How do you begin?

If you’re already an experienced planner and researcher, the above question probably doesn’t apply to you.

If you’re like most people, however, you’d love for that someone who’s been there and done that to tell you exactly what to do.

For that, you can peruse our site for ideas, trip reports and information, for which content is being written and added daily.

To plan a trip from scratch, how we do it, read on.

Today we’ll discuss using the map method we use.

There are many times that we want to get away, but you

don’t want to travel more than an hour, or two or even three.

For that we start with google maps:

  • Start by typing in your city.
  • Zoom out and find a city or town around an hour away


  • Now make an imaginary circle with your hometown at the center.
  • Voila! You will now find other cities in and around your circle of reference around an hour:



    • Expand your horizons with 2 hours, using the same concept
    • Find more places to go around your whole circle:



  • If you are willing to travel more, you can expand to 3 or more the same way using the same concept
  • Find more places to go around your whole circle:googmaps4

Now you have lots and lots of options!
