There are instances when you don’t want to fully plan
every detail of your trip. It’s either due to the lack of time or you’re too
lazy to do it. For some people, not planning ahead would be terrible for the
trip. However, there might also be some good things that will come out of your
to plan every detail of your trip.
You won’t know what will happen
When everything has already been planned, you already
know what to expect. The trip becomes less exciting. However, if you don’t
even have an itinerary, everything is up in the air. You’ll feel even more
excited to continue the trip because you don’t know what’s going to happen
next. It won’t be perfect, but it will still be fun and memorable.
You will learn from it
The unplanned trip will most likely be far from
perfect. It’s what makes everything more special. Even if you ended up
committing mistakes, you will learn from them. The experience will teach you to
become a better and more independent traveler in the future. When faced with similar
situations, you already know what to do. You won’t panic anymore.
You will meet new people
When you planned every part of your trip, you don’t
need anyone to help you. You already know which bus to take, or you might have
even reserved a private car to take you to different places. You won’t get lost
because you know the way to your destination. When you don’t plan the trip, you
might have to talk
to the locals and ask for help. It’s an exciting feeling if you can
interact with people who can help you because you don’t have any other choice.
In most places, a lot of them are willing to extend a hand. You just need to
ask. You might even forge lifelong relationships after asking for help.
You can go any time
When you always make it a habit to plan every detail
of your trip, some of them don’t end up happening. When you can’t plan well,
you worry about what will happen. As a result, you decide not to pursue the
trip at all. However, if you don’t plan anything, you will continue the trip
regardless. Even if you only thought about going on the trip at night before,
you will still make it happen. Your impulsiveness might not be a good quality,
but in this regard, it’s useful.
It doesn’t mean that you don’t plan your trip at all.
If you’re heading to a destination for the first time, it’s helpful if you
learn parts of it. You might even avail of some discounts if you manage to
prepare several months ahead. However, there’s no need to plan every single
detail. You also want to have that feeling of surprise. You might feel worried
at first, but you will love the experience. You will also have memorable
stories to tell to other people about your travel experience.
