Trip planning system/app for consolidating info from books, forums, etc?

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to London, Paris and southern France with DH and 4 kids in May & June. I'm gathering lots of useful info from multiple sources: guidebooks, forums, and various friends and websites. I'm going to plan a proposed itinerary and then we'll adjust on the go, as appropriate.

I would like to put together a small file of some sort on each neighborhood. For example, for the Ile de la Cite/Ile St. Louis day I would include operating hours at Notre Dame, tips on which entrance to use, where to go and what to see when we're inside, recommended restaurants, helpful hints about a lovely walk nearby, etc. I'd like to do the same for each of the various neighborhoods we'll visit and have them accessible so that if we decide to go to, say, Montmartre for the day my info will be at my fingertips.

Another Mom on TA mentioned that she did this in hard copy form with a sheet or two per neighborhood. I like a hard copy and would also like to be able to input the data on my desktop at home then access it on my ipad or iphone (we'll be traveling with a couple of these) .

Does anyone have a good system for organizing all of the valuable info that is available and then accessing it?
