I have spent hours comparing one flight deal to another, sizing up hotel accommodations, and looking for the best tours on the cheap.
I do this because enjoy orchestrating my own unique travel experiences.
That might mean arriving in a favorite city, renting a car to check out some of the lesser known areas, spending a night in an agriturismo or room at a bed-and-breakfast, taking the rail to another city, and a mix of guided and self-directed tours.
The more varied and off-beat, the more interesting!
However, here’s the truth.
Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming.
