An Unplanned Honeymoon: a video by da-AL

How to not plan your honeymoon and have the best one ever! The Toastmasters assignment required me to ‘get personal,’ so here’s my speech…


Do prefer unplanned or planned?

  1. What a great story and your speech/story was wonderful! Quick question…was phone guy planned to show you how to deal with distractions? No matter the answer, you did very well lol I think I would’ve had to say something!

    1. Thanks much, Kathy 😀

      Phone guy was neither planned nor intentional. However it was during a Toastmasters meeting that meets during work hours, in Federal Aviation Administration

    2. Sorry- pressed reply by accident. Was just saying that many of our members are on work day breaks. Also, such interruptions are good experience for ‘real’ speeches. You are sweet to care 😀


  2. I’d like a mixture. I never go anywhere far without a plan, if I don’t have a plan I get so upset and panicked and I’m not fun to be around. On the other hand, I don’t plan ALL the details; like when I was in China and I ended up going to a panda research centre and despite all my planning and doom thinking I got to hold a panda cub. So: both. Plan the trip and leave enough windows open for surprised to fly in 🙂

    Btw, you have a really natural way of telling a story. You’re enjoyable to listen to and look at.

    1. Samanrha, you are just wonderful! 😀

      Your idea of planning with some flexibility is perfect- the most important thing is to know what makes us happy and to appreciate our individuality. Too often I’ve allowed myself to become miserable over believing how I ‘should’ or ‘shouldn’t’ think and feel, while I’m at my finest when I accept myself.

      Next, you’ve done wonderfully at pointing out how essential flexibility- gratitude in a sense- is to having a great time no matter what we’re doing.
