Are you in that sweet spot between getting back from a trip and daydreaming about the next one? Here at Anywhr, we’ve laid out 5 questions you should ask yourself before jumping onto Google to search for the best trip deals for your next vacation out of town.

1. How can I break out of my everyday routine and feel motivated again?
Is the reason you’re craving for a next trip because you’re feeling worn out with your current routine and you’re looking for anything that can rekindle the motivation you once had?

Plus, the daily scroll through social media doesn’t help. Instead, you’re just getting green with envy as you take in all the photos of your friends on vacation, thinking about just how did they manage to get so many days off from work -- hang on, Rachel is STILL in Paris?

Sometimes booking a trip overseas gets you something to look forward to whether it's a weekend getaway or a 2 week adrenaline-fuelled adventure. We all deserve a break occasionally, and leaving town to explore a foreign land always seems to do the trick!

2. I know I’m itching to explore somewhere.. but do I know where that next destination will be?
Think about it, have you found yourself Googling for the world map and stared at it thinking about which destination you should head off to next? You know you’ve caught the travel bug, but sometimes you just need someone to tell you where your next adventure awaits.

3. Would I even have time to plan my next trip?
You know you’re keen to get out of the daily grind and squeeze in an experience or two as a break. But between meetings and deadlines whether you’re still in school or working full-time, planning for it is what puts you off.

Wish someone who knew what you liked could just plan the whole thing for you, fit it into a handy go-to Travelogue and you'd just have to show up at the airport?

4. Am I ready to brace through the large crowds overseas again?
This is one of those rare days when you’ve managed to get as far as clicking to the checkout page of one of those sites that claim they can get you flights for as low as $10.

But then you stop to think about that trip to Bangkok when you felt overwhelmed by the crazy crowd at the Chatuchak weekend market. Or that vacation to Santorini when you waited hours for tourists to get out of the way for your perfect Instagram shot?
