“It is a complicated process. I use Excel for all textual data but things like photos and videos cannot easily be integrated with Excel. I print out important info and bring these documents with me. One time my bag got stolen while traveling, and I lost all the printout travel documents.” — Ming, 28, Project Manager, Backpacker, Hong Kong
“I don’t like to join organized tours, and I prefer to plan everything in advance by myself, even though it is VERY time-consuming… Also, I feel anxious if I can’t check my travel plan whenever I want.” — Kimberly, 27, Lawyer, Traveler, San Francisco
“What is the tool that I use to manage documents and schedules? My brain! Any other better ways?”— Rokey, 31, Engineer, Solo Traveler, London
"Looking for trip ideas? I use Google, Trip Advisor, Lonely Planet, and Pinterest. Yeh. I know. Lots of them."— Amin, 32, Technology Evangelist, Traveling worldwide couple times a year, Berlin
