Great Way to Use Pinterest for Travel

I'm sure others do the same thing, but I was quite pleased with myself for this idea.

As I mentioned, we are going to the U.P. and well.....we plan.  A Lot.  Feel free to laugh heartily, but it often involves spread sheets, schedules, and clothing plans.

Anyway, the whole process also involves lots of web page printing for places we plan to eat, stuff to see, stuff to do.  I showed Mark how to use the little Pin It button and now he's hooked, too :)

I thought that we could make a board for each stop on the trip and pin these things we usually note or print out.  Then with the netbook in the hotel or my iphone and the free app on the road, we can access all the information we want!  So not only a nice, visual collection of where we are going to be visiting, but SUPER functional as well.

And look how cute the baby owls are at the bird observatory, their picture is just fun to have.  If you're planning on visiting the U.P., hop over and see what fun stuff we've found to do!

Ooh, great idea! I'm a planner as well & have been known to make spreadsheets when preparing for a vacation (notice that is spreadsheets...plural). Thanks for the new idea & enjoy your trip!

We're going to the U.P. too! Third week of August. And I've done no planning whatsoever at this point. So I'll definitely check out your board, thanks, that's very helpful of you. : )
