Usually the time I spend in the car (like most busy Mums) is governed by the clock. I am either rushing to get to school/ballet/sport pick up or I have a very small amount of time in which to complete a long list of errands. So, I mostly travel from A to B the very shortest or quickest way possible. On the rare occasions I am driving with time to spare, I love to explore new areas or detour past some of my very favourite streets. Here are a few things that would entice me from my usual route...
A gorgeous house. This one is just so pretty and has been carefully landscaped with plenty of the white rose bushes that Melbournites are so fond of.
A tree lined street. Particularly gorgeous in Autumn and spring.
A touch of real estate stalking. Always pretending money was no object of course!
Unusual architecture. This one is a little hard to see, but directly behind those big windows there is actually a tennis court. Obviously much more attractive than an ordinary high fence or netting but I'm not sure how practical it would be (especially the way I play!)
A beautiful park. Don't you just want to walk along that path past those Narnia lamp posts?
A stunning window display. How I wanted to take these home!
What tempts you to go the 'long way' home or detour from the quickest route?
