Are You Ready For A Mystery Vacation?

Jessica Rubin

How would you feel if you woke up, got ready for a day of travel, hopped on a train and had no idea where you were going to end up? Well, if that’s exactly the kind of adventure you’re looking for, make your way over to the Bureau Of Unknown Destinations in Brooklyn.

This rather unusual travel agency offers “free tickets to psychogeographic travelers of all kinds,” which is probably one of the best business descriptions we’ve heard in a long time. After you book your trip, you’re given a free train ticket, a notebook and a small “task” that you have to complete on your journey.

How is this all possible? The agency is actually part of Sal Randolph‘s artist’s residency at Proteus Gowanus, an “interdisciplinary gallery and reading room” in Brooklyn. But regardless of the reason, we’re hoping to get our hands on one of these special, blind adventures. What better way to break up the humdrum pattern of everyday life than with a free trip outside of your daily reality?!
