Check out Adventurefy.com to see a guest post called “How to Live Like a Tourist” written by yours truly. Here’s a sneak peak, and thanks to J.L. Childs for the opportunity!
The concept of living like a tourist in your own city might seem silly, and it certainly did to me until it came time for me to move far away from the city I had called home for ten years. During that time, I lived and worked with my head down, rarely spending time “seeing the sights” because there was no urgency to do so. Moving afforded me that urgency and in my final few months there, I decided to truly experience my city – to live like a tourist in my own backyard.
