One of my biggest joys in life is to explore the new.
To try new things. To say why not.
To get lost in a new to me city.
Like that one time, outside of Dublin, Ireland. We hopped on a train, on a whim and recommendation from a taxi driver. And all of a sudden, found ourselves lost in an Irish field and traipsing through a breathtaking ruin of a castle.
But for taking that taxi, the magically Irish castle would have never happened.
Our picturesque lunch by the water and afternoon Guinness would have remained a dream. A wish, even possibly a regret.
While I am no longer traipsing through the rolling greens and damp cold of that field, I still apply the same why not attitude to life. Try the new. Explore. Meet new people.
New friends must check out a new restaurant, right?
We decided Libertine, the newly replaced Cafeteria, was a must.
The smoked salmon was my favorite.
Heres to many more meetings, new places and new friends.
Happy Weekend! What are your plans?
