We, my wife and myself have been travelling for a good many years. I have learnt over the years and by experience that to plan your trips is such a way that you ensure that you spend atleast 5-7 days at your destination. This is in relation to touring through a new country, by this I mean, instead of say, stopping one night or two, you should spend more nights in the same place. This obviously means you cant see as many places in one trip. Hence the need to plan and prioritise what it is you want to see, rather than rushing from place to place getting worn out in the process and missing the benifits the place has to offer. Quite simply, slow travel, when you get home you will feel refreshed and recharged.
We are currently taking a year off, living in Southern France and exploring this part of Europe, slowly.

Good to hear from you again. I agree with you that one should spend at least 5-7 days in a destination. We use to travel a lot and find that 4 nights (5 days) is the minimum to really settle down and enjoy a place. We are going for 2 months holiday in Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia and Guangzhao in April. There is so much to do, booking flights, accommodation, places to visit, where to eat etc, but it is all part of the fun in travelling. Would love to hear your travel adventures in Europe.
