It's interesting how when I first start out on a journey, I always want to see EVERYTHING, and I intend to do so. After a bit of time passes, however, I realize that seeing everything is not possible, not because of lack of desire, but because sometimes I actually just like to sit and exist in a place. I have a lot of energy, but it comes in spurts, and I need the occasional chance to just unwind. And travel, ultimately, is exhausting and often uncomfortable. So planned stops get deleted, full days of sightseeing start out with a small agenda, then lapse into an afternoon at a cafe, book and wine in hand.

Interestingly, I'm hitting a point where though I know I'll always start a journey wanting to see everything, part of me knows that won't happen and likes it. It's almost like having a bit of a secret, that there are still stones unturned, subtly inviting me to return to return and explore more. There is always something left to see.
