A Different Travel Guide

Travel is easily one of our most favorite topics around here and travel related trappings is a weakness we don't want to overcome.  We like collecting travel books and guides of places we've been to and those that are still on our list. Hence my fascination with this different kind of travel guide. 
A stimulating paper bound project that is not specific to any place but is rather "situated somewhere in the middle," says Stockholm designer Magda Lipka Falck. She describes it as  "a travel guide that will hopefully lead you to places you have never seen before—though you may visit them every day. A place you have forgotten, a place you have never searched for or a place that does not exist."
What I love most in the guide is this set of small cards that you can use whenever, wherever you may be as long as your object is to get to know the place and experience it like a local. 
60 cards that can change your views on places both old and new to you and is such a refreshing take on travel guides. This is definitely something worth trying on our next destination. I just don't know what the impact of travelling with a toddler would be. We shall see.
