Getting reading for travel is such challenging task. I am preparing for holiday. How much should we leave to chance? I am not only talking about choosing what to pack. Usually, I try to learn a few dozen words in the language of the counties we are visiting. This time, I have not prepared. I read histories of the places and recent fiction to get a feel of the place. I did not get to that step in my plans either. I am flying without all my usual preparation.
I spoke with some friends who travel frequently. "Leave yourself open to the surprise, the frustration, the unique experiences that only happen when you are open for them". I am going to do just that. I will keep a running blog.
