  1. Oooo tough one!! I have a degree of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, so ‘chaos’ (not planned) makes my skin crawl. Personally I plan things (like trips and so forth) out the yin-yang! I hate to go with people who do things ‘off the cuff’ too, which is why I don’t like to travel with my family (or didn’t when one could travel). They’re so disorganized it makes me twitch! BUT. In things of a decision type nature (what’s for lunch, should I buy that really shiny pretty thing and so forth)? I’m all off the cuff. Yeah. Dual nature, that’s me!

    1. Hehehehehe… Funny, I’m pretty much the opposite. I plan stuff, because I have to (work schedules, appointments and that sort of things), but I much prefer to decide things at the last minute. When I travel with people, I plan certain things, but when I am alone, no one knows where I’ll end up… LOL


    1. I totally agree… I manage to plan everyday life stuff, because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t get things done. But when I am off, I make decisions as I go about my day. A lot more fun for me that way 🙂

  2. I usually plan ahead only for one reason – my wife likes it that way! 😁 She isn’t the type that likes spontaneous activity when it comes to travel or going out for an evening. If we go on a road trip, I will plan it to the nth degree so she knows what’s in store. I will have driving routes laid out: hotels lined up; side trips planned. Very rarely do we deviate from the plan, but on a recent long road trip we did, and I didn’t get much static over it.

    For me, I can do a basic plan – like a driving route – and then let fate take over. If something interesting comes up, I may deviate but then get back on the plan afterward. Last-minute changes normally don’t phase me. They have on a few rare occasions, but I can go with the flow most of the time.

    1. Same here… My first trip to Denmark just by myself, I had a loose plan, only because I really wanted to see a list of places. But the second time around, I had only booked my first Airbnb, in Copenhagen, and the rest of the trip was pure improvisation. Many people told me afterwards that they’d never travel with me if I didn’t plan more LOL But to my defence, I met people and I went to places I never would have, if I had planned everything. Good times!!


    1. That’s how I see things too… For work schedules, and important appointments, planning is fine. But when I have free time, I throw caution to the wind 😉 As you said… Much more fun that way 😉

    1. Isn’t it funny how minds can work so differently? I have to put efforts into following plans, and being spontaneous is more natural to me 😉


  3. When I was younger I did a lot of spontaneous travel. Hopping on a standby flight to New York City or wandering about in Buenos Aires. But now I prefer to have some planning. Not planned to death but some plans.
