When it comes to traveling, I’m a terrible planner. Figuring out the logistics of going from one place to another leaves me flustered and frustrated to the point that I avoid planning at all costs. For my next trip, however, I’m going to give Plnnr a try.

Plnnr asks you for a couple simple preferences and a location and puts together a full itinerary for a trip to any of 18 cities around the world.

To get started with Plnnr, you can login with your Facebook account, choose a destination and dates, and then the mood for your trip. First, you chose a theme, choosing between outdoors, culture, “with kids” and a best-of selection of activities. After that, you set the “Intensity” level and the “Luxury Level” and you’re all set – Plnnr lays out your entire itinerary.

I gave Plnnr a quick test run for San Francisco – a city I recently moved to and still feel a bit like a tourist in – and it put together a great looking itinerary…that I may just follow this weekend!

As you can see, the entire day is plotted both as a schedule and as a Google Maps mashup, taking into account travel time, whether walking or taking a cab, and time at the attraction. Plnnr creates a day-by-day agenda for your trip but, if the itinerary generated doesn’t suit you, you can change, add and subtract attractions to customize your trip.
