Deciding where to travel next
Are you in need of a vacation, love to travel the world, but just can’t decide where to travel next? I recently came to this problem. I want to visit everywhere! Unfortunately, I can’t see it all at once. I had to pick somewhere to go first. Finally, we decided our first travel destination would be the United Kingdom. I created this list that I hope will help you to decide where to head on your next trip.
1. Online Quiz to help narrow down your options
There are some great quizzes you can take to narrow down your options they can also help you with places you never heard of or thought of before.
Tripzard. Super cool website and it has a cute little lizard host! You can choose to find a travel destination like the one you have taken before or chose to try something new. Choosing to try something new will ask you questions to determine your travel destination preferences and give you a great list of locations that will interest you.
Jauntaroo This site is similar to Tripzard, it takes into consideration your destination preferences and pumps out some great choices for you to choose from. I had a little trouble with using this with my Chrome browser but it worked fine with Internet Explorer.
2. Drawing out of a hat
This one is so simple! Write down all your favorite travel destinations and draw one out of a hat!
3. Pin the tail on the donkey?
Do you remember playing this fun game at a birthday party as a kid? Now for a travel version, you can play pin the pin on the map. Hang a map on the wall and play a game of pin the tail on the donkey. Put in a set number of pins chose from your pins.
4. Spin the globe and point
There is this huge globe in Salem, Oregon at the River front park. I’ve thought it would be fun to take a Nerf dart and shoot at it and go where it lands. Unfortunately, the area of the park is under construction and I am unable to get to the globe at this time. If you have any desk globe at home. A fun way to choose where to go next would be to spin it and where ever your finger lands go to.
5. Closest or furthest first
Write down all the places you want to go and then put them in order of distance. Now choose if you want to go to the furthest away destination first or the closest destination first.
6. Play Marbles on a map
The last marble left is the place you go!
7. Choose from a deck of cards
Write all your destination ideas on index cards, shuffle the deck and pick one.
8. Check out Pinterest
