Having A Plan Is Not Necessary
I have done quite a lot of impromptu trips, but those had some form of planning too. If nothing, I would sort my stay on the way, get the local transport sorted, or check things out in general, but this trip had none of the above. I needed a break from work so booked a one-way bus ticket to Hospet. No hotel bookings, barely any articles around the place, no conversation with people who had travelled to this place earlier. And trust me, this turned out to be the best trip I've had in recent times. Got a decent homestay at a throwaway price, met quite a lot of interesting people, and a lot more. The whole idea of having a plan for everything is a big scam. You DON'T need to have a plan. Be it a trip, or life!
