I think that if you are ever bored then you need to make some serious changes in your life. Not trying to be a preacher or a psychologist, but life is far too short to be spending your time being bored!
I honestly can't remember the last time I was bored. I was probably a child and it was the middle of summer holidays and all of my friends were away. I think it's easier for a child to be bored than an adult. As an adult, you can go out and do something or go somewhere without needing the approval or help of someone else.
There is a difference between being bored and doing something boring. When you're doing something boring, it usually means that it doesn't require a lot of thought to be doing what you're doing. So you can keep your mind active while you're doing what it is that you have to do. But actually being bored means that you're not making proactive decisions about what to do at that particular point in time. Don't you think? Maybe I'm wrong.
I think we were worried about this blog becoming boring during this short period of staying in one place. Strangely, our readership has actually increased and continues to do so on a weekly basis. I'm not sure why that is, maybe it's because we're talking about some different things that are a little more varied than our daily travels.
