The Emotional Stages Of Planning A Vacation

Wait, the hotel costs HOW MUCH?!

1. A seat sale??? BOOK IT!!!

When you find a travel deal you can’t refuse, gather up all your friends, and ready that credit card. Book it immediately before someone else does! The whole booking process will feel exhilarating and even more exciting once you receive your confirmed itinerary.

2. Okay now, it’s time to plan! So many possibilities!

By now, daydreaming about your upcoming vacation is all you can do! Your mind is jumping from one thing to another—what OOTDs to pack, where you will go, what you will eat, where you will stay. There are just so many things to think of and you can’t contain your excitement!

3. Wait...the hotel costs how much?!

6. OMG it’s tomorrow, I can’t sleep. I’m so excited!

You are freaking out. One more sleep and you’ll be in the airport ready to go. You are so darn excited that you begin to cry and laugh at the same time, and everyone around you thinks you’re psycho, but you just don’t care. The trip you’ve been waiting for and planning for is finally within reach!

7. I’m finally here and it feels like HEAVEN.

The place is beautiful and it is everything you imagined and more. 

8. This is so much fun! I don’t care how much this is all going to cost me!

You are loving every minute of your trip! Enjoying every bite, every new sight, and every addition to your wardrobe. For now, your credit card is a sacred piece of plastic with no responsibilities tied to it at all...

Until you get home. #PATAY
