I love the expression “going to town.”
Growing up, my family used it liberally: “You’re really going to town on that burrito” or “You’re going to town on that project.” It meant approaching a task or topic or book with passion and keen interest, unmoderated appetite or energy. Giving it your all.
In adulthood I understood the origin of the expression as I found stimulation in the streets and coffee houses of Philadelphia and other cities. Going to town became a way of living, a level of engagement that transcended place.
This month we’re going to town! Read about all the things that we love in some of our Untours towns and cities, like the museums in Leiden, the cafe culture of Paris, or the historic sights of Edinburgh. I hope these articles stimulate and inspire you.
Of course you don’t need a passport to go to town. You just need the hunger!
