My travel plans

When I’m not traveling, I’m usually making new plans to travel (I even have a dedicated blog category for that). So here’s an overview of how I plan and what I am currently planning for. Omakase traveling (traveling unprepared, with an open mind) and extensive planning seem a contradiction at first. However, some basic planning (in case of city trips) and some more extensive planning (in case of multi-day hikes), helps to let loose and fully immerse.

It never hurts to dream – so here are the places I would love to visit. I tend to already prepare future trips to some level (this sounds in contrast with omakase traveling, but it is actually not 🙂 )

That’s about it. I’m currently eyeing new trips for 2021 and am mainly considering a spring/summer hike of the Peaks of the Balkan and a late 2021 Torres del Paine attempt. However, that is all very much in early planning stages.

Additionally, as I have a family (wife, two kids), I make sure to plan my solo travels to places and/or countries where I probably won’t go with my wife and kids in the near future. Read my full post on planning holidays with wife and kids.So many amazing hikes, so little time. Why hiking? Read my separate blog post on why hiking and another on why I like to hike alone.

Why travel solo? Why these countries? Read my dedicated posts.

I’m a sucker for good hotels (here are some of my favorites). These are some I would love to visit some day.
