The place where you would be visiting is also the most important decision in planning a vacation. The further away your destination is the more you would have to spend on transportation and lodgings. And also the number of days you would plan to stay also bears a factor in the amount of money you have to spend. If you are going on your honeymoon, then you have to spend less (or more) money as compared to when you are going on with your family and kids. Then once you have decided where to go, the next part is to book your flights and hotel reservations (if you are travelling far) and if you are travelling nearby, then you can take either your car or take the train and book only your hotel.
Packing your stuff is also very stressful, since you have to decide what kind of clothes and how many you would be taking depending on period of vacation. You have to make sure not to over pack so that you are stuck with clothes that you don’t want. The destination you are going and on what climate you would be travelling bears on what kind of clothes you would be taking. Everybody knows that colder climate needs warm cloths and vice versa. All this vacation planning needs considerable amount of money that you would have to allocate in advance and is additional to all the other expenses that you incur day to day. This amount of money will also include cash that you have to take with you to spend on your tours, park entrances and other attractions which is besides the transportation and lodgings amount that you have already paid in advance. Believe me we have gone through this and I believe that you will agree with me that the word vacation sounds nice, unless you start planning for one.
