Isn’t it the truth?!
It never ceases to amaze me when I’m on a trip, or recently returned, and I think that I’ve done a great job learning about the country. I’ve explored it, eaten in it, talked with locals, and done as much as I possibly could in my allotted time. Then….wham! Someone says, “Oh, Did you go to fill-in-the-blank?” What? I missed something. Something good enough that you are now telling me about it, only a few hours after my return?! Damn!
And even if it’s not in that country, someone likens it to something else, a must-see here or there…everywhere! Yes, that list never stops getting longer and longer. In some ways, I love it. In some ways it’s the bane of my existence. Even though there are so many awesome spots in this world that I just adore and want to return over and over again, I do like getting to brand new places as well. Doesn’t everybody?
Here are some posts you may have missed, but they are all about places that were never in a guidebook, or at least my guidebook and we just happened across them. Have you been to any of them?
What gems have you stumbled upon that you didn’t find in your guidebook?
