#64. Spend the day in my town as a tourist and visit everything I can downtown
Yesterday I managed to complete one of my 101 goals- I spent the afternoon downtown with a friend and we ended up acting like huge tourists for 3-4 hours and taking a million pictures… And just trying to see the city through the eyes of a tourist. I know that I live in a beautiful city, I’ve said it many times, but yesterday I walked into tourist boutiques, I walked through the streets and acted like it was totally normal to take pictures everywhere I stood & I talked with street vendors and just tried to see the little things about Montreal that usually go unnoticed when I’m around these same places.
I think I love my city even more now, if possible. How could I ever want to live anywhere else? Home really is where the heart is.
I didn’t go visit any museums or anything like that, which had originally been my idea when I wrote out this goal, but I really took the time to visit the streets in a whole new way, and I think that counts for something too. There are still so many things that I want to do in Montreal, and I’m slowly crossing them off my list. For now though, I think I can consider this goal a complete success in a way that I wasn’t expecting.
Have you ever walked your city through the eyes of a tourist?
