“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.”

– Bill Bryson

When traveling abroad, something so routine can become something extraordinary.  Whether its shopping, eating, or going to the bathroom, these things can be so different in another part of the world.  Toilets can be replaced with holes in the ground.  Grocery stores get replaced with markets and shopping is replaced with bartering.  Eating in a restaurant can be done anywhere, sure.  But eating on the street, at a little plastic table and chairs can change the way you want to dine forever.  Don’t get too comfortable at home in your normal routine.  Journey to somewhere new and different, and enjoy the same routine in a whole new way.
