Winter begins to give way to spring, bringing with it the desire for holidays and a change of scenery.Many of us choose this time of year to start thinking about our summer holidays! This week we have therefore decided to present to you how Foglietto can help you organize your holidays with peace of mind, from the choice of itinerary for nomadic holidaymakers to the listings of restaurants to discover for gourmet travellers… So save space in your suitcases: condense your five bilingual travel guides and dictionaries into a few note cards! Andiamo!

Imagine the trip of your dreams thanks to the cards

Travelling is above all about choosing: where to go, how long to leave, which places to visit, how much time to devote to each stage, road trip or all-inclusive resort?

Are you a little lost in the face of all these possibilities? What if you made it easier for yourself by giving material to several scenarios? To do this, it's very simple:

  1. Write on each sheet a possible stage of your trip or a place you particularly want to visit.At this stage, mix cities, monuments, regions... It doesn't matter! Do not hesitate to detail on your sheets what you like in each of these destinations.This will help you if a choice is necessary.
  2. Play with the cards to create different possible routes.You can even place them on a map of the country or region concerned.This will allow you in particular to see which are the “zones” to privilege in case you do not have time to do everything.
  3. Take a photo of each itinerary thus imagined, then give yourself time to come back to it before making a decision.

You can also use masking tape to trace the route on a map.In this case, do not hesitate to write on the masking tape the number of kilometers or the travel time required from one point to another.This little trick will help you stay reasonable and realistic.

Finally, remember that this is all about a vacation, not a collection of “places to see” or Instagrammable photos to take.So do not forget the most important and take into account the time needed to immerse yourself in each place and enjoy it to the full.😉

Organize important information step by step and adjust your trip

Places to visit, activities to do, restaurants to eat, shops to discover... In theory, there is no shortage of ideas! If you do not want to walk around constantly with a backpack full of travel guides, remember to write down in advance on your Foglietto cards the addresses of the places you absolutely want to discover.

Proceed by type of information, for example giving a simple code to your trip:

  1. Number each leg of your journey.
  2. For each of these steps, plan a set of cards on which you will write the same number in the box provided for this purpose.Dedicate, for example, lined sheets to restaurants and cafes, checkered sheets to activities, blank sheets to cultural visits, etc.Do not hesitate to also include practical information about each location on your sheets: opening hours, prices, history, telephone number, etc.
  3. Are you traveling with your children? Imagine fun games! Entrust them with new sheets at each stage, with riddles about the city, challenges to be met at each new stage, etc.

Film photography enthusiasts, also use your files to keep track of your photo settings and the places/times corresponding to each image.

Also use two to-do list cards to pack your ideal bags and make sure you don't forget anything important.If you travel by plane, use a card for your cabin suitcase, in which you will take care to slip a survival kit for the first two days, in case of loss of your suitcase.Keep this sheet for the return, and perhaps even for your next trips.

Take full advantage of the numbering system of your files in order to keep a real memory of your travels, which you can relive either chronologically thanks to these numbers, or in a thematic way, by choosing for example to read only the sheets that you have dedicated to the places you have visited.Once the trip is over, perhaps you will indeed want to keep certain cards and, why not, slip them into your photo album, in order to tell a real story... As with any use of your Foglietto, it is it's up to you to invent your own codes!
