A Day in the City

I have no idea how people sit in coffee shops and write. My brain is so overwhelmed right now it feels impossible to reflect. I just spent the last three and a half hours trolling the streets of Dublin with a shit eating grin and a giant back pack strapped to my shoulders. I am a grade A tourist.

As much as I enjoy walking around the city by myself I can’t help but feel a pang of loneliness. Everyone seems to be walking in pairs or groups. And it makes sense. When I see something I like, my first instinct is to share it. I have no one to turn to and say “Hey look at that!” Hence the shit eating grin. I’m saying everything to myself.

I know I’m not the only person who goes traveling alone. But I also find it hard to meet people. So I took a leap of faith and put up post on Reddit Meetup. I figured maybe there are other people on their own in Dublin who wouldn’t mind some company. But alas, no responses. It got eleven upvotes though! Whatever that means…
