Does anyone have tips for sites or resources to help plan for travel? I spend a lot of time researching locations, recommendations, and checking for local suggestions. Any resources or tips would be helpful!

Where are you looking to travel to? Are you looking for someone to take over and help plan the trip for you or resources so you can plan it on your own?

Resources to plan ony own! Excited to travel again soon and was just hoping to learn how other plan for personal trips and what resources I might not have used.

Following..

TripAdvisor

Do you just use it to find reviews of places, or recommendations, or something else?

My husband and I eloped but are planning our formal wedding in Spring 2023 - this was the right choice for us for many reasons that I don’t need to detail haha. Anyway, we just found a great deal for our dream honeymoon, but the catch is that the trip would be this fall.

Would it be insane for us to do our honeymoon before our formal wedding but after our elopement? We would still do something smaller after the wedding next year!

I was working at a Hotel one night & I saw a man appearing on two different floors, then in the stairwell. The man was in his 70’s or 80’s. He was wearing nothing but tidy whiteys. When he got to the front desk I asked “is everything alright? Are you okay?” (Assuming he may be senile),He wasn’t senile, he went swimming & wanted to make me uncomfortable and started to flirt while in his sopping wet see through tidy whiteys- and of course I had to clean up the water he tracked through the lobby.
