I was planning to go for a holiday - pienso ir de vacaciones, pensaba ir de vacaciones. Iba a ir de vacaciones. Does all these mean the same thing ? Ir in imperfect + a + infinitive seems very similar to pensar + infinite. In this case, do we use pensar in present tense or in imperfect (same as the way IR is used) ?
Pensar + infinitive is more colloquial and has that extra nuance of having planned it/made a decision. You can use it in different tenses the same way we use ir + a + infinitive.
