Enigmatic, Arcane, and Esoteric

Are you familiar with Atlas Obscura? It's a website, book, podcast, and travel company which bills itself as "The definitive guide to the world’s hidden wonders"

The site catalogs unusual and obscure travel destinations all over the world. For example, in my metropolitan area there are 28 places, including museums, cemeteries, historical buildings and houses, artwork, and one-of-a-kind things to see.

I always enjoy clicking from page to page on the site to see what's new, but my favorite section is the food section (called Gastro Obscura) which has stories about "the distinctive food locations of the world."

It doesn't cost anything to register on the site. You can keep track of all the obscure places you've been, and make a list of others you want to see. You can also become a member, which gives you access to additional content.

  1. What a find! I am loathe to travel. I'm happy exploring virtually!

  2. I will pass this information on to my adult granddaughter who loves an adventure. I still use a paper calendar on my desk to record my writing submissions. It is a visual kick in the pants if I see not many squares filled in, and I get to work.

  3. That's sounds interesting. I shall have to investigate. Thank you
