The Wanderings

I think when Adam and I get married we should change our name to Mr and Mrs Wandering.

It seems like every time we go on holiday, we kind of forget to plan it. I mean, we plan where we're going to go as in what country, region, town, accommodation - that's the bit I find stressful. But what we do when we get there? That's usually left up to chance. Which I love, it's my favourite way to travel, the real adventuring kind. Set out in a car or on foot and just get lost.

Some of the places we ended up while traveling in Tuscany, I can't even remember the name of. We went from town to town, walked up the highest hills around and back down again to pinpoint another location on the map and say "let's go there!"... "sure why not".

My mum gave us some Tuscany guide books and we didn't open them until the night before when we were sitting around the fire thinking about what to do the next day. 

I've traveled with people who want to tick off all the land marks, all the museums, all the sights to see. It's not for me I don't think. Having no plan can be a bit on the stressful side, don't get me wrong, but it does mean that you occasionally stumble across a real gem. 

What kind of traveler are you? Are you a planner, or do you just wing it?
