I guess I never thought about it like that. I guess to me it's more like having an endlessly restocked buffet to choose from. I don't have to be in any rush, I can pick and choose and just because I try one thing doesn't mean I won't be able to try something else later. Why not just approach it a bit less structured? What's the worst that's going to happen? You won't be able to sniff something? You're never going to be able to taste every great dish, eat in every great restaurant, drink every great wine or hear every great concert. If you're always worrying about what you may miss, you'll forget to enjoy the things that come your way.
