Five days in five places or five days in a single place?

Is it better to spend five days in five places or five days in a single place?  

Some say…

“We went to three museums a day, and did a two-hour walking tour in below-freezing weather. Why do I do this to myself, you may ask? Because I don’t travel to relax. I travel to feel. I want to eat, drink, consume the city; learn as much as I can; feel the adrenaline rush of being in a new place, outside my comfort zone. It’s not for everyone, I get that. But when time is precious, I’m all for making the most of it.”

“I’ll admit, there have been times when staying in one place have been appealing and just what the doctor ordered to cure a stressed out New Yorker. But, way more often than not, what I want out of my trip is a whirlwind. I say trip, and not vacation, because bouncing from city to city, museum to museum, hotel to Airbnb, working things out as you go along make the journey part of your travel experience.”

“When I was studying abroad in London, we’d have trips planned every other weekend, so we could see as much of Europe as possible in a few short months. Looking back, I wish that I’d spent more time getting to know London itself, rather than constantly hopping around. And we totally blew it on how we approached the places we did go to running here and there.”

There is no right way to travel. You need to do what you are most comfortable doing. I usually plan my clients to do a bit of both, but always one country is my preference and even one region within one country. Get to know and remember are my guidelines.
