Welcome to The Misplaced Tourist! It’s a lifestyle blog with a touristy flavor. Tourists are curious folks, exploring new places and cultures that are different from their own. That’s me! I’ve been a tourist from birth.
I never had the chance to grow up in the small town I was born in. I never had the chance to make lifelong friends. Those things take time. Tourists don’t have time for that. They sample, take pictures, and move on.
I guess that’s my own unique experience in life. I’ve often wondered what it would have been like to stay in one place for one’s whole life, assimilating local culture, knowing everyone in the town you were born in, living in the same house your parents brought you home to after you were born. That’s not my story though.
The first few posts then will be a sort of “get to know you” kind of thing. I’ll share a little bit about my touristy life. Then, as I go on, I plan on sharing my current touristy findings as I continue on my journey through this life.
