In general, we do not really plan well in advance. There is no doubt that we undertake something several times a year. Often we do have a period in mind if we want to plan multi-day trips. As far as destination is concerned, we usually decide quite impulsively. Sometimes we start by looking at the weather forecasts, sometimes we book airline tickets that are nicely priced. Sometimes …., there are so many different reasons to come up with. At the moment we obviously have a lot going on.
About 14 days ago, we got the chance to buy tickets for the Eurostar for a reasonable amount. We searched for the cheapest dates and, not entirely unimportant, arranged absence from work. Later we searched a hotel in London near the Thames. The plan is to walk a lot and find some geocaches.
Planning trips and executing other trips often run together. We did not even have the hotel in London fixed when we were already developed the next idea. Scuba diving is a hobby of one of us and to gain experience we are planning a trip to Lanzarote. That will be the second Canary Island that we will discover. Some years ago, we have been to Fuerteventura for a week and we are now wondering what Lanzarote has to offer. The tickets have been booked and we are still looking for accommodation.
