How to Pick Your Next Travel Destination

For those of you not following me on Instagram our spring break trip was to Morocco. When hearing about of plans to go to Morocco a few of my friends and some of our family as well asked us how we decided on Morocco. So here I am sharing our decision process..

Sometimes we plan a vacation with a destination in mind but more often than not we have no idea where we want to go.. we usually know if it's going to be an international trip or domestic but that is where the knowing ends and the figuring out starts.

I usually start with Kayak.. (not a sponsored post) You enter the airport you will fly out of and your perspective dates.. if you don't have dates I think it even gives you an option of seasons or something. And instead of your destination you select anywhere.. ah endless possibilities :)

Click search and wallah! You can narrow down by price, travel time, non stop. Zoom in on certain continents and or countries to explore in more detail.

While we still didn't know where we were going we at least had a narrower list than everywhere and anywhere! Then after we had our list we of countries I checked the weather and said bye bye to Russia, Germany and the UK. It was going to be off season and not warm enough in Greece either. The flight to Prague was inefficient.. flight efficiency is a big deal for M. Meaning a flight going to California with a layover in Maine.. inefficient!!

We didn't feel the boys were ready for South America just yet.. And so after all the research it was settled.. we were going to Morocco.

I love using Kayak! Perfect way to find your next trip. Now only if they could pay for it too! :)

This sounds like a practical approach, I must try it one day. I usually decide where to go and when as otherwise we would never leave the city. I am looking forward to finding out more about your trip. I have not been to Morocco, the only place I am familiar with in North Africa is Egypt.

Thank you very much for the post. Great Great.
I want to start traveling to the foreigner this year and with the search for flights and places to stay - there are many options over the internet, which turns out to be confusing to research. With this site, it is helping me immense, just need to decide even where to go, create conditions and fly :)

Morocco would be a dream destination! We have a running list of places we want to visit! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

That's a great idea! We definitely go off of flight prices, and it helps to be able to travel during the off season. Having Scott's Cheap Flights alerts help too. That's how we chose Barbados for the summer!
Hope you guys had an amazing time in Morocco. Can't wait to see a recap post!

I've never heard of Kayak... what a great site!

I've not been anywhere in Africa (though I can think of several countries I'd like to visit) and I'm intrigued that you chose Morocco! Was the food fantastic? My mouth is watering at the thought.

I usually start with Kayak when planning my travels as well and I make sure to use it in a private window. I usually have a destination in mind though.

That’s such a fun and spontaneous way of deciding where to travel. I’ve never used Kayek before, I’ll have to do as you’ve done and see where would be ideal for us to travel when we’re ready. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great day!
