British author and explorer, Freya Stark, wrote,
"To awaken alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world."
I agree with Freya; it is certainly a strange sensation, to wake up in an unfamiliar location, and then, once you realize where you are, there is a wonderful sense of satisfaction. It’s like you’re saying, "Oh, yeah, we’re in …, how cool!" At this time, by the way, because your senses are heightened by the new surroundings, you will notice things you might otherwise ignore. Your powers of observation are enhanced, another aspect of the joys and benefits of travel.
