When traveling most people begin with a plan. They plan the destination(s), activities/sights to see, places to eat, etc. They get to their destination and there’s a strict schedule to follow – after all – they have a plan! So the trip becomes regimented and to the T.
Here’s my advice: take your plan, crumble that shit up, throw it in the trash and RELAX! Go with the flow. Let the adventure come to you – and then run like hell with it!
Many people do not understand the beauty in adventure. Adventure is not just visiting a new place, but really exploring the unknown without an agenda – a scheduled plan that tells you where to be and at what time.
Being a planner is boring. I know this because I’ve been a planner all of my life, yet I’ve never experienced more freedom, adventure and fun times as much as I have this trip the moment I threw my plan out the window.
Be courageous enough to try new things you never thought you would. See what the world has to offer, explore its nooks and crannies through roads less traveled. Learn as much as you can about your destination and imprint it like a photo in your mind. Culture is a beautiful thing – share yours and take in others. Be open and flexible for that’s the best way to explore the world – no plan needed!
