That is what I realized today as we navigated through public transportation systems and traveled rural land by train. We watched people on the underground and enjoyed dinner at a great English Pub. There are similarities and there are differences to my every day, but perhaps what I notice most as I travel today is how curious and aware I am when I am on vacation. As I watch as a young man gives up his seat for an older lady, as I watch many cultures come together on a city street, as I wonder about the scents that fill the air and stories of those who I see, even interact with, and will most likely never see again, I feel stimulated and aware in my heart….and that is good!
I hope I remember this feeling of curiosity and wonder of people. I want to take that back to Michigan with me for sure!
Off to bed for a good 12 hours of sleep. Tomorrow is a full day and an early start.
