Should I Become A Tour Guide?1 March 2015
Once again we have a big gap between posts here …. but I have a good excuse. A month ago I moved house and am still surrounded by large quantities of unpacked boxes.
But I have found a little time to explore my new neighbourhood. And it’s happening again! I mentioned this a couple of years ago and had forgotten about it until I found myself in the same situation.
On my first trip to my local town, within 5 minutes of my arrival there I was stopped in the street by a stranger asking for directions. On my second trip there a week later, the same thing happened (different stranger of course). And last week visiting a part of Sydney I hardly know, once again I was approached.
Do I dress as though I’m a local guide? Do I look incredibly knowledgeable? Do I appear to be extremely friendly? No idea what the answer is but this seems to happen EVERY time I visit a new area (or even new country). And I always feel so guilty that I can’t help.
