In a post by Tim Sullivan about traveling on the cheap is a beautiful insight:
There’s a French word, flâner, which is the best travel advice I could ever give. Flâner is hard to translate, something like “to meander about with an eye for beauty, with the eyes of a poet.” It’s the art of strolling, the art of observation. It’s slowing down.
This is something we should employ every day. I try to do this when exploring this wonderful city. Enjoy what’s beautiful around you.
