Seoul, South Korea
Today I spent the day mostly in the car; Aaron needed some things for his house and so we drove in and around Denver picking up the odds and ends that make his space feel like a home. I, too, will have to do this in a few weeks time, as I’ll be settling in Canada for at least four months before hopefully taking off again.
It’s interesting to run these sorts of errands while I am in a different city, as what could be a boring day can turn into a way to sightsee, to experience a new place. I always feel like there is an adventure to be had if there is a window to look out of, whether it be a car, train, airplane, bus, tram, boat, or what-have-you. Even subways and metro systems, like the one I travelled on in Seoul, can provide endless amounts of people-watching and endless amounts of laughs (that is, of course, if you have your best friend with you). I like to think that I take every opportunity to keep moving, to keep looking, even if it is in a car on the highway and you are headed to IKEA. I think that that is what fuels any traveller, the act of moving, of wandering, of refusing to be stagnant. Anything and everything can be an adventure.
