The start of some­thing big

From a half-dozen of our sea­soned so­journ­ers, six tales of first times

The Washington Post Sunday - - TRAVEL -

There’s a first time for ev­ery­thing, as the in­dis­putable say­ing goes — and travel is no dif­fer­ent. Who can for­get their first glimpse of the Grand Canyon? Their first es­presso at a Paris cafe? Their first time stand­ing hap­lessly at the bag­gage carousel as their suit­case fails to ap­pear? (Okay, scratch that last one.) For this col­lec­tion, we bring to­gether a half­dozen travel firsts. Some of our con­trib­u­tors were new­bies through dis­in­cli­na­tion, oth­ers from sim­ple lack of op­por­tu­nity — and all own up to a cer­tain level of trep­i­da­tion. But whether it’s trav­el­ing by bus or see­ing that fly­ing chan­de­lier up close, try­ing new things can change your per­spec­tive. And isn’t that what travel is all about?
