Hands up if you’ve ever got lost while you’re travelling!
I’m pretty sure 99.9% of you just raised your hands. I would definitely have to raise more hands than I had to represent how many times I’ve got spectacularly lost on my travels.
But the good thing is that pretty much every one of those times, I discovered something quite unexpected or met someone new and delightful as a direct result of getting lost. That’s why the new episode of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast is called The Magic of Getting Lost, because often magical stuff happens when you don’t know where the heck you are.
Show notes for Episode 11 – The Magic of Getting Lost
In Episode 11 we’re going to celebrate the magic of getting lost on our travels. Back in Episode 2 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast we talked about the terror of getting lost, but this time round everyone’s getting lost stories are way less scary and are usually just plain fun.
First up in this episode I speak with Dianne Bortoletto, a Perth-based travel blogger and dear friend of mine, and we spill the beans on a slightly embarrassing but very funny incident when we both got kind of lost while in Bangkok for a conference.
One of my all-time favourite guests, Kiliii Fish, returns in this episode with yet another fascinating story, this time about his attempts to find an Ecuadorian indigenous basket maker and how he was pretty much lost most of the way.
And finally, Joe Baur of the wonderful Without A Path podcast returns with his very sensible idea about intentionally getting lost. I realised while talking to Joe that I’ve done the same thing myself on occasion and that intentionally going somewhere that is unknown and without a map or plan can be a great way to explore a new city or country.
