An everyday tourist is a flaneur, someone with curiosity, who seeks new experiences and has an eye for the road less travelled. He/she takes the time to look, listen and reflect on everyday experiences.

What we do.....

I have branded myself as the "everyday tourist" as that my approach to life everyday.  I am a freelance writer focused on urban living, design, development and travel.   

What a great start to my Sunday morning.  A cup of coffee and your blog.  Not only did you enlighten many readers with reasons Amazon should consider Calgary, you clearly reminded us all of the many wonderful sites and attractions available to us in this beautiful city of ours.
