After Arriving at a Mountain Ski Town for a Three-Month Stay
I needed some familiar comfort—something that would remind me of home. Because when I arrive at a new destination, I can surprisingly feel a little lost or sad, however briefly.
Even Though I Love to Travel
Even though I seriously have no desire (whatsoever) to remain in one home. Even though I know this trip is absolutely the right thing to do.
We Were Happily Surprised
So one of the very first things we did upon arrival was head to a major (familiar) coffee chain. And I don't drink coffee. But we smiled, ordered toasty beverages, and a little treat.
The visual familiarity of that major coffee chain felt comforting. We recognized it from home. I wasn't alone.
This experience soothed me with something familiar, while we headed into the exciting unknown.
