During one of the many meals my husband’s Aunty Mary fed us over Easter, I caught myself saying, ” She has to eat Haggis while in Scotland!!!”
Then, I side eyed the head cheese that I had just refused. Hmmm.
Why is it that I am so much more willing to try things, whether it be food or a dare devil activity, when I am in another country?
This thought immediately entered my mind, so I reached across the table, grabbed some vinegar and shoved a fork full into my mouth. Ughhhh. Slimy. But, not so bad!
With a feeling of personal pride, I went outside and told my husband.
My quest for being more adventurous and ” present” is going in the right direction. Just this weekend I helped make a basket of Easter food for Aunty to take to church to be blessed. I was soooooo close to volunteering to go with her. But, it was Saturday night…and I was a few drinks in….so I kept quiet.
I also showed a bit of braveness when I drove a side by side up a steep icy hill. ( The passengers might have been showing more strength! This was after I courageously clung on while sliding down as a passenger!
So, the weekend was a success. Now, I prepare for my first Tourism Convention! I have made stickers to promote Leader Tourism and Cruisin Christine. Will I be brave enough to pass some out??
What is something you wish you did more of while at home? Do you notice a difference in what you are willing to try at home vs on a trip?
