When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.                 — Susan Heller

Whether you do it yourself or leave it to a travel agent, trip planning is not only necessary but can be part of the fun before embarking on a long or short journey.  Trip planning encompasses more than what to see and do wherever it takes you.  It includes finding travel insurance, obtaining visas, addressing medical concerns, and how to pay for things when you get there.  Whether perusing the online comments of travelers about their experiences or finding the best tour company to ease your mind, planning is an essential part of every journey.
