When going on holiday you have two options:
1. Do all the tourist attractions
2. Wander aimlessly and see what you discover
In my personal experiences booking all the tourist attractions results in overpriced spots queuing in the heat with a load of tourists, for attractions that none of the locals do, to take a few snaps without taking in your surroundings.
Whereas wandering on holiday gives me such excitement, not knowing what treasures you are going to find, where you might end up, what you might see and who you might meet, no expectations to be disappointed by but just an adrenaline from the unknown. For me this is my ideal type of holiday. Normally in everyday life we have to plan everything to the exact detail in order to get all our tasks and responsibilities done in time where as on holiday you have the freedom of no responsibilities and there is something beautifully indulgent about wandering aimlessly. If this is too much for you and you are the kind of person who needs a plan, take a baby step and choose an area that you like the sound of e.g an ‘arty’ area, a ‘foody’ area then from their wander through it without planning specific places. Trust me it will set you free and holidays will be like never before! Give it a try! I DARE you!
For me being away is also the time to be adventurous in your style and experiment because you are away where no one knows you, giving you the opportunity to create an identity and a story around yourself, always wanted to own your own super yaught, dress like you own a super yaught, because why not!
