Daily Prompt: The Happy Wanderer

What’s your travel style? Are you itinerary and schedule driven, needing to have every step mapped out in advance or are you content to arrive without a plan and let happenstance be your guide?

When I’m traveling, I have found the best experiences to be off the beaten path. I am a native of Washington DC which is a big tourist town (I guess that goes without saying). I often think about how tourist come here and miss so much of the real flavor of the city since they follow the circuit of every other tourist and they are warned of the dangers of the city. I keep this in mind when I travel. I love traveling without an agenda or schedule.

Like DC the best food and experiences are off the tourist track. I want to have the experience as a resident and not a tourist. I know it’s not safe to do this everywhere, but I want a unique experience that’s not on a map or agenda.
