When I'm working out the shortest route to visit as many county seats as possible (see my blog) and still find a Marriott property where I can end my day, planning is critical. Sometimes I feel like the traveling salesman in the old math problem who must visit each city once and only once.
On an overseas trip, I want to know all the thing I must see while still leaving time for discoveries. That always means a lot of research and planning. I find it makes for a better trip.
The time I use for planning a leisure trip will differ greatly depending on where we are headed as well as if using points or paying for the trip. Places within the U.S. I normally can book relatively fast and even quicker if we have frequented the area before. International travel I will spend more time looking into hotels, airline connections/airplane types and airports we will fly into and out of that are near places we want to spend time.
When using points for either hotel or plane I spend more time searching for the best days to get the best bang for the point.
Confused about the meaning of the word LEISURE.
I thought, when the definition was first given to me, it was a "fantasy".
If it is a real "state of mind" I am hopeful I can experience it and will put it on my "bucket list" immediately
