There’s something to be said for traveling with no plans, no reservations, no transportation — just blindly plunging forward from one day to the next to wherever you feel like going, wherever a bus or a thumb can take you. Our advice is: If you absolutely, positively can’t be talked out of it … go for it!
But there’s a saner, safer approach, less “Indiana Jones” and more “Driving Miss Daisy” — you book a package where everything is already figured out, hotel rooms are booked, transportation is included and tours are pre-arranged. All you have to do is show up and enjoy. The bush-whacking vagabond’s daily concerns — where to go, how to get there, where to stay, what to do — have already been resolved.
