“Make a u-turn as soon as possible.”
– my GPS
While moving from one place to another, every so often (which is to day, almost every day), I see something so stunningly beautiful I have to stop or turn and go back.
I prefer to travel with a GPS, mostly because I don’t find old fashioned maps romantic and I know if the GPS breaks, I am more than capable of finding my way anyway. I’ve experiences that and it’s just not a big deal.
My GPS tells me how to get from A to B, and I love it for that, but it doesn’t really consider the stuff in between. I don’t blame good ol’ GPS for that, that’s not its job. That’s my job.
Sometimes I see signs, sometimes I see scenery and sometimes it’s just a feeling. These little detours make me spend more on gas, but they never really let me down.
Don’t rush from A to B when you’re on a road trip, most likely you’ll miss the best parts. Ignore your GPS for a little while, it’ll find the way back eventually.
