I’m sharing with you my favorite Excel spreadsheets which relates to a plan the plan theme. This excel file has no formulas but it highlights the flexibility and fun you can have when formatting Excel. The file represents a travel agenda I developed for a Las Vegas adventure for my visiting extended family from France. This is not a difficult file to create and reason for sharing is to inspire you to have more fun with planning your next travel adventure with a focus around the meal periods.
When travelling abroad, you can easily be fatigued by the jet lag and over stimulation of senses. Having enjoyable meals at regular times is key element of anyone’s vacation. It represents the culture and while on vacation can be thoroughly enjoyed if adequate time is planned. Over scheduling during a vacation is problem, particularly for those who travel through multiple time zones.
The travel agenda I recommend shows the meal option for everyday and provides ample time between activities to just chill. You’re on vacation, you need time to unwind and relax. However, for those who travel distances, there is a balance and a need for discovery. Planning the plan helps to achieve a delicate equilibrium of a recharging and energizing experience.
This brief video is not technical, although I’ll always try to slip in a few Excel tips. I hope to open your eyes to the opportunities Excel offers with formatting. This blog is not about formulas, however, as you watch the video, please keep in mind that amounts per day could be added to provide a reasonable estimate for activities cost – that’s the true power of Excel.
