Many of us have had the nightmare experience of lugging around too much luggage, waiting in the baggage claims area, trying to cram too many activities into each day, and generally being so stressed that we need a vacation when we get home.

Instead, simplify your travel.

Over the past few years, we’ve posted many of these tips individually. But this is a nice, concise summary for seasoned as well as budding travel junkies. A few particularly lovely tips:

  • Don’t overplan your trip. Keep your travel itinerary fluid, so that you can soak up the atmosphere in each place. Leave room for the serendipitous and when plans don’t work out, treat it as an opportunity!
  • Smile a lot and talk to the locals.
  • Eat, eat, eat and savour the flavors.

In short: simplify and succumb to serendipity!
