The Usual Things in Unusual Places

I believe the magic’s in the mix. I love to shake it up. I wanted to share a little secret on how to make that happen. Do very usual, ordinary things in unusual places. It’s so fun. Throw away the guide book when you’re traveling and find out where the locals eat. Take a chance. It might be delicious. Take a pass on the famous out-of-town shopping district. Look for a neighborhood boutique or better yet a flea market (especially good when you’re in Paris!). And for my very favorite, when I’m traveling and feeling overwhelmed with so much to see and so much to do … I stop. I break for coffee, wine, conversation. Pretending you’re at home in a faraway place makes you a local. That’s a kick!

(P.S. How about vice-versa? Introduce something exotic and unusual to your 24-7!)
