Let us start by saying — great choice!
Spain is the second most popular destination in the world and for a reason.
For many reasons, in fact: the beautiful beaches, the mouthwatering cuisine, the unique nightlife, and the list goes on.
You’re probably already daydreaming about your trip to Spain, but there’s still some planning to do, and that’s exactly what we’re here to help you with. Keep reading and learn how to build an itinerary!
What Do I Need to Build an Itinerary Online?
There are two essential things you need in order to create your itinerary: a trip planning tool and resources about your destination.
As for the planning tool, there are countless options online. If we had to choose one, we’d go for Adobe, as it has many beautiful templates that you can use to make an itinerary for free.
Regarding the resources about Spain, you have this website, of course. Additionally, it’s a great idea to explore social media platforms for some inspiration, particularly Instagram and Pinterest.
3 Tips for Creating Your Itinerary
Now that you have your resources ready, it’s time to actually start planning.
Don’t know where to start? These tips will help you!
1. Be Realistic
We understand if there are a million things you want to see and do while you’re in Spain, but that isn’t realistic.
The truth is that you can include as many spots and attractions in your itinerary. However, in the end, you’ll feel like you went everywhere but didn’t really experience anything for real.
Plus, you’ll probably spend way more than you should!
Make a realistic itinerary with the spots you really can’t miss and remember that you can always go back.
2. Leave Some Time to Explore (and to Rest)
Creating an itinerary isn’t about planning every single minute of your trip. In fact, you should always leave some time to wander and see where your destination takes you.
Not only will those times be a lot more relaxing, but they might lead to the best memories of the trip.
3. Include All the Details About Your Trip
You’ll be in a completely new country and everything will be new to you, so gathering all the important information in one place will help you stay organized and safe.
A few details to include are:
- Flight details
- Accommodation address and contact number
- Time and routes of additional transportation (buses or trains)
- Time and meeting point of any tour you’ll participate in
