My RTW trip was planned out. I knew when I was doing things, when I was going to buy my plane ticket and my backpack etc and lastly when I was finishing up at my work. This is the same for the majority of current #RTWsoon planners as well.
The good news though is that she’s taken it in her stride and is using the great little severance package to go traveling now instead.
It’s the same for when your out travelling. Some times the unexpected is going to happen and you just have to roll with it. Maybe it will work out in your favor like it seems to be for Jeannie or maybe it wont. Just be prepared for the unexpected on the road and hopefully you will just end up with a funny story to tell later on.
