Meeting people and dead ends.
Some places are like some people; you discover them and you want to keep exploring.
You're drawn to a beautiful corner and you see other perspectives when you get closer.
Sometimes you go through dark alleys to discover a well lit, cosy place. Other times you walk the extra mile and end up in a dead end.
Most of the time you put energy into it and curiosity drives you, but it can be tiring and figuring out you're on the wrong path makes you regret making those steps.
Same with people. Conversations might spark curiosity and reveal more than you thought. That more can be also a dead end, an ugly truth and you might regret meeting them in the first place.
But we're all travellers and it's part of the journey, right?
And meeting and getting to know people is the key to also find the good ones.
