Some of the meals I’ve eaten overseas rate among the most memorable in my life. But when I say “memorable” I don’t necessarily mean in a good way.
Along with self-knowledge the road has given me innumerable gifts of experience, from the mundane to the once-in-a-lifetime, from tragedy to triumph, and every point in between. It’s one thing to learn from these experiences, however. It’s another to learn what I’ve learned.
