It's time to get crafting. What better way to visualize a trip than by seeing images of that destination, its delicious cuisine, and local culture on a curated board just for you? Whether it’s virtually built on Pinterest or involves you cutting out magazine clippings and photographs, and then DIY-ing a board to hang above your bed, this is one of the best visual reminders of your dream trip.

Make A Playlist

This is a way to create a soundtrack for the experiences you will have on your future trip. Dreaming of Hawaii? Make a collective mix of the Beach Boys, Elvis, and Jack Johnson to bring all of the tropical vibes to life. Having an audible way of visualizing your dream creates momentum and excitement. It’s also tons of fun to share with fellow travelers, as there are already a bunch of pre-made destination playlists on apps such as Spotify to help you build out your ultimate getaway soundtrack.

3 Research The Destination

Looking into what that particular destination actually has to offer allows you to accurately picture exactly what that dream trip will look like.
