I don’t know about you, but when I’m traveling in a new place, I love to walk around and explore as much as I can. I usually end up meandering off the beaten path and wandering down some side street somewhere and I inevitably end up in a neighborhood at some point.
As I wander down residential streets in a foreign land, I always look a the front doors of people’s homes. I wonder what might be behind those doors. What is the story of the people who live there? What is the story behind the door?
Who lives in this house? What do they do for a living? What do they do for fun? What are their names?
Are they an elderly couple, or a young family with children?
Do they like to cook at home or do they enjoy dining out?
Do they like to travel like I do? I wonder if we met, if we would be friends.
Perhaps I’ll never know the stories behind the doors.
