What does “another beaten path” mean?

There is a moment that every traveler meets — the one where the off the beaten path adventure runs smack into a cluster of people clutching the same travel guide as the one in your hand. And so, what was supposed to be off the beaten path becomes another beaten path. But, success in exploration is not limited to finding places and things that no one else has found. Rather, it is bringing one’s own unique perspective to places, people, and things that creates a spirit of discovery. In other words, it’s all how you see it.

Per the dictionary: “items of collectible memorabilia, typically written or printed ones, that were originally expected to have only short-term usefulness or popularity.” But, for my purposes, a catchall category for the thoughts that don’t fit neatly elsewhere. Also, it sounds better than mishmash or hodgepodge.

What do you do when you’re not rambling here?

I practice law (go ahead, Google, I’ll wait here). I also contribute to The Changeover as often as I can. There may also be some internet time wastage.
