How to organize a trip

It is not difficult to organize independently an interesting and successful trip. All preparations can be divided in the following stages:

One more remark. Many people think travelling is an extremely expensive hobby. That is definitely not true. Usually a plane ticket is the most expensive part, but if you buy it in advance and look for the promotions the price could be reasonably low. On the other hand, accommodation and food in such places as Asia or Latin America is pretty cheap. I spent there on average 100-150 dollars per week, including local transport, which is usually the biggest expense. In more expensive countries, as those of northern Europe or Japan, I try to save money hitch-hiking and sleeping under canvass or at people from organizations like Servas, CouchSurfing and Hospitality Club. It works perfectly well.
