Being the absolute organisation queen that I am, I’ve planned my up and coming trip to Paris down to a T, with the help of my trusty BuJo. I trawled the internet and Pinterest for hours searching for the best ways to plan a trip using a BuJo and thought I would share with you my must have sections and also some of my favourite spreads.
Like I mentioned, I’m traveling to Paris on Tuesday – I’m there for 4 days and all whilst is technically a university led trip, we have a lot of free time, so it only seemed right that I planned my time accordingly to get the most out go the trip.
It goes without saying, a packing list is essential. I’m the worst when it comes to over packing – the type where I pack too much for a 3 day trip I end up not being able to close my case. So this time round, I’m under strict instructions to only pack essentials. If you’re anything like me and dread the whole packing processes, planning it out like I have actually makes it bit more fun!
Alongside a very in-depth packing list, I’ve included my plans for the various days that have been organised by the university and figured out how much time I have to site see. Actually not too much, but I’ll make it work. What always gets me excited for trips is researching sites to see, restaurants to try and galleries to go to. So of course I’ve spent hours searching the must sees – shock, the Eiffel Tower is on there, alongside the Louve and Pompidou centre.
Pinterest has been a saviour when it’s come to planning out my spread, so I thought I would share with you a few of my top favourites! PS I have a whole entire board dedicated to Bullet Journaling, if its your thing!
- This one includes a really simple but effective way to plan your budget. Working out the things you’ll need to be paying for and then allowing yourself the left over for anything extra.
2. Another fairly simple way of planning what you need to pack. I always find it helpful to split it off into sections like whats been done here.
3. I love this idea for when I arrive back form Paris as a kind of scrapbook way to keep track of what I got up to and little bits and bobs that I picked up along the way!
4. I’m obsessed with this title page! I love the creativity and freedom that bullet journaling allows and this is such a cool way of planning what you’ll be getting up to!
5. And lastly another way of planning what how to get the most out of your time on your trip. I find planning when you’ll be arriving departing to be really helpful as you can then work your activities around doing things on these days too, so that they aren’t just dedicated to travel!
I’m a sucker for a new creative challenge, and my bullet journal is my most recent. Alongside the traveling sections, I’ve started to put together monthly spreads and habit trackers which I’ve had so much fun creating. So watch out for some more blog posts coming in the near future for BuJo inspo!
All my love,
