Hi, I’m Lyndsay!
Who among us has been lost before? *all hands raise* It’s not usually something you do on purpose. However, it’s precisely what I suggest. Get lost. Purposely. With purpose.
My absolute favorite activity in a city is to pick a neighborhood and take a walk. Get lost along the way. Explore the shops. Pop in somewhere for a cup of tea. Watch people going about their day.
When you’re traveling somewhere new, prepare. Do your research. Know where you would like to explore, and where you shouldn’t venture to if you’re on your own. Keep a list of recommendations.

I write about life. What I explore. A new shop today, a show tonight, and maybe an old museum tomorrow. This is a living space; we’ll grow together. Always feel free to reach out to me with thoughts, ideas, and questions.
Please join me on this journey to get purposely lost.
