When it comes to travel planning, we are definitely in the ‘play it cool’ category. There are pats on the back all round if we’ve booked flights a month before we leave, got accommodation lined up a few weeks before arriving and put together a general plan to get from the airport to the hotel. Obviously we pack our bags on the morning of departure, why bother doing it any earlier?
At the airport we are those cool kids who board the plane last, at the other end we are always swift to alight with only our small backpacks in hand. Once at our destination we are armed with little more than a map and a vague idea of the main attractions. We alternate between days of pounding the pavements until our feet ache, taking in whatever sights we happen upon, or casually whittling away the hours simply soaking in the atmosphere. Often these hours will be spent baking on the beach or people watching in the town square with a glass of wine in hand; basically living the life!
