Sample exercise – Plan a trip

The sample exercise presented here is from approximately 2/3’s of the way through the semester in World Regional Geography.

Plan a trip (and imagine there isn’t currently a pandemic).

Your dream trip to a dream location you have never been to in another country (yes, it has to be a place in another country and yes, you could have been to the country, just as long as you have been to your dream location). 

You will submit an overview of your trip in about 250 words. You can use these questions to help guide your overview/plan, but they are not an outline, just things to think about:

  • What are the details of getting there (and/or back)?
    • do you need to request a visa or are visa’s automatic in your location for US visitors
  • What are the daily aspects you need to be aware of?
    • language
    • money
    • food & lodging
  • What do you look forward to doing there?

Now-a-days when I plan a trip I head to YouTube to get the nuggets of information that folks who have already been there have to share. But you also should check the country’s tourism department and other related official sources.
