If you use would to describe your action in the future, it means that you plan to do it. But if you use it to describe something in the past, it doesn't mean that in the past you planned to do it, it means you actually did it. Is that correct? For example:
Whenever I would go there I would often notice many suspicious things.
It has nothing to do with planning or intention, even back then in the past. It's not even the past tense form of the present form.
Am I right that the meaning changes?
Also, is there any difference at all with that sentence and this one?
Whenever I went there I often noticed many suspicious things.
