A bunch of my friends did the thing where they got their top nine photos on Instagram, so I figured I’d give it a try.
None are pictures of me — I don’t take selfies — and no shocker, the majority were travel photos, since that’s what I take most of my pictures of and my friends seem to like them.
Yet I noticed something as I took a look at them.
Not so much on New Year’s Eve, especially a rainy one, but Times Square is one of my favorite places in the world. I will always find it fascinating.
And I had been pointing to Wrigley Field ever since my wife and I started planning our trip to Chicago.
But Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London wasn’t even on my radar screen. I hadn’t even heard of it. We literally went because we were looking for something to do and were in the neighborhood.
And Edinburgh was just going to be the place we spent a few days after we left London.
Sure, it looked like it had potential, but so did Dublin a few years ago, and that was sort of meh after we had been in London.
But all of them were among the highlights of 2018.
So the moral of the story is great experiences can come when and where you least expect them.
