How tough is vacation planning these days???
As a child, our vacation planning used to be planning the route on a paper map and marking stopovers. Later on, we started booking ‘all taken care of’ vacation packages. With the advent of the internet, most of our vacation planning is done online. Right from booking flights, hotels, car rentals and even planning the itinerary. This obsessive desire to cover the best places, get the best bargains and have a fantastic time makes us spend so much time online and put in so much effort reading reviews, blogs and forums. I have an information overload now and seems like I had a working weekend.
Grrrr… where is my coffee?
I would love to have a relaxing vacation one day. However, in the ‘do more’ age, all we seem to be doing is cramming as much as possible in one week. Vacation Planning becomes like another chore then. So much to do! Although I got to admit that this chore is much more enjoyable than doing the laundry 😉
What about you. How do you guys do your vacation planning?
In the last 2 weekends, I have read tonnes of tripadvisor posts, looked at thousands of online pics, created Pinterest boards and downloaded 2 apps on my phone. Inspite of all that, the most critical details of the planning are in a small notebook on my dining table!
Speaking of vacations, have you read about my one day vacation in Munich?
