Unexpected findings to share.

Traveling is the passion of many. Discovering  places off schedule, taking the risk of small or big detours, not so much. I started traveling this sublime earth as a teenager, with a backpack and staying at youth hostels. Since then, I have circled the globe several times, but the constant element in my trips, it's the fact that I live the most memorable moments when I go off script, and plunge into The Small Detour. This site is to inspire you to take your own.
