Double Takes: THE GUIDE TO GETTING LOST: FLANEUR SOCIETY

The Flaneur Society has created The Guide to Getting Lost, in which they explore the concept of the flaneur, a French word for one who wanders without a destination.

Using the language of the Park Service and backcountry maps, the guide aims to introduce the participant to a city without the concern of street names and directions. Inside, there are three maps which can guide the participant to a state of Flaneuring.

I’ve always found my most successful attempts at discovering a place included no maps or end points, which is precisely what this pocket-sized guide is preaching. The book is just a few short pages, available online for free, but it packs a big punch for anyone with a sense of adventure.
