Planning a holiday!


I had always been the kid who was extremely lazy to do anything. But when it came to travelling, I would be the first one to get ready and pack my essentials. Travelling excites me. Come March, my family and I start jolting down different places and check the feasibility of visiting it, keeping in mind factors like weather, places, cost and so on. And then, we would have a week or two of short listing that to one. This was always the most difficult part. We would google away experiences, ask people we know, check the places of interest and we finally come up with the name of one place. This year, it came down to Hong Kong.

The next task in hand is to google the different travel agencies and find the package that is most suitable. Now a days most of them offer customized packages, but some how I find their standard ones the best, because they know where best to take their customers.

So we choose the 5 nights, 6 days package with 3 days in Hong Kong and 2 days in Macau – which is an island nearby, and is known as the Vegas of Asia (famous for it’s casino’s.) Since gambling is prohibited at HK, Macau attracts a lot of people from inside and outside the country. We had options of the air+land or just the land package (you’ll have to book your air tickets yourself), but we choose the air+land, as the prices didn’t seem to vary much, from what it would’ve been, had we booked. The package took care of everything – our flight tickets, hotels, entry tickets to places of visit and pickup-drop. It was extremely comforting.

So having all this ready by April, we planned the trip from the 13th of May. Again, being a travel-crazy person, I jolted down separate lists with the things to carry, things to buy (there), apps to download (for easy navigation there) and did some of my own research about the places.

At the airport! 😀

So there we were all set to fly. How was it there? Was it as seamless as it seemed in the package? Or did we have glitches. Well, wait for the next part of this series (Well, told ya, I am lazy!) Mean while, check some of my clicks in my insta page.

Oh, and do you guys have any suggestions for the next trip? Maybe 2017 could have one more international fly! 😀

Till the next one,

Plan your work, work your plan..


Hey,

Technology keeps advancing by the day. From the alarms that wake us everyday, to the expense tracker in our mobile and the online tools for cab booking that are just a click away, technology has been ruling us. But there are still some people like me, who just love the smell of paper. Planning has undergone a tremendous tech-change, and yet I use a planner (and a dozen pens to decorate them) for my everyday goals and to-do.

I’ve always been very choosy when it comes to stationary. And most of the planners never convinced me completely, until I came across this planner by Nirmala Franklin, that I simply could not resist.
