I confess; I’m an itinerary guy. Weeks before going on a trip, I’m researching places of interest and restaurants and jotting down dates with approximate arrival times for all of it. Over the years I have discovered that when I make an itinerary, instead of “playing it by ear” while on vacation, that I end up seeing and experiencing a lot more things and greatly reduce the chance of mishaps or things going terribly wrong. Friends and family all seem to think “it’s no fun” when there’s an itinerary, most using those exact words. Just wondering what others here do--or not do--for that special trip. Like or hate itineraries? Thoughts?
