Right now, I’m on a trip that was supposed to be a lot more epic than it was, at least distance and location-wise. We’ve had plans to see John Williams in concert all summer. The concert took place on the west side of Massachusetts. We thought we were so close to the northern states, we could knock out the four we were missing (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts). As the concert approached, we still hadn’t decided what we would do and we didn’t come to a final decision until Tuesday beforehand. As much as we wanted to, and could have fit it all in, we realized we’d be way too rushed and wouldn’t get to really enjoy ourselves.
What made this hard was that we went back and forth a few times. At first, we thought, we can go! I even reached out to friends who lived in the northern states. But that same day, it was clear that it would be too much. Fast forward to Tuesday, when we thought, well, maybe we could due to a change in our real estate investing business….but it would be a long time out of town. While I was really looking forward to seeing those states, my immediate reaction was relief. It took the stress of super planning out, and freed me up to think about the things I really wanted to see. But I now have an outline of a future trip when we can give it the time it deserves.
I think a big travel muscle to grow is your patience and being ok with a change of plans.
Have you ever had to let go of or delay travel plans you were really looking forward to?
