Welcome to Plan-Pack-Go! We created this site for three main reasons: 1) to document our travels (those "I'll never forget this" moments vanish into the mist unless we write them down!); 2) to keep family and friends updated on our whereabouts; and 3) to help you.

Chris and I enjoy researching our travel destinations, especially for bigger trips with family. For each trip, two feelings inevitably emerge: 1) frustration at not finding answers to questions; and 2) gratitude to the people who take the time to document their travel online. We sincerely appreciate every nugget of information we find, sometimes in rather unlikely places. Eventually we realized that we should return the favor. If you can benefit from our site in even a small way, that's a win!

You'll find travel information on this site in two main areas: the blog showing all articles and the Trip Summaries. How are they different? When we venture out to hike, sightsee, or generally explore, we will blog about it. When we consider those adventures to be part of a bigger trip, we'll gather the blog posts together into a trip summary and add detailed information including maps, photos, preparation and planning, helpful resources, packing lists, and lessons learned.

To do a more targeted search for information, check out the Destinations menu, the Categories sidebar menu, or simply type a search term into the "Search this website..." box.  All pages are organized chronologically with most recent articles listed first.

Is there something you'd like us to include in the trip summaries? Do you have a question? Would you like to share your travel experience? Please contact us - we'd love to hear from you!

In the meantime, plan your next adventure, pack your bags, and go, go, go!

Julie and Chris
