This was largely my tactic for touring San Francisco, I wandered where looked interesting with only vague ideas of what to do. I think just even attempting to do this tends to skew people's perspective briefly, as they tend to notice others who aren't focused on being somewhere else. If you find someone interested, they have a natural curiosity not much different from the one you're expressing. Tell them what you're doing. I've found they consider it as an option that's never occurred to them before.
What I'm reading here though is those two things don't necessarily work together. If you've on a derive, you want to look open to new experiences, almost inviting them to happen. If you're on a GASM, don't you want to avoid notice, meaning looking as busy or natural as possible?
