I actually do pretty well in keeping my routine when I travel alone or need to work while I’m traveling. Pilates is so easy to do anywhere, my laptop comes with me, and I still have the desk work, morning reading, planner set up, and devotion rhythm in place.
If I’m vacationing with other people, though, those are special days and the routine goes completely out the window. More and more all I really want to do when I’m traveling is unplug, so I just let the demands of the day sort themselves out without a lot of structure. I do try to exercise in the morning, but instead of writing a schedule or to-do list I work on a travel journal in the Midori.
I actually deliberately left my computer at home last time I went to Japan and my phone only worked at the house I rented, so it forced me to connect with people to find out the awesome places to go instead of relying on internet reviews. It turned out to be a great strategy since Japan is such a welcoming and warm country. People told me about amazing restaurants, museums, neighborhoods, coffee shops, and places to go I never would have found otherwise.
