Tips for your StormIt trip plan in Slovenia

by C:F Team on 30th March, 2010 at 9:10 AM CEST

We're glad to see that we already have our first submissions in the StormIt challenge, where you can create a perfect trip itinerary in Slovenia and win the chance to enjoy it. We're sure many of you are also planning to participate, so we compiled some tips that can help you get started with your trip plan and participate in this unique challenge.

Where to start?

Make sure you read the full challenge description on the StormIt page. You will easily find most of the information you need for your StormIt submission on the Official Travel Guide by Slovenian Tourist Board: www.slovenia.info.

As a first step, visit slovenia.info and get to know Slovenia by reading the basic introduction. Then, find interesting places and activities you can do in Slovenia. Once you choose what you'd like to see and visit, you can do a basic plan of how you'll get around and where you'd like to stay overnight, so you can plan your expenses.

The Official Travel Guide website also offers different interactive tools that can help you plan your trip, such as the Online Travel Planner and links to various Routeplanner tools. Also, don't forget to visit the Bank of Tourism Potentials in Slovenia website for interesting suggestions that you should include into your planned trip (at least one). These suggestions are mostly not realized yet, but we want you to be creative and realize them in your plan in any imaginable way. This criterion is very important for the judging panel, since they are looking not only for the most green but also for the most creative ideas.

You can also find more useful links in the Contest Resources box on the StormIt challenge page. We have recently added the Slovenia Brandbook as a resource and the STB and BTPS logos you should use on your solution poster.

Finding transport within Slovenia

You can find basic information about various transport options in Slovenia on the www.slovenia.info website. If you want more detailed information about timetables and costs of transport, you can also visit the following websites:

And don't worry if you won't be able to find exact prices for all transport costs; just try to make an approximation.

Need local help? Just ask!

When in Slovenia, you can always get useful information at one of the many Tourist Information Centers around the country. See the list of TICs to find links to websites that provide more information for cities you might want to visit.

And don't forget that you can always ask for more information about Slovenia and the StormIt challenge right here on our website. Dejan Krizaj, the StormIt Challenger representative, will be happy to answer all your questions. You can leave your questions here in the comments, or use the Questions box on the StormIt page. You can of course also ask your Slovenian C:F friends for help if needed :)

Preparing your StormIt solution

When you collect all the information you need from various sources, you can start working on your solution, which consists of two parts:

  1. a two pages document with a detailed trip plan for the judges to evaluate and
  2. a promotional trip poster (image) that will present your trip to C:F members.

You can find detailed requirements for each of the elements on the StormIt page. Again, if you get stuck during your solution, don't hesitate to ask for help or further instructions!

Ready to StormIt?

We hope these tips will make it easier for you to start planning your dream trip. The deadline for submissions is May 6, 2010 @ 5PM CEST, but we encourage you to submit your trip plan earlier, as you'll be able to get more exposure and votes with an early submission. Good luck!
