Chris Bundas –
The thing I love most about traveling is how being in a new element forces you to be open minded. I love Toronto; it’s one of the greatest cities in the world and it will always be my home. However, I find that it’s very easy to forget how amazing this city is when you’re living in it every day. I’ve been to all the nice restaurants, gone to all the cool bars, done all the Toronto things to do, over and over, and now, I find it’s more desirable to pass up a night out, for a night in with Netflix.
When I was 16, I was always asking my suburban mother if I could borrow her car to head to a friend’s house in the area. Being as awesome as she was, she would hand me the keys and say “don’t stay out too late.” Of course I wasn’t really going to a friend’s house; I was jumping on the DVP, heading downtown to explore that distant image of the CN tower I fell in love with growing up. Driving through the city streets, exploring all these new sights, I would feel an infinite sense of opportunity ahead of me. The whole world was right in front of my fingertips, ready for me to reach out and take it.
Every once in a while I still feel those boyish aspirations when I catch a glimpse of the CN tower looking down upon me. And every time I get on a plane and land in a new city somewhere on this glorious planet, I feel it again too.
Exploring a new city forces you to get out of your comfort zone. You’re open to trying anything, open to meeting new people. You want to make a memory out of this moment, so you shake the negativity that piles up at home, and for the next week, you’re exactly the person you want to be.
And then one night while in this new city, standing in a bar, you meet a pretty someone and things instantly click, the beginning of a foreign fling. Yes, the foreign fling, the best part of traveling. You both know that you only have a few days left together, so all the walls come crumbling down, and you jump in to a heated, passionate, intense 4-day fling.
