8 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN PICKING YOUR NEXT DESTINATION

 

8 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN PICKING YOUR NEXT DESTINATION

1. The local cuisine

This is always the number one thing I consider when planning my trip. If the food is good and to my particular taste at that time, that’s the biggest determinant of where I’ll be going next. There are a lot of locations I’ve put on the back burner purely because I’m not craving the food they have to offer at this stage in life.

If you don’t like the types of food provided in the place you’re going, you’re not going to have a good time. Plain and simple. There is nothing worse than exploring all day only to settle down to a meal you don’t have the taste for. You should settle down to something you’re excited try and can’t wait to experience. Go somewhere where that’s possible! The way I look at it, my taste buds will continue to develop as I age and I can always travel then, too! And so can you!

2. The people

Different cultures bring different people with different attitudes. Some cultures promote friendliness and acceptance and a sense of hospitality, others not so much. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. At this stage in my life, I personally prefer places where the people are super friendly. Every traveler should assess what their needs and/or wants are before picking their destination. It can make or break the trip!
