Reasons Why I Am Mildly Interesting #1:
Two years ago, I decided to quit my job, pack up my life, cash in my savings, and travel for a while. No real plan or destination, I just figured I'd see some of the cool stuff in the world that I was going to miss if I stayed where I was ... I figured once I had tenure in my teaching job and bought myself a house, there was no way I'd ever leave. I had every intention of keeping a travel blog, but the best I did was emails home, a Flickr album, and the occasional post on Travels with Swatchy. I do want to share my travel stuff here, though, because it was the most amazing set of experiences!! I can't even tell you what was my favorite - a month of yoga in the Bahamas? Trekking in Thailand? River tubing in Vang Vieng, Laos? 6 weeks in Italy? Portland? Fiji? 5 Months in Australia?
But I WILL tell you about all of it, eventually. Bit by bit, most likely. But it's a start.
I have been home for periods on and off since then, and the itchy feet are calming down a bit, but not nearly as much as I thought - I walked past the travel book section at the library the other day and got weak in the knees. There are so many places I haven't been yet! Including England, where I am MOVING in just a few weeks!
So tell me, where have YOU always wanted to go?? Maybe it will be next on my list ;)
