Advanced planning makes travelers happier!

I believe advanced planning is the key to a successful getaway and research shows that vacationers enjoy the trip planning just as much as (if not more than) the actual vacation! That’s why I love buying travel guidebooks, reading travel blogs, gathering travel pins on Pinterest, and, of course, researching options on TripAdvisor before a vacation.


My family is headed to Oregon this summer to escape the desert heat of our homestate, Arizona. TripAdvisor makes it easy for me to take a look at top-rated things to do in Oregon, restaurants in Bend, and hotels or vacation rentals in Portland. Just reading through these amazing lists and reviews makes my travel-loving heart get all aflutter. (Hello, Chicken Baja Hash Stack at the McKay Cottage Restaurant in Bend! Ooh…and I like the sound of “Best customer service in my entire life” at the RiverPlace Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel in Portland!)

Let your mind wander to your dreamiest destination.

Dreaming of travel is the next best thing to actual travel. My mind whirls with exciting destination possibilities at the idea of a $15,000 vacation booked on TripAdvisor to anywhere in the world. A South African safari or trip to East Asia have long been on my bucket list. Both of my children long to visit France – land of delectable croissants, the Eiffel Tower and location of their mom’s many junior year abroad stories. But the place that landed on every member of my family’s vision board is the Big Island of Hawaii for its volcanoes, spirit of aloha, and warm water beaches.

  1. This is an exciting giveaway from a site I use all the time!

  2. Jody Robbins, The Saucy Travel Mama says

    Agreed. Advanced planning is the way to go. If I won the $15,000 TripAdvisor trip, I’d for sure go on an African safari with my family. Oh, but then Hong Kong just popped into my head. It’s a toss up between Asia (with a stop at a SE Asian beach) and Africa.

  3. It’s fun to think about, isn’t it?!

  4. I love using TripAdvisor to research trips…now I need to book it there too.

  5. Stacy Jessee, The Restless Travel Mama says

    I love to use TripAdvisor while I’m traveling too! We find most of our kid-friendly restaurants all over the world through TA restaurant reviews!
