Really great to see there are others around also interested in this stuff. I actually read that Merlin Coverley book recently, it's a nice little read and taught me some stuff even though I've been interested in psychogeography for a while (e.g. I never connected Defoe's Plague Year
with psygeo before). Rebecca Solnit is another interesting author who writes about these broader themes of wandering and getting lost.
My first real experience was when I was quite young, getting hopelessly lost in Venice and deciding "well if I'm going to get lost anyway, I might as well enjoy it in its own right" … walked for hours and days, discovered the beautiful feeling of just drifting through the urban environment. Doing it in my home city was extra special, a rediscovery of something I thought I already knew intimately. Unfortunately I'm currently staying in a very cold city, so my opportunities for night walks are severely reduced. Thanks >>335
for the book recommendations, I'm always looking.
Nothing to contribute, really, just wanted to say I'm glad Alice is drifting alongside me.
