I recently arrived home from a two-week trip across seas. I visited Dublin, Ireland, London, UK, Paris, France, and Venice, Italy. Btw-click on the links! They’re not just your average travel sites. The trip was fantastic! I met so many amazing people… Some were amazing because how genuinely kind they were. Some were amazing because of the way the lived their lives. And some were amazing because I couldn’t imagine living the way they did.
What I think I loved most about the trip was simply being able to do new things every day. I once made a New Years resolution to do or learn something new everyday. That soon changed to every week, and eventually I forgot all about my resolution (as usual). When we are comfortable and on cramped schedule it is so easy to live each day normally, average – to be mundane.
With 24 hours each day and 14 days on my own, I had far too much time to be comfortably mundane. Excitement and challenges came in fits and starts; one minute I was near in tears because of how hard things could be in a foreign city, and the next I was having Prosecco and seared scallops with new friends.
I learned so much while traveling!
