Whenever I travel somewhere people usually ask me what I plan to do, and for the most part I have a well thought out itinerary of places I want to visit and things I want to see. But recently I’ve been loving one thing in particular – getting lost☺️ I love driving to a populated area where there’s a ton of restaurants and shops and just walking around for hours without direction! It turns into a fun game of “what’s this place? Want to go inside? What do they have in here? I’ve never tried this food before! There’s so many things to look at!” You’re constantly amazed because everything is so new and different from what you expected, because when getting lost you can’t really expect anything! While in Colorado Springs we stumbled across the cutest shops with vintage clothes, unique stationary, and even a few art studios; places we never would have gone to if we didn’t just park and walk around! So the next time you travel somewhere and are even in your own city, try getting a little lost – you might find some of the coolest places imaginable✨
