Are you "invisible" when you travel? Or do you make a "statement"

Have you seen the shows where someone is selected off the street for a  “make over” ?
How bad do you have to look to be selected from a crowd in a city of millions?

My 2012 adventure home to Italy this November had a stop in Great Britain.  The Queen Mary took me from NYC to Southampton, so I planned 2 days in London.  The city is always changing but it has been many years since I visited.

While watching a street performer yell at a tourist about not saying thank you a young man approached me.
One, I am always invisible when I travel.    I travel with a low profile but it sometimes amazes me that I can go unnoticed most times.   The only time this is annoying is when you want to order a meal or pay for something in a shop or an outdoor market.  But it all works.

So when I was asked if I would like a “free” hair cut make over I was surprised I was noticed by the employee assigned to go out into the street and find someone  AND then I was a little annoyed that I must have looked so bad I looked like I needed a make over!

I shared this with my hair stylist as soon as I returned.   She now has the mission to fix me so that I am invisible again.
