There is nothing better than wandering around a city; a city that is brand new to you, or a city that you have known for years. I love wandering with no idea of what I might find, or what is hidden around the next corner.
I have the most terrible sense of direction so even If I do have a plan of where I want to go, I wander anyway. So so many of my favourite cities have made their way into my heart because they are the best cities for not knowing what you will find next. I simply love just to stumble upon a picturesque looking house, a cute lunch spot, a piece of art or a stunning view. I think these things are even more wonderful when you don’t expect to find them. So, what might you find when you wander?
The streets themselves may be beautiful (Valparaíso, Provence + Berlin )
The houses surrounding them, also (Cartagena de Indias, Buenos Aires + Varanasi)
Not to mention those famous features that you might stumble upon (Berlin, Rome + Rio de Janeiro)
Then of course, you are likely to find somewhere to stop, rest and re-fuel (Rome + Berlin)
And who said cities are always blocks of concrete? (London, Viña del Mar, Buenos Aires + Prague)
And of course, you may just find a souvenir to take home with you (Jaipur, Kathmandu + Edinburgh)
Do you like to wander in cities? What do you love to stumble upon?
