Every so often one just has to break out of the routine and do something new and different. When I was younger, and my brain was probably not fully formed, I did crazy things in the name of new and different, like jumping out of a plane.
Nowadays, new and different is much more sedate and simply involves getting away from work, from routine and allowing myself to be the guest of someone else. It really does make one a better innkeeper, to be their guest and get perspective from the other side of the hospitality desk.
It works wonders for the soul!
