    I always appreciate the mundane when I’m busy going from one destination to the next too fast. Then when things have slowed down I’m off to plan another getaway!

    I like being an expat not only because I don’t have to live out of a suitcase but also because it’s a bit of both worlds!

      Yes, it’s very nice to be able to just slow things down and enjoy things. Sometimes the simple parts of life are great memories.

    When I was living in Ireland I remember appreciating the fact that I wasn’t an actual tourist and got to live the Irish life for a good while. I kept a journal, and Noel is the only one who’s ever read any of that. Since he put it down some time ago and hasn’t picked it back up (that I know of), I’m thinking there must have been a lot of that *mundane* going on, there….

    When I think back on that time, it is actually the mundane that comes to mind and makes me smile ;~).

    Life is only mundane if you let it be, even at home there are times when I just want to be

      I think it’s good to have mundane moments. Helps you enjoy the exciting moments that much more.

    You’ll get no argument from me (the lass who spent nearly a year in Dalat alone – albeit interspersed with various ‘n sundry jaunts to Oz, Laos and some mighty sweet beaches in Vietnam. Shoot, I too am well into my 2nd month here in Chiang Mai, and it seems like I just arrived last week!

    Indeed, absolutely nothing at all “mundane” about slow traveler’s “mundane”. I mean, you may be sitting tight for a goodly while, but you’re doing it… in a completely foreign country where you don’t speak the language nor have a clue about how to accomplish a myriad of small and large everyday chores like… finding something as simple as CREAM for heaven’s sake!

    Nosireee, plenty of “adventure” to be had everyday of the week while settled in one spot – when that spot isn’t your same ol’-same ol’ native land.

    Enjoy your sweet MUNDANE, my friend!

      VERY true! And I’m definitely enjoying those moments.
