Are fast-paced itineraries really so bad?

Jump to last reply

I have read a lot of threads lately telling people their itineraries are too fast-paced. I've even contributed to a few myself, but it occurred to me that I have traveled fairly fast myself, on occasion, quite happily. Take for instance, my ten-month 2004 RTW, planned before I discovered Fodors. The organizing principle was Scotland to Saigon by rail, which with embellishments took seven months and 17,000 miles. It was great, but I did keep moving.

I won't bore you with the whole thing (if you're interested the full itinerary is at http://wilhelmswords.com/rtw2004/ ). But, if I had posted this itinerary for the first couple of months, would I have been shot down for moving too fast? (Nights, not days, in parentheses, all transport by train unless otherwise stated.)

Fly via London to Glasgow (2)
Train and ferry to Portree, Skye (3)
Bus and train to Edinburgh (3)
Train to Durham, drive to B&B near Hadrian's Wall (2)
Durham (1)
(Revisit) London (1)
(Note: once I realized I needed to get out of Portugal before the World Cup soccer fans arrived I essentially cut London, but I spent a week there the year before instead, and I once lived there for two years.)

(Revisit) Paris (3) - day trip to Chartres
Bayonne (4) - day trips to St. Jean de Luz, St. Jean Pied du Port, Pau
Hondarribia (1) - my night in a parador
Santander (1)
Leon (2)
Santiago de Compostela (2)
(Revisit) Porto (4) - day trip to Braga
Regua (3) - Duoro valley, mountain railways
(Revisit) Coimbra (4)
Salir de Matos (4) - day trips to Obidos, Alcobaca, Batalha

Afternoon in Lisbon, night train to Madrid, bus to Toledo (2)
Madrid (1)
Train (1)
Ronda (4) - rest
Gibraltar (1)
(Revisit) Granada (1)
Train (1)
(Revisit) Barcelona (3)
Train (1)
Stresa (2)
Rome (3)
Ferrara (2) - day trip to Ravenna
Lunch in Venice on the way to Ljubljana to see if I needed to return (fell in love with Venice).

I should note that at the time of the trip I was in my late fifties. Also, I have since returned to London, Paris, Lisbon and Venice, not to mention other parts of England, France and Italy. I have traveled more slowly than this, and these days I try to avoid one-nighters, but I certainly had a great time. Having revisited this itinerary, I think I may be less ready to tell others they are traveling too fast!
