Learning new steps again

A lot changed in 2016. One thing was that I lost my travelling companion of the past 10 years, so now I will sometimes travel alone. It takes a bit of learning. My first trip was to Kuala Lumpur in May 2016 for 4 days – pictures can be found here. KL will forever have a special place in my heart just for that reason. The first city where I wandered around by myself, taking in the sights, enjoying the hustle and bustle of the streets where old meets new.

The sightseeing part is easy, you go and see – and you get to choose what you want, no compromises. But then comes dinner time, wow that was tough. You sit there alone trying to look like you belong and not to give into urge to play around with your phone.

I think I will get the hang of it at some point, but might take a trip or two more. Next one up is three days in Baku, Azerbaijan. Clearly I also need to learn the trade of selfies…

Still learning to take selfies…
