before discovering those gems. So, fellow explorative travelers, be relieved! You are not alone and do not give up! I feel frustrated at moments too when I look around every possible corner, thinking, “ooh this street looks interesting, there’s bound to be an awesome café brimming with locals I don’t understand and a to-die-for dish to discover!” Nope, nothing, so to satiate that hungry belly, sometimes it’s about just eating what’s there.
Here, we can learn from photography. We all have seen those timeless images that shape history and change our lives. From such photos I am inspired and humbled at the same time. What we do not see, however, are the 100s and 1000s of mundane photos it took before achieving that breakthrough shot.
So, my dear travelers, do not fret, our journeys are bound to experience some dead ends and disappointing meals. When you are trying out something new, escaping to a new town, country, continent, it’s not all AMAZING, LIFE-CHANGING AWESOMENESS!!! There are also frightening, disappointing and straight out boring moments. Part of the experience is also discovering what we don’t like and how we don’t want to travel in the future. It pretty much keeps us safe and helps us laugh at anything.
