8. Rigid route planning
Sometimes novice travelers believe that thorough planning of the entire route, calculating all the transfers and stops, ordering all the tickets in advance will protect them from surprises and stress.
But more often it turns out the other way. The unforeseen circumstance can appear in the most unexpected moment, which will bring down your whole elaborate plan to a house of cards. Therefore, it is necessary to plan, but without too much fanaticism. It is better to leave some place for maneuver in order not to be nervous about any delays.
