Everything seems to be better when it's spontaneous. Planning only seems to build up anticipation, which just heightens the sense of disappointment when things to go to plan.
However, if there's no anticipation, there's no room for disappointment. Things, at the very least, can only be satisfactory.
That's why you should get on Ryanair's two day flash sale, where you can buy flights for as little as £7 ($9). Get yourself on a spontaneous and cheap last minute holiday.
The Daily Star reports that the airline has cut flight prices by 25 percent on over 250 routes, meaning you could get to European destinations for £7.49 ($9.75).
The sale applies to flights from 1 September to 15 December, from Stansted, Luton, Gatwick, Manchester and Glasgow airports, so it gives you time to get the time off work and prepare your liver for copious amounts of foreign lager.
If you go to France, Luxembourg or Germany from London, you'll be getting there for less than it costs for a cocktail, which is pretty good going.
The sale ends at midnight tomorrow, so you're going to have to be quick.
Last year it was reported that Ryanair's flights could change altogether in terms of prices within a certain amount of years.
Michael O'Leary, Chief Executive of Ryanair, hopes that flights will be free within five years. Metro reports that the company's clever thinking is to make money by sharing income from airport shops and restaurants.
"I have this vision that in the next five to 10 years, the air fares on Ryanair will be free. In which case the flights will be full, and we will be making money out of sharing the airport revenues, of all the people who will be running through the airports, and getting a share of the shopping and retail revenues," O'Leary said at the Airport Operators Association conference.
It does beg the question of whether or not it'll be worth flying for your annual holiday sat with 17 groups of holiday punters, 20 crying babies and an in-flight magazine stuck up your arse.
It would be good for tourists who like to tick certain historical sights off their lists, but it is also an exciting prospect to have the ability to visit somewhere like the Vatican and then say: "Yeah, decent, wanna go for a pint in Athens?"
Ryanair reportedly carried 119 million passengers last year alone, with fares tumbling by 10 percent.
