Many of us love to travel, but we may also feel that we don’t get as many opportunities as we might like. As a result, we may be left to dream about great places that we would like to visit.
Although this may seem somewhat frustrating, it’s always nice to have something to aim for. Besides, it’s also true that the planning is often as much fun as the travelling! Well – almost!
I’ve had a fair few thoughts on this subject over the years and my ideas keep on changing! There’s always the consideration that it might be nice to begin by visiting a location that you already know and love. That way, you can be sure that you’ll commence your journey on a positive note.
The alternative might be to head for somewhere that you’ve heard about and think would be great. The danger here is that you could be seriously disappointed if all is not as you had imagined. But there is, of course, the considerable chance of arriving at the greatest place that you’ve ever encountered on this planet. That would be an amazing way to start any trip!
So where does that leave me? My thought process at this point involves looking for interesting places that I’ve not previously visited. I find myself checking Las Vegas accommodation options, without really having particular timescales in mind.
But how would it set the tone for my trip? That’s one question that I have certainly been asking myself. I wonder how all other locations would look through my eyes after Las Vegas. Would I find myself bored of other cities? Maybe I would actually enjoy them even more, possibly discovering that I’m able to relax more.
The idea of having a great trip around the world is spectacular. It would be an unforgettable experience. But knowing where to start the great journey is not as easy as it first seems!
