Embracing the Joys of Aimless Wandering

Embracing the Joys of Aimless Wandering
Share this: Conmigobags Conmigobags

My passion for embracing the joys of aimless wandering sparked from my tendency to lose my way. Once, I spent an hour circling the same 4 street corners in Paris, adamant about finding the Louvre without help. Eventually, I surrendered to a kind Parisian’s guidance, finally gazing upon the Mona Lisa. Parisians, I learned, warmly embrace lost souls who ask nicely.

Lesson Learned: Always carry a ‘Scout’ style compass and relish the joy of meandering without a set plan.

Navigating Solo Safely

While I relish solo travels, I prioritize safety. I check neighborhood safety scores on ‘Tripit’ and book accommodations in secure areas. Researching major attractions and downloading walking tours like those by Rick Steves ensures I have a general sense of a city. If something unexpected piques my interest, I gracefully pivot to ‘Plan B’. Even with offline tours, I sometimes delightfully find myself in uncharted territory.

Trusting Your Instincts

Setting out with no plan but an open heart and curious spirit is pure magic. Though I hear my mother’s cautionary voice, I still allow myself to explore. Staying aware of my surroundings, avoiding dark alleys, and sticking to populated areas at night ensures my safety. Equipped with a cross-body bag, a money belt, and a trusty screamer, I navigate confidently. Discovering hidden gems like a 2000-year-old Roman temple in Barcelona is the reward of wandering with abandon.
