7 Travel Vision Board Ideas For Your Dream Vacation

7 Travel Vision Board Ideas For Your Dream Vacation

If we were to ask what you’d do if money was not a factor, one of your answers would most probably be, “to travel.”

Traveling the world is one of man’s biggest dreams, and it’s a constant category in all of our products here at The Vision Cloud. 

People love to travel, and in a study by the U.S. Travel Association, 82% of their respondents say they travel to de-stress and relax.  However, only 35% of Americans report crossing out traveling on their bucket list of life-long things to do.

Why is this?  People would love to travel when they can, but why is it that only 35% are able to do so?

We believe it’s because people get so busy with their careers, businesses, and families that taking the time to plan and enjoy a vacation often takes a backseat to more pressing matters of real life.  And of course, money is also a big factor in why people can’t just pack up their bags when they want to and leave.

And so, if you desire to travel to a specific location, experience an adventure, or enjoy the unique flavors of exotic cuisine, what should you do to make this dream come true?  Well, we suggest making travel vision boards that can help you manifest your dreams.

Isn't it enough to imagine traveling to Bali, or maybe Paris?  Isn’t enough to simply say, “Someday, I’ll sit in a cafe eating a croissant, watching Parisians walk by.”

Well, as with any goal, such as earning a degree, starting a family, or earning $100,000 in a year, you need to create a specific goal and game plan to achieve anything you desire.

A vision board is one of the most effective manifestation tools.  It is used by professional athletes, entertainers, businessmen, and CEOs to achieve dreams, wishes, and goals.  Visualization is a powerful tool that can train your mind to experience wins, successes, and dreams coming true.

A vision board is like a magnet for your dreams, and this includes your dream vacation.

Start with making a physical vision board where you cut out pictures, images, and quotes about traveling.  Make a collage and mount it on a board, place it where you can see it every day, and take the time each day to practice visualizing your travel goals.

Envisioning the world can be challenging, so why not make a travel map vision board?  Create a map of the world using a cork board, so you can easily pin pictures, clipart images, and words on or beside the specific locations of destinations you wish to visit.

A cork map will give you a visual representation of all the continents in the world.  If you wish to travel to as many countries as possible, this is the vision board for you.  

Seeing the world map can help you choose which countries to visit and what experiences you’re still missing out on.  



What experiences and adventures do you want to enjoy?

Make a list of all the things you want to experience, such as skydiving, sailing, scuba diving, going to a yoga retreat, or staying at a luxury villa.  Look for pictures of these experiences, and create a Travel Vision Board for Experiences.

Include images of hotels, establishments, and other infrastructure that offer the adventures you’re looking for.  Do your research about where these activities can be found, prices, dates, and every other detail you need to know.  

Mount these details on your board to give you a clear picture of what it takes to experience these activities.

Trying new cuisines and flavors from different cultures is one of the highlights of any vacation.  Have you always wanted to try authentic Pad Thai in Bangkok?  Or how about Beef Rendang in Jakarta?  Or maybe Wagyu beef from Kobe, Japan?

If you love food, it can be your main motivation to travel.  What specific food and cuisines do you want to try?  

If food is one of your motivations to travel the world, why not make a travel vision board with a food theme?

Look for pictures of unique flavors and specific dishes you want to try.  You can also research the best restaurants and chefs who offer mind-blowing dining experiences.  

By doing so, not only will you visualize visiting the specific locations, but also feel the experience of every bite of food you can only have when you travel.



Statistics show that some people prefer to travel alone.  In a recent study on solo travelers, 59% stated they love traveling solo because they are not willing to wait for anyone when they want to see more of the world.

Another statistic reveals that 45% of solo travelers enjoy the freedom of doing what they want to do without having to think about others.

If traveling on your own is your idea of a dream vacation, then make a solo travel vision board.  

Did you know that 2 to 3 days of vacation can have significant improvements in sleep and can even improve reaction time by up to 80%?  Additionally, 80% of US citizens state they noticed a significant drop in stress levels after traveling.

If you’ve been overworked or you haven’t had a vacation in years, now is the time to plan your solo dream vacation.

Among the most popular destinations for solo travel include Costa Rica, Iceland, Mexico, and New Zealand, among many others.

Studies show that traveling is good for relationships.  A survey reveals that 52% of the individuals in the study stated their connection with their loved ones improved during a vacation.

There were 3 key findings in the study, which were:

    Some of the most popular destinations for family travel around the world include Bali, Indonesia, The Canadian Rockies, the Daintree Rainforest in Australia, Miami Beach, Florida, and anywhere with Disney World.

    For your family travel vision board, it’s a great idea to sit down with the kids and ask them where they want to go and what they want to do.  By doing so, you are ensuring that every member of the family will have their fair share of a great time on your vacation.

    Once you have the list of experiences your family wants to do, collect pictures, quotes, words, and clipart images of the destinations and activities to create your family vision board.
