On the train to Paris last Friday we were eating our lunch that we brought and I realized we had no clue what that night would be like.
There were pictures of the apartment we had rented over the weekend, but one never knows if that is how a place is irl. And we had gotten some suggestions for restaurants in Paris, but nothing was booked and we might not even feel like going out. Is there a grocery store nearby? We had no idea.
Now we know what the place looks like, that there are great restaurants in the area, several grocery stores and “walking-friendly” streets.
But we’re about to step into the unknown again.
We’re leaving Europe tomorrow, to go via Qatar to Bali, a trip of more than 24 hours from door to door.
In Bali we’re booked for a six-nights stay in Kuta – nothing else is planned. We know the food will be different, the sounds, the temperature and the sun, the people and nature – most things will be different from here, and still we will meet people; people that all have the same needs, desires and wishes as most other human beings.
So we’re ready to meet what comes our way, curious of how we will react to what is new to us, interested in discovering new places and people from all paths of life.
Tired from walking, grateful to spend our days together and curious about life.
