Most people nowadays love to share their travel experiences in the form of adventure tips. Have you ever meet someone who doesn’t enjoy listening to these tips? That is hardly the case because people always want to make their life easier. For example, you can inform someone about your experience when you went to the same hotel that he or she is planning to go to as part of a getaway. You can happily spend the time to share what you did or the road that you travelled. However, there are times when one doesn’t like to listen to these planning tips. Do you know the reason why?

First, they hate information overload. Searching for details online is possible because of the internet. We can easily search for details of the place that we are about to visit and then see which one will complicate the whole thing. If you are going to New Zealand for example, you can find great hotels in Kaikoura through Expedia, and enjoy beautiful beaches and observe whales and dolphins in their natural habitat. Rather than searching online, some prefer purchasing guide books so that they can see direct advice from the people who happen to be on this part of the globe. After that what happens? You will still be left to experience the adventure. Because of that, you can think that we are indeed spoiled with these choices when we plan for our travel.

You begin to wonder how much details do we really need when we travel to a certain place? Which of the tips will be useful?  Which are the ones that will complicate everything? We cannot deny the fact that there is advice which is indeed handy. For example, it includes those towns with limited accommodation and useful directions. Likewise, there will be advertisements of a ferry that you can travel on. These are hard facts that can be encountered. What about other tips regarding galleries, amazing bars and other impressive places? Clearly, if you are not interested in bars or arts, some advice will not be helpful to you. The highlight of another traveler will be a waste of money and time for the others who don’t share the same interest. This is the reason why you should listen to people who have the same passion as you.

Another reason why you better not read travel planning tips is because you can further create surprises along the way. This is true for those who love spontaneity. Of course, we are not suggesting that you ignore all the details but a little help on how to get around is enough. This will include the amount of money that you should bring. Simply filter those that are useful and only listen to the ones that will give you an unforgettable experience.
