I am a planner. I can’t stand the thought of going on a trip, no matter how big or small, without planning out every detail in advance. I’m the kind of person who makes lists, checks things off, rewrites those lists… and then makes more lists. Kind of sounds like a typical grocery shopping day for me too… Am I weird? Maybe, but I truly enjoy it.
If you’re the type of person who loves planning parties and writes grocery shopping lists according to the layout of the store, you understand me. When it comes to a vacation, I love being prepared, I love saving money and I like knowing what to expect. You know that part in Harry Potter when Hermione, Ron and Harry flee from the Death Eaters at the Weasley wedding and then begin their journey on the run? Ron and Harry are like, “oh crap, that was crazy. I’m totally not prepared for this” and then Hermione is like, “Here, I already packed your clothes, and your cloak, and here’s some food.” Yeah, that’s me.
Once I get to my destination, however, I relax. I’m not that crazy person who says, “Stick to the plan! No time for that, we are scheduled for this and YOU’RE GOING TO LIKE IT!” No way, that’s not me. Get yourself there, then go with the flow and enjoy the trip. That’s what a vacation is all about!
This website is a place where I can share the tips and tricks that I discovered while planning and visiting a destination. I know how it is to search for specific, first-hand information and sometimes not find it. I aim to fill in those gaps. So If you’re anal-retentive planner like me or if you are just a person looking for basic information, I hope this site proves to be useful and you find that information you never even thought you needed to know.
