Search or Explore: What's the Difference?

    Searching is trying to find something that is supposed to be there. Exploring is just trying to find out what is there. There may be an overlap in some cases.

     For example, you may be in a strange town and looking for a restaurant. You could search for a place that serves fish, but you would probably find restaurants you were not familiar with.

     If you're looking for something you expect (or hope) to be there, that's searching. If you decide to check out one of the others, that's exploring.

Exploring can be loads of fun. And you can learn a lot, too.
