Finally, our departure is coming this weekend. I’ve been preparing for this and that as usual, that’s true, but actually I haven’t done much « hotel arrangement ».

We only booked hotels in Paris where we will be staying on the day of arrival (first day of the trip) and the two days of departure (last two days of the trip).

I’ve been writing down my various travel arrangements in Evernote since I introduced the Mac Kleinto-based Evernote, but this may be the first time I’ve traveled with so few records in Evernote.

Rather than « no reservations, » it might be more accurate to say « hard to make reservations. »

It’s true that I’ve been planning my trip and visiting schedule quite well as I’ve written in my diary so far.

However, this planning is mainly about « understanding the location and area of the village », « deciding on an efficient route », and « making sure not to forget the places to visit », and although we will act only in this order, we do not necessarily expect to be able to digest the schedule in this schedule.

This is because there is very little information about each place you visit, and when you do visit, you may find that it is actually very small and you spend less time there than you expected, or vice versa, that there is so much to see that it takes more time than you expected.

Therefore, it is difficult to book a hotel in advance because it can happen almost every day that you could have gone further or not made it at all.

In addition, it is difficult to find a hotel on the internet in rural France.

So, I think the best thing to do is to search locally.

As a general rule, we dive in locally, but now it’s a given that the Internet is available everywhere we travel. Last year was the first time I experienced this and it was an unknown quantity, but I’ve already experienced comfortable internet travel on the road many times.


I’d like to use this one, too, because it seems to be able to search for nearby hotels using GPS.
