Cardigan finished & Anthony Bourdain
After I finished the cardigan on Saturday morning we headed to Knoxville to see Anthony Bourdain speak. We got in town in time to eat a great seafood dinner at Chesapeak's Restaurant downtown. Then we walked over to the Tennessee Theatre. The theatre was beautiful!
Tony was hilarious and the talk was very casual. I love how he's never pretentious on his show and that came across at the talk as well. Every American needs to hear what he has to say about travel and respecting and truly experiencing the cultures during your journeys. It's a big world out there and I appreciate people who understand that and are inspired to help others come to that realization.
Traveling is one of those things that will always change you and will always keep you learning and wondering and growing. I really value the ability I have to travel and see the world. I'd say if you have a choice between a flat-screen and a trip to Italy...travel!!!
