Reduce Travel Stress with the MINDMAP Trip Planner

The Mind Map Trip Planner
With the holidays fast approaching, many will take a vacation to go visit family or just get away from work. For most of us, the few days before traveling can be quite hectic. Checklists help but they are often too busy and too long.

An alternative is a mind map trip planner. With a mind map trip planner, not only can you capture to-dos, but you can also incorporate all the important information and resources within a single mind map.

Here’s an example mind map trip planner:

Notice how the mind map, unlike a checklist, presents an uncluttered view of your to-dos. More importantly, it also serves as a trip dashboard from which you can easily access copies of airline tickets, web links to Embassies and travel sites, notes on contact information and phone numbers, and more, all in one mind map.

I hope this mind map trip planner helps make your travel planning more fun and less stressful.
