2 responses to Independent Travel: How to Plan Your Trip

  1. Thank you for your comment Scott,

    Yeah, hopefully I made it clear in the post that each person may have a different way of doing it. I can be a little OCD about things but as a photographer I need to make sure I am maximising my time away. Originally I was very against planning indepth and a little bit of a ‘see how it goes’ kind of traveller but as I research places now I find many things I wouldn’t have known about just from turning up a place with no expectations. For me this is the reason I travel the most, seeing all the tourist sites like Angkor Wat or Shwedagon Pagoda is an amazing experience, but getting off the beaten track and seeing things and meeting people that are not part of the tourist circus or sometimes have never seen a tourist is what really gets me excited.

  2. Some nice points in here.

    The way I “plan” is this: See a map of the country/area I want to visit. Find the places I’d like to go. See if there are roads or train tracks between these points. Get a feel for a daily budget. Add 25%. Go . . . .
