In the Windlasse world, our days can go from rain to rainbow in a split second. Shifty winds are part of life, and any good sailor knows to head in the direction of the best breeze. This page is dedicated to sharing fresh ideas for having a great day!
Search for “Hidden Gem”
Busy Windlasses often don’t have time to plan for the fun things in life that would bring us joy, let alone actually do them. I haven’t figured out exactly why there are so many people that DO seem to have that extra time, but I’ve decided that I’m glad they do. November’s Daychanger is to search the internet for “hidden gem.” Without a doubt, whether you are chillin’ on your couch in your hometown, visiting your family 6 hours away, or on a year-long international tour, someone has already identified the “must-see” treasures of the world and posted them on the internet for you to discover. Wonderful places to eat, play, shop and stay are dangling like a carrot for a bunny. You just have to type your keyword location in to Pinterest or any of the major search engines and add “hidden gem.” This is the way I found this Parisian toy shop, this historic train ride between Lake Oswego and Portland, Oregon, and this great mobile app from Urban Quest Adventure for embarking on your own Amazing Race style scavenger hunt in many cities across the United States. Ready. Set. It’s “Go Have Fun in November” time.
