People love travelling. Regardless of whether the destination is local or abroad, travelling is just one of the most beautiful pursuits in life!
Different individuals have different travel styles. Nonetheless, everyone can agree that nothing compares to spontaneous trips! The awesomeness of randomness is displayed through them.
Sit back, relax and read this list of the best things about spontaneous trips! You might want to leave the house for one right after reading!
1 – NO PLANNING. NO HASSLE.
Without a doubt, careful and detailed planning is very vital for an organized trip, but oftentimes, it extends too long and stressful before you even get to finalize ideas.
Spontaneous trips do not have hassle in making a travel plan because there is no plan in the first place. That is the essence of spontaneity, right? You will just need to prepare a bit, like money, food and a few clothes if needed, on the same day you feel like going on a trip.
There are times when planned travels take time longer in planning than the trip itself. Spontaneous trips do not require lengthy squad assemblies because you can go the same day you thought of going on a trip.
2 – AVAILABILITY IS NOW!
What makes planned trips quite difficult to host and get pushed through is the schedules of everyone in the troop. Of course, some have classes, jobs, household chores and/or other commitments. There is a big boulder in matching schedules.
In spontaneous trips, the availability is now! If all of you are just at home right now, actually doing nothing important and just scrolling up and down social media, it’s the best time for a spontaneous family trip! No need to thoroughly check out each person’s busy calendar when everyone is obviously vacant at the moment. Well, of course, ask about the next hours, too, or days to come if needed.
3 – YOU CAN DO WHAT SUITS YOUR PRESENT MOOD.
For instance, you already booked a hillside hotel accommodation for a 2-day staycation next month. However, on the exact date of the trip, you do not feel emotionally well, so you’d rather stay home. Since it’s already reserved for you and the whole family has been waiting for it too, you still go even when you’re not in a good mood.
Spontaneous trips don’t let things like that happen. Why? Because in them, you can do what suits your mood. Yes! Since no planning is needed and since now is the time, the trip will be composed of what you feel to do, wish to see and crave to eat! Isn’t that relieving? It completely is. In that way, you will enjoy the trip more, and it will become like a free healing time.
4 – RANDOM FOOD DISCOVERIES
Everybody loves food during trips. No one skips that. Food just makes lovely sceneries lovelier and tired bodies energized.
Impromptu trips are a fun and fantastic way to the world of random food discoveries! No need to visit Mr. Google to search and look up famous restaurants. You can find gems of delectable food hubs on the way you’re randomly driving through and on the destination you’re about to see.
Imagine the freshness boost of the food if you see it first in real life before you see it online. It’s perfect for your book of spontaneous travel memories, especially if you’re a foodie!
5 – RELIEVE STRESS WITHOUT STRESSING OUT FIRST
More often than not, planning trips is stressful, most especially for the “organizers” of the team. That’s why they feel like unwinding ten times more than others on the exact days of the trip.
On the other hand, impromptu trips just let you relieve stress without having to stress out first. You may be feeling suffocated at home, so you invite your cousins living next door for a random drive to a beach. Instead of piling up a few more stresses before the trip, you will just have to prepare to get rejuvenated until you reach the itinerary.
6 – YOU WILL BE URGED TO STICK TO YOUR WALLET’S CURRENT ABILITY.
Well-thought trips need well-thought budgets. If you don’t have to really think too much about your pockets, you can still have a wonderful trip though!
In spontaneous trips, you will be encouraged or even “forced” to stick to your wallet’s current ability. Since the trip is today, you will have to use the amount you have today. It can restrict your travel activities if you don’t have a lot in there, but it can also be a worthwhile trip challenge that you might want to take!
7 – IT WILL HAPPEN FOR SURE.
The best among the best things about spontaneous trips is that they will truly take place. No backing out, no cancellation and no postponement unlike if they are planned. The random trip happens now or an hour from now, right after ‘planning’ for it, so it will happen for sure.
Surely, spontaneity has its own charm! Sometimes, you do not really have to exert so much effort before you go on a trip with yourself and with your loved ones. Just a bag of excitement and good vibes (fine, money too) can bring you delight on the road!
