First there’s the happiness of beginning the day with someone you love; then there’s the thrill for the both of you to be somewhere new and wonderful to explore together.

Without a guidebook to guide us through the city, after On and I had breakfast this morning we left our hotel, the Inter City Hotel and just started walking. We just wanted to go for a morning stroll and take in some of the sights and sounds of the city without having to go anywhere special. We’ll do that later. For now, it’s all about being together and savoring the moment.

I think everyone should do that when they travel somewhere for the first time. Instead of relying on a guidebook just take a few hours and go for a walk. If one has enough time for such a walk, it is so much more interesting to explore a new place without having to worry about what to see and do.

And that’s exactly what On and I did this morning.
