The last thing you want to do is plan your next trip while you’re still traveling. It might not make sense that you’re already thinking about what’s next when the current one isn’t over yet. However, there are benefits with this idea.
You’re still inspired
When you’re having fun during this trip, you will feel inspired to take the next steps. You will also be in the mood to explore more since you love the experience. You know that if you’re going to wait until you arrive home, you won’t be enthusiastic anymore.
You know what else you want
You’ve probably traveled to different places by now. You have an idea about what else you want to see. You’ve crossed several items on your bucket list and you’re on to a bigger adventure. You will feel what else is needed during the trip and you can’t let that spirit down.
You won’t overthink it
Sometimes, you cancel a trip because you can’t deal with the details. You also overthink the expenses and decide it’s not best to continue the plan. When you’re planning while traveling, everything is about having fun. You want to keep on traveling because you love what’s going on. You will think about the next trip without dealing with the details yet. You have more time to delve deeper into the details later once the current trip is over.
You’re in a positive mood
You’re still high after visiting different places and going to destination you’ve only dreamed of. While you still have a rush of positive emotions, you might want to decide where to go next. You want to associate the next trip with something positive. You will also see it through since you like what traveling does to you.
The mistakes are still fresh
No trip is perfect. You will always experience setbacks and there’s nothing wrong with it. The good thing is you can still remember what happened and you will try everything to avoid it from ever happening again. Even when planning, you can consider these mistakes and stay away from them.
You might have met people
Another reason to go on a trip is you will meet exciting people. You will learn a lot from having a conversation with them. They might also tell you where they’ve been before and why it’s worth doing. You can also share your experiences with them and they will tell you what other places would be perfect for your next trip.
For these reasons, you should have your planner with you during the trip. Sure, you’re already working on your journal to document what you’re doing, but you can still do more. Besides, you have several opportunities to think. While inside the plane or on a long train ride, you can determine where to go next.
You should enjoy what life has to offer and these trips will give you what you deserve. Don’t deny yourself of the chance to continue exploring the world.
