We never really know when a detour may pop up.
Most certainly, there is a momentary groan when you see that sign pop up.
You wonder how long it may take you out of your way, what obstacles you may encounter, and whether it will truly get you to your destination.
You are one in a sea of many confused travelers, trusting in the new route.
But, more often than not, you end up where you are supposed to be. Maybe a few minutes behind, but with a new perspective. That unexpected route may have allowed you to see sights you hadn’t seen before. It may have served as a reminder that there is always more than one way to your destination.
