I blame it on Montreal. Roaming through the streets of La Belle Ville means encountering all manner of circus arts, from stilt walkers in front of stores to aerialists on the streets. It's not the home of Cirque Du Soleil for nothing. I think such close encounters with high flying performers lodged a lot of curiosity in my mind. So when the notion of doing something unusual for Leap Year arrived what did I do? I signed up for flying trapeze class. I don't think this sort of learning environment would have seemed fun to me before Montreal. I have not thought fully about all the details, I've just decided to do it. After all, Chicago Trapeze School's motto is "Forget fear. Worry about the addiction." Right. So have your travels inspired you to do anything you wouldn't ordinarily do?
