what do you do when you plan a trip....

Do you research the trip yourself, call a travel agent, or just drive?

Do you have a strict budget, little budget or none?

Do you buy a new wardrobe, a few things, or go as you are?

Will you go for a vacation that is hot, cold or somewhere inbetween?

Where ever you go do you...want to see and do everything, sit on a beach or other?

Add a question....

what brought these questions on...well first of all the travel thread and then my booking of a two night stay in winnipeg next month for dh`s appt. Got a good online price deal on the room....now what to do while there. Dh wanted to go to a Jets game...but you have to go on a list to be drawn for tickets they are that much in demand

We always go in the summer with our relatives from Hawaii.
we choose a place depends on how far we want to travel.
last yr ...with things going on with medical event , we chose a place 2 hours away for about 3 days. My swh arranged for motel stay in our budget. We did the road trip to beaches, walks around town, pedal biking in a group with the transom bike.

good that you all got to go away during the medical event. That was a decent distance to travel.

did your motel have a fridge or microwave so you could save some money? We look for that if we can at a resonable price or take our plu in cooler and other coolers if gone for a few days. We sure appreciate places with a microwave we can use too

I would love to be at the beach...i bet you did too.

Yes we brought fruits and water. the place had fridge and microwave. If we eat out and had leftovers , we would warm up the leftovers. Not sure of walking tours, we just walked around by ourselves. We went along the coast . Yes the biking is fun as a group.

We have never used a travel agent so we've always done the research ourselves.

We aren't very strict but we usually have a reasonable budget.

We research, plan, and make arrangements ourselves.

Somewhat of an idea of what it will cost, but we know there are always surprises.

We generally don't need to buy anything. Sometimes we'll buy something while on a trip, but we don't go shopping on purpose. If we see something we like and it's reasonably priced, we'll maybe buy it as a rememberance of the trip.

Will you go for a vacation that is hot, cold or somewhere inbetween?

We prefer to be comfortably warm, but not sweaty hot.

Where ever you go do you...want to see and do everything, sit on a beach or other?

Both see things and sit and relax too.

Add a question....

Can't think of any, but if you go on over and visit my Vacations & Trips board, there are lots of ideas and tips there. You can find the link under my siggy.

Hope you do find something fun to do while there!!
