Travelling without a plan keeps you healthy

–          Mahesh Hegde

Most of the times when I or we a group of friends plan for a trip, IT FAILS, it fails miserably. Probably it never takes off. So my policy about a travel is – Never plan. I would like to quote an incident when we were in 3rd year of engineering and we all friends Planned a trip to Goa. The idea was first brought up by a friend who was the first to pull out of the plan then the rest of them followed. I am sure most friends who planned for this trip and reading this will know who I’m talking about.

When you do not plan a trip you are like having an open mind to go anywhere and do anything. So there is an element of surprise when you do not plan. In addition to it, there is also the excitement of what is going to happen next. This excitement keeps your tempo up and the blood pressure slightly higher than normal so when there is blood circulation in the body is good, which in turn keeps you healthy.

So if you want to be healthy travel without a plan. This, I feel is an extension of the famous statement “A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” by Lao Tzu

I modify the above quote and say “A good and healthy traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.”
