After watching the quick look of the new Skyrim DLC, I got the bug to head back into the world. Months ago I had grown bored of the quests but I loved the exploration aspect. And after spending 18 hours and still finding tons of areas to explore, I'm hooked again. There are so many random events occurring in the world. Half the fun comes from watching events unfold. For instance I saw a four way fight between some Thalmor justicars, Stormcloaks, a giant, and a dragon. Surprisingly the Thalmors came out on top. It's those kind of situations that makes the game so fun to play. I doubt very much that I'll do any more quests or get the DLC. But for now I'm content to explore.
