Where to find information for travel planning?
How much time do you have planning a self-journey? Most likely, a lot and most of it we spend on finding information.
On the Internet you can find thousands of resources on any topic, but how not to be lost in such a non-sore set options? Today we will tell about the resources that use themselves and will be grateful if you share your comments.
Where to go?
As a rule, travel planning begins with the question &# 8220; where to go?&# 8221; Everyone answers it in different ways, someone saw beautiful pictures in the magazine, someone was inspired by the story of friends, and someone read about an interesting place on the Internet.
If you love travel and look for inspiration, it can be found on the following resources:
From the printed x magazines, this is of course Condé Nast Traveler, Geo, National Geographic Traveler and around the world.

Where to find information about visas?
The most reliable source &# 8211; This is a consulate site or a visa center that accepts documents. Unfortunately, these sites are not always given complete information or its appearance is not entirely understood by the average man, for example, as in the case of the UK visa.
If you need additional information, then the second on reliability, but the first to use and clearer the source &# 8211; This is a forum VINSKY. This is a truly storehouse of useful information for travel planning to any point of the globe.

Booking sites and hotels now a lot. Criteria for choice here may be two: reliability and price.
