planning for travel.

What’s your favourite part of a trip?

I enjoy the idea of being somewhere. The sights are great, the people are fun, and the adventure is tremendously exciting. But my favourite part is soaking in the mood of a place and imagining what it would be like to live there longer than just the few days that we happen to be passing through, what it would be like to work and shop and play and exist in a new city or country.

For my wife, I sometimes think her favourite part of travel is the planning.

She spends two hours planning for every hour of vacation.

I help out, of course, I book pieces and organize bits, but I’m often shooed out of the way so that she can find a better deal or sort out some logistical nuance of the trip.

It’s all great fun, but everyone has the part they revel in the most, right?
