Experiencing new places is like nothing else. I feel uncertain, trying to grasp where things are directionally, while enjoying the new sights and smells. One gets a heightened sensitivity to things. Buildings, plants, and people look different. The first day is usually the one where I notice all the differences to home. Our journey began in NYC which was a great transition stop for us from our home in Europe. It was easy to get around on public transport, a big city, lots of variety in food, cultures, and activities.
The trip has been a delight so far.
To follow as we travel, in real time follow me @olivegreenanna on instagram. (I only occasionally have extended periods of internet access to blog.)
Have a great beginning to august!
