making the advanced purchases as our budget allows – that way much is pre-paid and we’ll have minimal expenses on the trip.
Because it’s peak flower season, we needed to make a reservation in advance. This will probably sell out if we didn’t. We also have let our friends know our travel plans as we try to meet up with them when we are in town.
