Everyone has their own travel style; some like to just buy a plane ticket and go in the direction that the wind is blowing, while others plan everything down to where they will eat every meal. Personally, I gravitate heavily towards the former, but I do like to do a little research on the areas I am going to beforehand. This way I am not 100% clueless upon arrival. Hope this file helps others planning their journeys!
I also employ maps to complement the travel planning file as attached below.
