I try to make up for my boring birthplace by living as adventitiously as possible. Sometimes a simple adventure is in order like trying a new restaurant, going to a bar I’ve never been to, or hiking an unexplored corner of somewhere USA. Sometimes life calls for something extraordinary like booking a plane ticket for a long weekend just to go exploring, or taking a road trip from the east coast to Napa Valley, or living in Tokyo for 6 months.
Although adventuring is fun it isn’t as easy as it used to be in my old age. So I also appreciate the relaxing activities life has to offer such hanging out for an evening and watching as much Netflix as time will allow, going to a quiet bar with friends and making each other laugh hysterically, theater hopping with booze, or going for a drive.
