I think I am genuinely starting to develop a fear of not having any trips booked, as before I’m even home from a trip I’m already planning 10 more in my head.
I think what it ultimately comes down to is that I love having something to be excited about, something I can physically count down to.
Whether it’s my birthday, Christmas, a fun event or another awesome trip - I love knowing exactly how many days it is until I get to make new and incredible memories, and as soon as something exciting is confirmed I immediately start counting down the days.
With a job that involves a lot of sitting in front of my screen all day and night, knowing that I have exciting things coming up keeps me motivated to keep going.
But how do I countdown to all these amazing experiences?
As much as I love adding things to my planner, it doesn’t really have that exciting ‘countdown feel’ that I love - especially as I can’t write down the days until each event beforehand, as my diary would just be filled with hundreds and hundreds of numbers that make absolutely no sense at all.
Luckily, I have discovered the amazing (and free) Countdown+ app - a mobile app that does all the hard work of counting down to events for you!
The application allows you to make individual events for everything you have coming up. It gives you the option to add in an event name, a start date and time, the location and a photograph that best represents the exciting even you’re counting down to. You can customise events using different styles, invite your friends and family to countdown with you and receive notification as your events get closer. What more could you need?
Once you have added in all of your events you can see them all side by side, counting down the exact days until each one. I love adding in all of my travels and trips and each and every time I open the app I get excited to see how much closer they’re getting.
Currently, I don’t have many trips planned as it comes up to the end of the year, but with my birthday, Christmas and New Year just around the corner there is PLENTY to be counting down to.
You can download Countdown+ here.
