I've noticed over the past year that many people plan out their days for their vacation, sometimes hour by hour. I know it depends on the person(s) involved and the extent of planning they require and expeditions they've booked, but so far I haven't made any sort of detailed plan of places to visit on Kauai in our 2 week visit in mid-July.
Is it a mistake not to have anything written down and mapped out for day-by-day plans? I'm taking two guidebooks, printed info I've found at Tripadvisor, and will have my laptop at the condo to consult; however, I don't want to plan everything too rigidly because so far I've been the major player in finding airfare and the condo, renting the car, and obsessing about the trip (in a good way) by reading this forum. I'm pooped! I can't wait to just get there and relax!!! LOL
