staying flexible while traveling

I'm currently typing this from our hotel room in Phoenix. We just arrived here---two days sooner than planned. 
We were supposed to finish out our great southwest road-trip with a stop at the Grand Canyon before flying out of Phoenix. But at the last minute, we decided to nix the Grand Canyon. We spend hours putting together our travel itineraries and tend to follow them religiously. But it just felt like we were rushing to do it and that we would be checking off a box instead of really taking the time to enjoy it and do it right. Then the weather changed there for the worst and it didn't make sense to stick to our itinerary. That being said, with the months of work that went into making our original plans and all the last minute changes we had to add on, this whole thing has been a good lesson in being flexible and having a little more spontaneity. Thankfully, I have a feeling that we will find plenty to do in Phoenix. 


  1. It's so important to be flexible before and during traveling! Our trip to Ireland was delayed 4 days and at first I was really upset but after finally getting everything worked out, it was all fine! I have heard great things about Phoenix, I hope you have a great time!

    1. delays are the worst! yes, its hard to be flexible, especially if you end up missing something you had your heart set on but I'm definitely working on it
