Have you ever heard of a Soundwalk?
Perhaps not. But let's think about this for a moment. Imagine if someone walked you through their neighborhood describing every detail including sounds and scents.
Via the podcast To The Best of Our Knowledge segment "Sense of Place" I went to this website that features very lovely soundwalks by some enchanting voices.
Take the time and use your ears for a moment and listen to these soundwalks. If you have extra time then take a listening to that podcast as well. Both are very enlightening on our sense of place and home. Something as an expat I wonder and think about often.
