I'm fascinated by the idea of a having a new way to get where I'm going.

It might be a forest trail in an urban park near my house rather than walking the dog on a sidewalk 300 meters and a world away.

Or it might be riding a bike on a trail through my city and seeing an entirely different point of view from that which you get looking out of a car on traveling the streets. Same city, different experience entirely.

Or it even be going out of my way and taking a tourist train from the next city over instead of calling for a ride from the airport :-)

These alternatives are just that - different ways to experience the same places but in a way that feels more connected, more thoughtful and slowed-down.

We humans desire connectedness and in fact we go crazy when we are isolated.
