The Happy Wanderer

What’s your travel style? Are you itinerary and schedule driven, needing to have every step mapped out in advance or are you content to arrive without a plan and let happenstance be your guide?


I am not much of a planner when it comes to travelling.  So sometimes I miss out on good deals. But there is fun in taking some risk and making last minute bookings.  I have done free-and-easy trips.  The fun is that you get to soak in the local sights and sounds, take the local transport and explore areas that you would not get to see if you are on a planned itinerary.  (Usually, guided tours only cover places of interest)

But if I am visiting a new country I do some planning to avoid hassles.  Many a times, I could not get flight tickets or a hotel by waiting too long to decide. A good tour guide with a knowledge of the local history, customs, monuments and cuisine can be of great help when visiting a new country.  He can make your journey enjoyable and you can learn a few things about the place.

I have a lot of places to explore and countries to learn about and I need to pack my bags soon! I have taken flights and buses and one thing  I would love to try is go backpacking on  some adventurous trips, treks and climbs with groups of people.
