There are banner signs along the freeway in Sydney with the heading Detourism. I have no idea what’s being promoted as I never get past the headline. I read it as Detour-ism which is something that I entirely embrace although some would possibly see it as an affliction.
“I’ll just walk a bit further and see what’s around the next corner”.
“I’ll just drive down this side road and see where it leads.”
The unplanned and unexpected have invariably provided the highlights and best memories of my travels.
They’ve also played a pivotal role in the way the Big Yellow Suitcase experiences have been designed. No rush, there’s always the time and opportunity for those of us for whom ‘Detour-ism’ is what makes the difference between a good journey and a great one.
I am excited about all the places we visit but the little village of Ajijic in the colonial heartland of Mexico is my favourite place to indulge in ‘Detour-ism’. There’s a treasure around every colourful corner.
