Vacation Planning

So I am in process of planning two big vacations. What I cannot do without is a notebook. I have three dedicated notebooks for my trips - where I write down, and tape in, anything to do with the trip.

1) My trip to Paris. This is next week and I cannot wait. I am going with 6 of my girlfriends. Of the 7 of us, 4 turn 40 this year - so we are celebrating. A whole week in an apartment in the City of Lights - without kids or husbands. I am sooo excited. For this trip I have all information in a pretty travel journal with tabs. I have sections for shopping, eating, sightseeing, logistics and other. I have either written down information or cut and pasted information in. I plan to bring this with me on my trip.
2) DisneyWorld. We are taking our girls on a trip to Disney in November. I have been planning this from last February. I have a simple spiral notebook that I have used to write tips I have heard/seen, all of our advanced dining reservation confirmation codes, etc. I have even started to paste in maps and such.
These notebooks are the way I stay organized, and have all the information I need in one place. That is what works for me! For more tips visit rocks in my dryer!

We are also planning a trip to Disney (we get to go in January 2009). I have subscribed to many email newsletters and read the "Disney Mom's Panel" almost daily. Anytime I find a tip that I want to remember I just copy it from whatever document it is in and paste it into a word document I have on my computer. I have an entire folder dedicated to different items for our trip.

Have fun!

Blessings-Andie

Ohh Paris! That should be so fun! The apartment sounds neat. How much did one of those cost? Have a great trip!

Those are both trips that require much planning! I'm sure you'll have a great time at both (sniff, I used to live in France for awhile.) Have a nice weekend!
