One of the positive things about travel for me is the interruption of routines. One of the daily things I did every day when at home was watch the news. I have not done so in over 10 days now and I have noticed an interesting consequence: mental space.
There is more space in my mind to learn new things and take on new impressions. And strangely enough, the world still goes on whether I know about it or not.
So here is another resolution: less news and media and more books, museums and walks in the park.
