A weekend...I don't know where...


In a scheme reminiscent of the musical Paint Your Wagon ("Where are you going?" "I don't know...all I know is I am on my way"), Spanish startup Wonder Tour is selling packaged weekends to travelers who can choose to find out the destination 24, 48 or 72 hours before they leave.

The company's founders believe there are thousands of Europeans who want to get away for the weekend, but don't want to book hotels, airfares, transfers or any of the rest, and will put up with, or even want, a little mystery in their lives. 

For your €149 or €199, you get a Friday flight with Sunday return, all details arranged, and a hotel room for Friday and Saturday nights. Their "basic plan," the only one offered so far, includes destinations such as Cologne, Budapest, Paris, Porto, Birmingham, Morocco, and Mediterranean beaches.

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations

Surprises can be fun, but I enjoy researching a destination before I get there.  Still, I can see the appeal of the idea to a lot of people.

Rob, I thought of you when I first found this...it sounds like you and me: Anything to be on the road, hardly matters where!

The cost seems pretty reasonable too. It is a good idea because it exposes you to cities that you wouldn't of picked on your own. Sometimes those cities  end up being your favorites.

I think TG's destination page is like that too. I now want to go so many places that were not remotely on my radar.

If you want a thing done, ask a busy man.
