Waking Up in a Strange Town

Sunrise in Cape Town, South Africa

“To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world. You are surrounded by adventure. You have no idea of what is in store for you, but you will, if you are wise and know the art of travel, let yourself go on the stream of the unknown and accept whatever comes in the spirit in which the gods may offer it,” – Freya Stark in Baghdad Sketches.

Inspired by National Geographic’s “Photos: Famous Great Travelers

What strange town(s) have you woken up in ready for an adventure?
