As students, we are all too familiar with the stressors of university life. Between studying for exams and writing papers, we often feel overwhelmed by the amount of work that needs to be done. In order to get everything done on time and with minimal stress, we need to learn how to prioritize our tasks and create a realistic plan for ourselves. But before even creating an actionable list of things that need to be done during the week (or month), it’s important that you schedule in some “you” time – whether it be reading a book or watching your favorite movie – so that you can unwind before diving back into your studies.

Find free time

  • Find time to study.
  • Find time to work.
  • Find time to relax.
  • Find time to travel and have fun doing it!

Travelling as a student is sometimes difficult when you have classes, exams, projects and all kinds of academic tasks to worry about. Finding a window of free time is the key to planning your trip effectively. You can use a calendar app to keep track of your class schedule, exams and other important events. To stay organized without spending too much time on it, try using one of the apps that allow you to connect with Google Calendar. This way, you will be able to plan your trip at any moment without compromising your daily organization.

It’s easy to forget about planning your next vacation when you have a lot of other things on your plate, but it’s important to find the time. You can use a calendar app to keep track of your class schedule, exams and other important events so that you know when there will be free time available for planning. You don't want to put off the trip too long or else you may end up missing the chance altogether!

Dedicate enough time for leisure

It’s important to make sure that you dedicate enough time for leisure. Travelling is not just about packing and planning your itinerary, it’s also about taking time off from school and work, being able to relax, unwind and have some “me” time.

As a student, it is important that you take some time off from all the academic requirements so that you can relax and unwind. During this time, it is also crucial to have some “you” time where no one else – not family or friends – has a say in what you do or do not do. If this situation seems familiar to you and your friends are constantly trying to influence how you spend your free time, travelling solo can be an excellent option. Traveling by yourself will let you indulge in things that truly interest you without being afraid of judgment or criticism from others.

  • Set a budget
  • Make sure to have backup plans in case anything goes wrong during your travels
  • Pack light and be ready for any weather condition


If you want to travel while being a student, it is important that you plan ahead of time. Your schedule will probably be very hectic and busy so it can be difficult to find the time for leisure activities. A great way to make sure that your travel plans are successful is by finding free time during which no one else has any say over what you do or do not do. If this situation sounds familiar, then travelling solo may just be right up your alley!
