I went down to the pool to read a book today while Chris had to work. Instead I met 5 new friends who shared a bit of their journey with me. A couple who met on bumble, falling in love after divorce in their mid 40's. A young 30 year old artist from LA, chasing her dreams in every direction. An ad agency owner who recently relocated to Laguna Beach to escape the LA scene, on a getaway by himself to recharge. And a girl from New York on a 3 week road trip with her best friend through the west. I intended to relax and keep to myself today but the energy at the Holiday House had other plans. This is why I travel. For the unexpected. To meet people I would never otherwise meet. To experience something unique. To see that people are inherently good and kind and open. Today I made 5 new friends.
