When was the last time you experienced something totally NEW?

  1. For me it was when I ordered some Thai food recently. I ordered a soup, which contained large, fleshy, pod-like things, shaped like miniature pears.
    They were in fact, mushrooms - of a type I had never seen in my life.

    They looked like alien birth sacs from some primordial planet. The soup tasted amazing though.

    Probably when I started snorkelling a few years ago.
    Amazing.

     
  4. That's a coincidence - I remember thinking at the time they looked like something that would give eternal life!

    I'm not sure that eating is actually anything new but I did have snake for the first time last year. It was meh.

    I visited a gym yesterday. And I used the equipment.
     
  15. Parachute jump when I was a teenager - amazing and got me over my fear of heights.
    Also climbing the sail of a tall ship.
    Having a brain scan last year as part of a psychology study. Very strange and I was in the MRI scanner for more than an hour! Thought they'd melted my brain. I got a scan picture as a memento - quite weird seeing your own brain.
    Also last year - learning to drive - that was a new and scary experience.
