like in our chosen destination?

is our overall budget? What type of accommodations
are we looking for? What mode of transportation will we
getting to a destination can often be as fun and exciting
as the vacation itself. Take into account your time frame,
budget and the number and ages of travelers. Do we want
to spend all our time en route? Will we need transportation
at our destination?
Do we like to visit coastal areas, beaches, mountains,
deserts, lakes or rivers? How about exploring large metropolitan
areas? Do we enjoy touring historical sites? Or, learning
about a new culture? Are we drawn to the excitement of
amusement parks or the solitude of nature in a National
park? Do we seek adventure and new experiences or are
we more comfortable with the familiar?
kind of weather do we seek?
Warm and tropical, temperate, or cold? Is there a favorite
season or activity that can only be done in certain weather?
do we like to do?
Are we active -- choosing sports like hiking, white water
rafting, swimming, biking, kayaking, snow skiing, horseback
riding, and fishing? Do we like museums, theaters, concerts,
workshops, sightseeing or shopping? Do we want to learn
a new sport, an art, a skill, and even a little history?
Maybe a family participation on an archaeological dig
for a day? Do we want to do a number of different activities,
or do some people want one thing and others another?
are our accommodation needs?
Are we looking forward to a few days in a chateau or relaxing
in a resort? Do we want to travel to several different
cities, staying in either hotels, apartment/hotels or
B&B's or guest houses, or do we enjoy the ease of
a home base, taking day trips? Do we want to cook in our
own lodgings or eat out? Or do we want a little of both?
we want to take a tour or go independent?
Do we like the spontaneity and freedom of independent
travel, or the security of organized day trips? Can we
do some of our trip independently and use local guides
and outfitters for specific activities?

Clothing and equipment needs? Dietary needs? Physical
