"Watching the World Go By"

With the comments from yesterdays post in mind, I am thinking there are lots of us out there that have a bit of a door thing happening in our lives. I guess we would all be people watchers as well. Isn't it great just sitting and watching the world go by. I remember when Melbourne hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2006, I was working in the city, so I was right in the thick of all the excitement all day long. Rather than watch that excitement pass our office window I decided to spend one night after work experiencing as much as I could. Part of my indulgence was to sit on a seat on the banks of the Yarra River and watch the world, people, animals and life pass me by for a couple of hours. What country were people from, what events did they see, are they happy, are they sad?? It was one of the best nights I have ever spent doing nothing really.


  1. Hello Davine. People watching, just enjoy it.
    When I lived in The Netherlands, one best moment was sitting outside a cafe in an Amsterdam square, watching the buskers doing there thing. Such a lazy relaxing moment taking it all in. Thanks for sharing yours.
    Many thanks for taking the time to visit my blog & leaving comments.
    Kind Regards

  2. Ahhh, people watching... guilty yet this pastime will come in handy once I am out working in the field of social work. I will need to read body language, have strong people skills, strong interviewing skills... and it goes on! Yup good thing I have done much of this in my past.
    Now how is that for a justification for people watching? hehe


I would love to hear your comments.
