My wife and I are planning our next trip. I have been thinking lately about how much work it is Just to even start your trip planning, nonetheless actually plan What you are going to do when you get there. It really boils down to the 5 W's (Who, What, When, Where & Why?). I took out How, because the 5 W's & the 1 H doesn't sound as cool. I may also talk about them out of order as well, but here has been my thought process for our upcoming trip to Boone/Blowing Rock.
Why?: This may be the most obvious question. To get away. We are going to try to get away at least once a quarter. If not for my job, then also because its healthy and can be a lot of fun!
Who?: Not sure if anyone read it, however I did a blog article a little while ago that was all about traveling with friends. So, we wanted to make it happen. So, for this next trip we have reached out to some friends and we think its going to work out.
Where?: Already did the beach thing this summer with a family trip to Carolina Beach. Btw, if you would like a list of recommendations for Carolina Beach, I can send pre-done recommendations to you for $25. So, living where we are living, quick trips are often decided between beach and mountains. So, Mountains it is! Now, I've heard great things about Tweetsie Railroad. So, we are looking at using VRBO to rent a cabin near both Blowing Rock and Boone.
When?: I quickly did some research and found out that the weekend of October 7th is the best weekend to go to the Boone/Blowing Rock area for the Fall colors. Then, reached out to our friends and they are free too!
What?: As in what are we going to do when we get there. Well, that's my next research project and it could benefit you too. You can have this trip's pre-done research to, after its done. Also, remember that I custom plan trips for anyone, if they are interested. All I ask is a meeting and the ability to give you a quote for my time.
