I'm a true experiences collector. If I were given an official acknowledging paper or some sort of a certificate for each thing I've ever tried but had no real business trying, I'd have a huge pile of such paper verifications by now.
For instance, I've never house hunted before - not for myself, nor with someone else. I remember seeing the activity in movies when I was a kid and thinking that it was kind of cool and very grown-up looking. Well, today was my first time!
I was asked of a favor to check out some properties here in country C. on behalf of someone else and, let me tell you, it was a very different experience - exactly the kind of a new thing I like to try and am always thankful for. I was driven around town and shown whatever I wanted to see, and maybe it would've been even more fun if I was actually looking for a place of my own and needed it here in country C. - one of the apartments I saw today looked 86% like my dream bachelorette pad. One thing I know for sure is that when I'm finally house hunting for myself I'll have this priceless experience and use the tricks realtors use to my own advantage. (I was definately making careful observations, yes!)
On another note, the food at the Thai restaurant I mentioned before is a reason good enough to make a really quick come back to this resort town - their broccoli is just too amazing for words! Had it again tonight and my stomach couldn't be more thankful, oh my. I'll probably be back again before I leave.
P.S. I'm thinking people who wonder how come I manage to truly enjoy my solo trips abroad need to read my blog. See, it's just impossible for me to get bored even if I travel alone - I attract non-boring things just like my food plates attract delicious broccoli. Okay, this last line was kind of lame... My excuse is I'm just having way too much fun!..
