The best way to explore a new city like a local!

Geocaching is creative tourism at its finest. As a slow traveller I love making connections to the places I visit. A rushed itinerary that jumps from place to place over a couple of days is just not my style. I love staying in one location for at least 2 weeks & being able to soak up the entire atmosphere without feeling the pressure of having to get to the next place. Slow travel has lots of positives, however there is one negative I have found. Being all consumed with one location doesn’t leave much time to plan for the next. So to overcome this issue, I’ve found a really fun & interesting way to discover a new city or location like a local; with little to no research required!
