everyone travels differently and what might fulfill you might not be good for me. I cannot stand going on a bike trip with an itinerary - its so mechanical. It's like scheduling sex! Ya yer still going to have sex, but like a robot (which isnt the end of the world I know but c'mon)
I have always found that while traveling there are always little things that happen that are magical. Someone you meet, a random road you take to something cool. Years back my wife and I decided that we would make our entire trips this way; unplanned.
Usually we have one clear goal; get to Grand Canyon, camp here for two night etc and then we let the rest of the trip dictate itself. No expectations, let the road unfold in front of you.

Because there is nothing more magical than climbing into your sleeping bag not knowing exactly what brought you there and in the morning you'll wake up with the map and plan the next day.
