I once had to spend 10 days on a beach destination soaking in the laid-back vibe on a family trip. I was bored to tears..
I realized two things:
One, Every traveler has their own preferences. Just as every person have their own food choice.
Two, I am never going to give travel agencies call for picking out my travel destination. May be for providing transportation and guides but not more..
When I travel, (if I am travelling that is) I make my own list of places to visit, set my own pace while traveling, explore places off the beaten track.
It’s rewarding..every travel becomes a memory I cherish. And also saves me tons of money knowing where to pay and where not to.
