It may seem counterintuitive, but one of the best ways to reduce stress while traveling is to just plan less and let spontaneity take over.
I love that someone is actually saying this. Sure, plan the first part of your vacation. But leave some time for discovery, spontaneity, and to plan as you go. And you don’t necessarily have to leave that amazing place you found just yet . ☺️
There is another way: Book only the first few days. While I know for most travelers, particularly those with families, such an extreme lack of planning seems impossible, even unadvisable, I strongly recommend considering planning less, even if that’s leaving just a few days ope
Next time I’m in LA, I’m going to check out this super-short and super-cute railway. It looks like it covers about one block in downtown LA. It’s been around over 100 years, minus a hiatus in the 1970’s and 1980’s due to some “urban renewal”.
