When I’m planning a trip (especially longer vacations), I always read up on the place I’m going to visit. Roughguides, DK Eyewitness Travel guides, Wikipedia and Google: my friends in planning.
While I read, I also keep spreadsheets and google maps where I mark all the addresses and places that catch my fancy.
