One key to awesome trip planning is to be sure to mix and match different activities and locations.

If you’re going to five waterfalls in a week, that might be just a little bit much. And in a place like Southeast Asia, it’s real easy to get templed-out. You go here and see a temple, go there and see a temple. Next thing you know, you’ve seen a bazillion temples.

Also keep your fellow travelers’ tolerance levels in mind. I know I have a lot higher tolerance for temples than Tim does, but I always did try and keep it varied. You know, one might be Taoist one might be Buddhist, one’s in a cave, one is really modern with funky cartoony figures. So I always tried to keep it something different, even within the temples that we were seeing.

Even if you have a single focus to your trip, make sure you sprinkle a few other things in-between, whether that’s a hike to a waterfall, a boat tour, a night markets, music and dance performances. Whatever activities the place you’re visiting has to offer, make sure you explore them all.

See you next time.
