Travelling is a never ending joyful activity. There is always something left to see and explore and the places we have already seen and explored can differ depending on the season and from one year to the next. Plus, taking a different route to get to a familiar place or getting lost can lead us to an amazing new world. However, it can be a nightmare to planning a trip whether the aim is to attend an international conference, to organise a scientific exploration or simply to enjoy a week vacation. Planning is paramount, with some flexibility and common sense.
