Anyone with a phone or computer can prepare an itinerary and GPS devices have made it extremely easy to navigate. You, more than likely, know where you want to go, how long your want to stay and how you are going to get to your destination.
Important Question! Are you and your traveling partners prepared psychologically for the adventure?
The CCT Adventures “Travel Planner” will help you plan your trip to the Central Coast of California but that is not all we want to accomplish.
Planning Develops Expectations!
Planning a trip can be as much fun as taking the trip. In planning a vacation, a day trip or a weekend getaway you develop expectations concerning what you want to happen. if you allow yourself to have appropriate expectations and know your travel partners expectations you will have an advantage. Expectations and dreams are distinctly human and we want to give help make all your dreams come true.
Travel Planner Itineraries are Simple!
The method of transportation is simple. You will drive, fly or ride a train. Planning activities is easy but communication with travel partners is a must. It is relatively easy to figure out what you want to do, which is normally just have fun. However, if you don’t examine expectations, communications and other important aspects of human behavior you might find your trip turning into a disaster.
Before going any further stop for a minute and work on the basics. If you are going to be traveling with friends or family now is a good time to talk to them about the basics. You might have one destination in mind and your partner might be thinking just the opposite.
Travel Planner Essentials – Talk to each other and determine which city on the Central Coast would be the best place to spend the night. It would be a good time to discuss what type of motel, bed and breakfast etc. you would like to acquire. Don’t wait until the last minute to decide.
Make sure to get everyone involved. If you don’t you are opening the situation up for argument in the future. Have you ever been on a vacation which turned out to be a total disappointment? I think we have all experienced disappointment on a trip at some time in our life. Now, it is time to pre-plan reactions and expectations.
Set a time to have a meeting with each person going on the trip. If it is just you and your spouse or partner still take time to communicate clearly your expectations. Be sure to ask questions and make notes of what is said in this meeting. You might think this is ridiculous but believe me this can stop an argument while on vacation.
