I have a weakness for foreign cities. Anyone else with me? The moment my plane touches down, I can feel myself falling for a new city- a city I am just beginning to explore. Today we embark on a 13 day trip to London, Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin. Normally, I prefer to spend a good chunk of time in one city so I can really get to know it and learn a little more about how locals live. But this trip will be fast and we will simply spend 3 nights in each city- just enough time to get a taste of the culture.
After living in Thailand for a year, I can’t help but ponder what it would be like to live in each city. What would become my routine? What habits would I pick up? What kind of people would I come to know? There is something hypnotic about the unknown and the possibilities of what could be. I love how foreign sounds and smells of a new city somehow strip us of our daily habits and force us to try something new. They force us out of our comfort zone, even if just for a moment. This is why I believe everyone should travel to a foreign place. For the reminder to think outside of our bubble and to question our priorities.
