Can You Visit the Same Place Twice?
Retracing my steps has been a theme of the blog this week, so I thought it appropriate to tie in a hint. It’s one I came up with last year, when I was in Marseille for a conference.
I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Marseille over the past five years since my sister moved nearby (along with husband and Adorable Nephews) and I love it – I think it’s one of the most interesting and beautiful cities in Europe. But I notice in myself a tendency to want to do the same things when I’m in Marseille: I want to have lunch in LesArsenaux, admire the ex-votos and the stunning views at Notre Dame de la Gardeand – if time allows – have a drink at the bar at Le Corbusier’s CiteRadieuse.
So here’s my new rule (slash hint): for every familiar thing I do when revisiting a place, I’ll do something new as well. It’s an excellent balance, if I say so myself.
