Away and Back

Less than 24 hours after arriving home from Istanbul I thought I would take a moment to briefly reflect on the five best things about travel and then the five best things about coming home!

Five best things about travel

1. Delightful caos of foreign streets
2. Discovery and serendipity 
3. Shopping (and haggling) in markets and bazaars 
4. Standing out in a crowd
5. Meeting new people and hearing new perspectives

Five great things about being home

1. Delightful order 
2. Friends and familiarity
3. Fixed prices
4. Feeling connected and anonymous 
5. Talking with friends and those you love!
