Traveling in style is as simple as planning. No matter where your destination, you can travel in style with a little prep work and some research before leaving for your trip. If you’ve got the travel bug and want to settle your wanderlust in style, read on.
Plan to commemorate your trip.
Before you step out your front door, pick up a travel book or journal. If you love taking photos, think about picking up a scrapbook or one of the best photo books out there too. You’ll want to document your trip from beginning to end and might be surprised at how many things you come across while planning y our trip that will work as travel journal embellishments. This photo book will make the perfect keepsake, too.
Whether you’re a professional photographer, digital photographer, or prefer readily available, basic clip art google photos of your favorite destinations, a great way to commemorate any trip is to capture it in style. Sure, an iPhone will work for capturing snapshots and selfies for family and friends but walking away with a custom photo book for your trip will be all the more stylish and help keep those memories fresh too.
Research destinations ahead.
If style’s what you’re going for, but your destination involves camping in a place like Zion national park, fear not. There are ways to camp and sleep under the stars that give class and luxury living a nod. Often known as glamping, glamorous camping has become popular with crowds who love adventure like exploring Kolob Canyons but want to sleep with the comforts of home. By planning, you can make this happen too.
Whether traveling in a rented RV or flying and staying in the Zion Lodge, the best way to know your adventures will be in high-quality style is to do your research. Great photographs of canyons, ledges, hot springs, and more are temping. But consider giving that ranch by the waterfalls a call to find out the specifics before booking your next glamper vacation. You’ll want to ask about bathrooms, food, water, and other accommodations if considering traveling somewhere more rustic like a national park.
If you plan to visit Las Vegas, the same thing applies. While five-star hotels hosting casinos are the norm, smaller motels along the strip can be deceiving. Remember, you get what you pay for, and if you want to travel in style, your best bet is to do the research and read reviews.
Pack with style.
One of the best ways to travel in style is to pack that way. From clothing, you can layer to costume statement jewelry pieces, take as much time with packing as you do your destination research. Think about bringing clothing in neutral colors, which will give you more style options depending on if you’re heading out for a waterfall picnic by day or to a dance club at night. Don’t forget to pack your camera too. Street photography in the places you come across can be quite stylish, too, and will make great additions to that travel blog, travel journal, or vlog thumbnail.
Consider alternative accommodations.
Part of style is standing out from the cloud. Think about your favorite images online. Backgrounds matter. It’s likely most aren’t in the fanciest hotels, but instead, on the edges of rivers, mountains, or other stunning spots. When planning your trip, keep your mind open to alternative accommodations that will not only give you something to brag about but make your trip stand out too. A cute Airbnb tiny house, a converted RV, a bungalow, or a cabin could be exactly right for you.
In the end, the work you do ahead will make for a better. Whether the plan is to post your unique memories all over social media or in a travel blog or vlog, you can travel in style if you do your homework ahead. Happy, stylish travels to you.
