How do you plan your vacations? On your own or with a travel company? Planning on my own seems to be the most time consuming thing ever, and it's not at all fun.

I usually get a rough sense of days per city to plan itinerary. Then I plan detailed things to do within that city on a daily basis when I am there. Helps me keep things spontaneous and there is no burden of planning everything in advance

I usually prefer to plan on my own but I’ll start with an itinerary from a travel company and take the components I like. Where are you going? There are some places that I find aren’t worth the work of planning myself.
