Enough and Everything when Traveling
ENOUGH and EVERYTHING Do.
But When do you know it's enough when you're traveling? It's enough when you can't zip your luggage. When you think you have "enough", remove one whole outfit.
When you try to do "everything" when you travel, because you think you can't get enough; you end up with not enough. Scratching your head again, right. When you try to do everything, you end up with not seeing enough; because everything is a blur. Plan down time to absorb what you've seen. That gives time to enjoy it, remember it and then you will have had enough.
Example (notice that's another E word).
We're traveling to Spain. I've never been there before, I know we can't see everything or go everywhere, but it will be enough because we're planning.
Depart on Monday, arrive Tuesday...........beyond checking in, adjusting to the time, and doing a bit of grocery shopping (for things like coffee and maybe snacks), that will be enough. Wednesday we'll explore close at hand in order to get back to the condo and rest and Thursday we'll pick up a friend and explore on the way back from the airport. Friday will be low keyed and a brief day visit somewhere in preparation for a big day on Saturday, Monday will probably be another big day of touring.........see with time in between to think and chat about what we've seen.
Pop in Often, remember Menu Mondays for dining tips, Traveling Tips on Thursday, and any day for vacation destinations.
