Travel Quote of the Week: “Put down that map and get wonderfully lost!”
A photo i took of a tourist seemingly lost on top of Mount Montjuic in Barcelona….
I often find myself getting lost in big cities every time i travel. Why? Because i am not good with directions. Why? Because i do not use a map. Why? Because i do not know how to use one!
But why would i want to get lost in big cities? Because i enjoy wandering around…i like the adventures and mishaps that goes with it…
But why? Because, surprisingly, i always end up exploring the off the beaten path…discovering out of the ordinary and unusual places and get to mingle with interesting and uniquely different groups of people. I get to hear their stories…and they get to hear my stories too….
And that is why, traveling without a map is often more exciting…. because it is by getting lost that I am able to tell a story….not just one but loads of interesting, funny and embarrassing stories!
As an unknown writer wrote, ‘Life goes on and the roads always lead to unexpected destinations…..’
So what are you waiting for? Let’s wander around the world! 🙂
