What I am doing right now
Old habits die hard, I guess. I've always liked both planning holidays as well as shopping for them almost as much as I like going on them. It's just so much fun to imagine what your holiday will be like!
As a part of this routine, I will also be watching movies that are set in the countries that I am going to. I don't always do this, but I try to do it when I am going to a completely new country, but only a week or two before you actually go, since it really helps you get into the mood for the holiday. And you get to see what the place actually looks like a bit more than in photos too. Tonight I will be watching the old Leonardo di Caprio flick The Beach, since one of the countries I will be going to is indeed Thailand, where the movie is set and filmed!
(the garment in the picture is from Island Importer, one of the online stores I've been checking out for holiday garments. They have a nice selection of holiday wear, but actually specialize in beach weddings, and clothes for them. Now, I won't be attending a beach wedding myself while on the trip, but since I don't like to "dress down", even on holiday, their beach wedding selection fits my holiday style quite nicely. Too bad the selection isn't bigger though!)
