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
Austin City Limits Music Festival (aka ACL) put together a pretty nice page of stuff to do while visiting Austin. As a local, I’m going to use this as inspiration to get out there and do all the things.
On my Austin to-do list, this “monumental work, a 2,715-square-foot stone building with luminous colored glass windows, a totemic wood sculpture, and fourteen black and white marble panels” looks amazing!
