Our 3-Month Travel Itinerary

After posting on Instagram about leaving on our big trip one year ago, I had lots of you asking what our travel itinerary was! Feel free to use this for ideas but I want to stress that absolutely none of this was planned ahead of time. We only had our flight to Thailand and decided we would just change locations when we felt like it. All of the flights and trains were purchased one or two days before departure to the next place!

Lots of people like to plan everything ahead of time. Anyone who knows me well knows that I am certainly a planner for almost everything in life, so I think that’s fantastic! Purchasing flight and train tickets in advance is likely to be cheaper than last-minute. So I’m not saying our way was the best way, but it sure was a lot of fun making these decisions on a whim. I loved the flexibility of being able to stay as long as we wanted in each city we traveled to. (Side note– Dillon and I originally talked about possibly staying in Thailand for one month, then France for one month, and then London for the final month. As you will see below, we caught the travel bug and that didn’t happen. Good thing we didn’t buy the flights for our original plan in advance!)
