Healthy-dose of underplanning

  • enough leeway to allow getting lost completely (because you will! If you wont, your doing it wrong)
  • never underestimate a sketchy locals pigeon English ramblings! (an amazing source of one-off recommendations)
  • try not to book anything with a deadline… unless your chances of making that deadline are higher then a honey-badgers chances in a brawl!
  •  write lists of things to do, keep them essential as the best thing you will have done on your tour was never on a list.
