As a child I remember sitting at Liberty Travel with my mom. It was in the mall, right next to the arcade I spent way to many hours playing Mrs. Pac Man and Paperboy in.
Remember that blast from the past?!
Man, I loved that game.
Sorry, I’ve been in a reminiscent mood lately. Anyway, we didn’t travel all that much back then, but when we did, I’m pretty sure an agent was involved for anything over a weekend jaunt.
Now I do all the leg work for every trip my family takes. I print maps, research flights, read reviews, compare hotel prices, even check the weather. For short weekend getaways, it’s fairly easy. I’d even call it fun, but as the trips get longer and more out of my comfort zone, planning becomes more time consuming. I can handle family trips to Disney or a week at the beach, but I’m starting to plan something bigger, something really different, and I’m thinking I may need help.
Yes. Help! Even in the age of the internet with every resource as my disposal.
I honestly thought travel agents were obsolete, but I’m changing my tune. I contacted one today and welcoming all the help the can give me.
Have you used an agent? Or do you plan all your own trips?
Note: More on this exciting trip coming soon. I promise. :)
