last night because of a bank holiday in Ireland, I had had to drive to five cities to find on place to stay. it was a bit odd and eerie, as in a sense it was like, “what are you tourists doing in Ireland, it is our bank holiday! everyone leaves their own home to go sleep in hotels, dress up, and party!”
so this morning I woke up in a tee pee, with ocean birds talking as they perched above on the supports. looking around I went, “ok, this is way cooler than the suite we ended up staying at Saturday night at the airport.”
after driving through five cities, it was the only hotel room available, the irony was it was at an airport i flew into on my first time in ireland with a show years ago.
it appears all of Ireland goes out and rents a hotel room during a bank holiday, for reasons I am not sure why? in some ways it reminded me of the new year’s eve holiday in the states where people would dress up, spend twice as much for a product that in few days would return to normal prices, and call it a fun good time.
it all worked out, and I had to laugh that I am sleeping in a tee-pee that was found on an internet search. “so I am coming to Ireland to sleep in a native American tee-pee?”
that was the funny part, and thankfully I already experienced a tee-pee camp out and really enjoyed it. I guess that is what makes life interesting? are you able to move, adapt, and adjust to what live throws your way?
I think that is the answer to all the times I was on the road and saw some of the most amazing and beautiful sights of this planet – many times I was alone because people didn’t want to think, much less try to get out of their comfort zone and habits of what they knew or know.
it is a great inhibitor to growing and trying new things – to simply repeat the same thing over and over and expect life to give you different results.
