Travel By Design: Off the Beaten Path

Hiking Dominica's national trail

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”                –Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whether wandering off the tourist drags, or getting off the superhighways to find a surprising “gem” of a restaurant, attraction or activity not well known to the traveling public, going off the beaten path rewards event the most intrepid traveler.   It may take a sense of adventure or courage—or both, but going where few travelers go can provide a fresh source of travel stories and memories, while helping to bring tourism to places often overlooked.
