Love to travel in the way of a ‘Flâneur? Me too: A Flâneuse! Baudelaire coined the term to mean the ‘connoisseur of the street’ – someone with the time to stroll about and take in the details. This is how I apply it to travel . To me a Flâneur is someone not seeking the travel hot spots and the next disco, but wanting to have a momentary sense of belonging – of connection to the soul and character of the places visited. If this is your philosophy too, then join me as a travelling companion on discover-interesting-places.com and read my book of the adventure of one month with no plan on the backroads of the Cuban countryside at www.amazon.com/author/paquita.lamacraft
