Ahh! San Diego! That Cali vibes! This beach city is a mix of feelings. In the Gaslamp Quarter we feel like a home town full of great restaurants and a fun vibe. In the other side Mission Beach, that the wind and the smell of ocean makes you feel you’re in paradise!
Now that you already learned on TRAVEL GUIDE – HOW TO START (PART 1) how to find your destiny, the best flight and the best hotels, start to write your guide! Start with a blank Word new archive and copy your choices, without any worry about formating. In the end of the Travel Guide, I’ll teach you how to format for the best way!
Just copy and paste your possible flights, your possible hotels and now, your possible Cool Places!
DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE FORMATING, JUST COPY AND PASTE NAMES, ADDRESS, LINKS AND A RESUME, WHY YOU CHOOSE THIS LOCATION? WHAT TIME IT OPEN/CLOSE?
EXAMPLE: BAR LOS ANGELES ( 4$ BEER!) – XX SUNSET BLVD, WEST HOLLYWOOD – OPEN 7AM/MIDNIGHT- WED-SUN
Key Words are very important, useful and can save you from a lot of results that could mess up your mind!
Use SIMPLE Key Words
If you search on Google for : I WANT TO KNOW MOST IMPORTANT MUSEUM FROM CHICAGO
You will have a lot of results that actually don’t have the tips that you really want it…
Try simple key words on quotation marks “”: “BEST MUSEUM OF CHICAGO”
Now you’re gonna have some interesting links!
TIP: Quotation Marks ”” are essencial to search exactly the phrase you wrote.
New York, NY
Now that you’re finding cool stuff, you have to organize your choices in folders or in the same archive. If you’re going to more that one destination, is a great idea to separate informations, maps and stuff for each city in a different folder, so it would be so much easier to find and build the final Travel Guide!

Maps are really useful, even in nowadays , maps are the best way to locate yourself and plan distances and it’s a great tool to make walk hangouts on the city.
First of all, do a Google Account (if you don’t have one) to have full access.
Search for your destination and save. Do this with all (or most important places).
The location of the item you searched for will appear on the map along with some information on the left side. When you find the one you want to add to your map, click the Save to map link underneath the result.
Now you can change the name of your map to anything you want!
When you’re finished customizing your map, just click Done up at the top, then click on the link button and grab the URL to your map. I always use the Short URL.
Now you can email this link to yourself so you’ll always have it, and you can open this map up on your phone so you can take it with you wherever you go and easily look up directions from your current location.
