I packed my sneakers in my carry on. I could have saved the space for what I am about to say, anyways, I can't leave town without something to run away with as that would defeat the purpose of skipping town.
( It worked out because I spent sometime on uncharted routes to Runyon. This is a story for another time, keep in mind the song "Landslide" may have been summoned up by Siri. )
Planning a class helped me settle into being away, as well as set me back into my routine (not resolution) upon my return. Instead of my usual run while away, I took to seeking (untouristic) activities.
Take in the vibe of a class in another city as well as a new perspective as different studios have different styles of teaching. Chat after class with locals, you are sure to get suggestions for places to have a bite or where to find cool vintage.
The point of travel is to change your perspective, so as you expand your practice, your horizon will grow simultaneously with the change of view.
