I was re-reading Gary’s trip report last night of his El Bulli experience, where he flew to Spain for dinner at the best restaurant in the world. Truly a fascinating trip report, but what really stuck with me was one quote towards the beginning of his report:
I tend to think people as a whole underinvest in peak experiences.
As simple as that sentence is, I find it to be pure genius. While a weekend in Spain might not be as culturally rewarding as a two week journey exploring the country, it can be just as memorable.
I guess the main thing I took from this is that life is short — enjoy it!
