Post Every Day, Rogene, Travel

Capricious Traveler

What’s your travel style? Are you itinerary and schedule driven, needing to have every step mapped out in advance or are you content to arrive without a plan and let happenstance be your guide?

I abhor rigidity when it concerns travel planning. The only two “planned” items on my travel itinerary are the arrival and departure dates. However, I do believe a certain level of preparation (i.e. emergency strategy)  is necessary before embarking on globetrotting adventures, sans guidebook, map or translator.

There’s a level of excitement one feels when strict, absolute planning is left by the wayside. Spontaneity allows me to drop “tunnel vision”; to break bread with the locals, partake in activities and immerse myself in the culture; expect surprises and build lasting memories.

My personal prerequisites for an enjoyable and memorable trip: flexibility, an open mind, discernment and a valid passport (if traveling overseas).
