I strongly recommend you don't use fast travel. A lot of secret areas you will only see if you manually walk to an area, and traveling lessens the grind you have to do later.
Bewildering Grace or whatever Dancer has really helps with XP and JP if you're lucky. So the grind there can be lessened on that front. Fast Traveling through areas you've already picked clean helps a lot.
