Here is an example of the planning that I have taken to just put one days worth of walking, site seeing, photographing and video taking together. I have listed all of the sites that we want to see on this trip and then pull them together into workable areas of the city that make sense to have an enjoyable day together. If you notice a McDonald’s on there, it is only listed on the map for the fact that they may have a semi clean restroom when we go by there, if we are in need of one then!
