Based on the Recreation Phases of Clawson and Knetsch (1966) model of the recreation experience, they proposed 5 stages:
Anticipation: here I am planning a trip. Looking at guide books, travel websites, Google Earth and so on.
Travel to: Here we are driving, flying, taking a train or what ever to get from Home to our final destination.
On site: This is the vacation or business trip at some other location.
Travel back: Often tired, broke and full of memories, typically just want to get home to my own bed and Biscuit.
Recollection: Ah the memories, photos, video and all those memories. I typically will try to edit down video and photos and such into a 10-15 minute DVD clip to share with family and friends.
Think about your travel planning.
