Someone might have different expectations compared to you.
The Right Location
The location is everything. It determines the type of vacation you’re going to have and the things you’re going to experience. Start by considering what your expectations are. Do you want to relax, or do you want excitement? If you want to relax, find a tranquil location by the beach or near a forest and truly unwind.

The Right Time

There are travel corridors and rules and regulations that will stop you from being able to travel to certain parts of the country or world. If you can, try and stick to a vacation location in the US.
