Organising your holiday/ Planning your trip

If you’re a reader of my or Suzanne’s blog, you’ll know that we’re meeting up in Scotland in two months’ time *squeal* 😉

Suzanne wrote a GORGEOUS post on how she’s organising for this upcoming trip and I printed off her post to gather some ideas for my own planning.

Why reinvent the wheel, right?!

My system is very simple – we use one of these plastic envelopes and put everything in there, like e-tickets, booking confirmations, things to see and do, etc. That plastic envelope goes with us and fits nicely in the lid of my suitcase.

Once we’re travelling however, I like one notebook to serve as a journal and finance tracker. At the back I write down everything we spend and in the front, I jot down some notes of what we do each day. It really helped the last time when I was blogging the photos from Thailand and Malaysia.

When I read about Suzanne’s cute notebook, I got all excited and went out and bought yet another notebook!

Then I got home and realised I had this one:

So this is what I’m using.

This one has sections for everything under the sun – itinerary, people met, events and places visited, articles purchased, expenses, embassies, name and address, hotel details, etc, etc. Even if you don’t have one like this, you can do what Suzanne did and get one with lots of dividers or as I usually do and use post-it flags to make your own sections.

See that yellow post-it sticking out of the notebook? That’s me customising my notebook even further.

Who else has a trip coming up? How are you organising it?
