A lot of our travel inspiration comes from reading “listicles” – you know, those now-too-common articles that are written in form of a list. So next time you read one of those “10 Top Things to Do” about an area you want to visit, start creating your own personalized list in 3 easy steps:
STEP 1: Open Google maps
STEP 2: Search the recommended place
STEP 3: Pin the site by hitting the SAVE button
Once you have pinned the sites, you are already creating your own itinerary.
The map will serve as a quick reference you can look up when you inevitably forget about the list when you are actually planning your trip.
Soon enough your next trip will be Already Planned!

Read all about our experience driving in the Faroes – an adventure in and on itself!
