Something new



I have a bee in my bonnet, itchy feet, or maybe just wanderlust that has transpired into a craving for all things new and exciting. Either way I have an overwhelming desire to try as many new things as I can every day. Whether this comes in the form of food and drink, activities, or new cities to explore, it is an impulse that needs to be satisfied.

Whilst in Copenhagen celebrating my 21st birthday, I sampled local beer, ate German sausage, drank in coffee houses that weren’t Starbucks and had honey and almond in my hot chocolate (which I will avoid at all costs in the future). Regardless of the success of these ventures, each one left me feeling more cultured and knowledgeable about the city of Copenhagen. So why stop there? 

Routine is restricting, like keeping your camera on automatic, it holds you back. When I go to an Indian restaurant I order a Peshwari Naan, when I visit La Perla I ask for a Strawberry Daiquiri and when I go to the Natural History Museum I run towards the blue room and stare at the whale for half an hour. Finding what you love and sticking with it seems natural, but it stops you finding something that could be even better. 

So now I am on the lookout for new and preferably exciting things, in as many aspects of my life as I can. This new venture of mine will probably just end in copious amounts of dinner dates, lots of horrendous cocktails and injuries caused from various new sports and activities. Regardless, I am a woman on a mission. If you want something you’ve never had, then you’ve got to do something you’ve never done and I am curious enough about the world to want everything, or at least to experience as many things as possible.
