Spending time off on your own or with friends and family is great when it’s plotted out and perhaps you have an itinerary, but sometimes the paths that you take which aren’t on the map, weren’t in a guide book, or weren’t necessarily scheduled into your day planner can lead to some fortuitous finds! Keep your eyes and mind open and maybe take some tips from the locals.
2. Not Taking More Pictures
After visiting the Hill Country region and seeing so many amazing towns and sights, you might regret neglecting your camera or your camera phone in your travels. Sure you might think your photo albums are filled with amazing pictures and what’s one more going to do, but you’ll kick yourself for not having the speed to snap up some photos of your travels when it’s time to describe just how magnificent it all really was!
