Summer is here and I bet that, whatever you’re doing now, all you dream about is summer holidays! I graduated a while ago and I still get the travel bug every time June starts. We all want to make the best of our vacations, and what a better way to do it than plan it with Bullet Journal?

Where to travel?
It all starts from the big question – where our next adventure will take. Why don’t you simply make a list of places you want to visit and pick one of them? Time to start fulfilling your traveling dreams!
Now that you have your perfect trip in mind, time to start saving up. Savings trackers like some of these below can be a great help!
What to do?
You definitely want to get the most of your experience! So do a little research – what places are interesting to visit? What restaurants do you want to go to? Make it a fun experience and write down all your finds in your Bullet Journal for future reference.
You know the dates, you know where and what you want to see – time to create your itinerary! It doesn’t have to be a minute by minute plan mind you, but just some general understanding on what you’ll be doing. You don’t want to go to a museum when they are having a day off don’t you? Obviously, not everything needs to be planned to the last detail. It’s always good to leave some time for whatever life might bring you.
I especially love creating itineraries, because later when you travel, you just have to fill it up with places you visited, your feelings and your emotions and you already have a wonderful place to keep your memories!
This is one of my favorite spreads! When I was a kid, before Christmas, I used to have a chocolate calendar. Each day, beginning on the 1st of December, I’d open a little slot, and discover a small candy, and it was wonderful! Not only because of chocolate, but also because of the amazing feeling that Christmas day was a bit closer!
Well, this works on pretty much same principle! Ticking one more day on your countdown spread every day adds that extra bit of excitement!
Of course in the last days, you’ll get busy packing. Why not help yourself by making a packing list! Make sure you have it all there and you’re all ready for new adventures.
Always make sure you have all your flight info handy, especially if you’re planning a long trip with layovers and several destinations. It’s really easy to do with an assigned Bullet Journal spread, like some of these below.
The only thing left is to pick the music for your upcoming trip! I love doing it for every trip I take, that way my memories get connected to the music and I can always remember the good times just by listening to the music.
