Most of us love traveling. We enjoy visiting new places and exploring different countries. Travelling, be it for holidays, or work, requires intricate planning. Finances need to be sorted, groups need to be decided, and in the case of foreign trips visa procedures need to be fulfilled.  The planning process never ends.
