It was always quite an adventure to travel back then (I mean during the early 80s). We didn't have much access to information about airfares, hotels and sights to visit. The travel agency would be the best option. Or simply rely on a few travel brochures you could grab at airports and/or train terminals. So holidays were pretty much an exploration into the unknown. Yet, that's where the beauty of traveling lies, in my opinion.

Nowadays thanks to the Internet, I tend to read all the relevant websites to arm me with loads of information about a city we plan to visit. You can find everything you need with a single click of the mouse. There are tons of packages which offer the cheapest airfares. As well as promos offered by numerous hotels. Most websites are designed specifically to help you make your decision on choosing a holiday easy and as hassle free as possible. For instance, LetsGo2 accomodations to LaSource Grenada makes me want to take the first flight to Grenada.

Sometimes with the myriad of information available at our fingertips, there is a tendency to 'overbook' the activities during our holidays. Which is fine if you are quite an energetic person and can explore many places in one day. But more often than not, I notice we need another holiday to recover from the hectic and fast paced vacation.
