Create Your Itinerary


Now that you know where you’re going and how you’re getting there, it’s time for the best part, building your itinerary! Start off making a list of the activities you want to prioritize, then spreading them out throughout the duration of your trip. Remember, there’s no need to fill in every gap in your schedule! It’s nice to have time to relax, and sometimes the best discoveries are made when you wander and explore an area on your own.


Start Packing / Choosing Your Outfits


You may want to do some shopping beforehand (There’s no such thing as a bad excuse to shop!). Make sure to choose versatile outfits, or a bunch of basics that you can mix and match

Reminder -- make sure your outfits are appropriate and comfortable for the activities you have planned! Make sure you find the perfect bag to hold all your items from websites like Away and Longchamp
