Planning a trip

travelers

This summer, we’re to visit Switzerland. The mountains, of course. We’ll have only five days there, we want to see a lot, so we had to make a tight schedule. We started with guidebooks, but we ended up collecting almost all info from the web or at least double-checking all info on the web.

The last time we assembled a plan online, we bookmarked everything that seemed interesting: accommodations, restaurants, timetables, hiking trail descriptions, etc.
With lumio, we did just the same, but with Swiss precision.

On websites of planned accommodations we highlighted what was important to us and added notes to ourselves. We selected and saved the information we needed from train timetables, we did not have to take notes or do the search again later. In descriptions of destinations we highlighted and saved the exciting bits, just the way we did with sticky notes in guidebooks earlier. Well, almost..., because now we took a step ahead. We read all visitor reviews and saved the useful stuff from those, too.

We worked together, we set up a joint lumio account, and whatever we found and saved the other could also see immediately.

We gathered so much info we could spend a month there... So this is what we did in the end: we rearranged and re-prioritized plans - by reordering the cards in our collections - until we had something that seemed doable.

But, of course, you can use lumio any way you want.
