This is my first post, and I have writer's block already. Great start! I suppose the most logical way to begin is to explain what I'm doing on here. Answer: beats me... Well, not exactly. I'm leaving in 2 short weeks for a month-long trip across southeast Asia, and a number of people have said to me, "Hey, are you going to blog or anything while you're away?" I decided they were on to something, so here it is! But a blog isn't much to look at if I just post a few times over the course of a single month. I also travel fairly consistently between my chosen home (Washington, DC) and my hometown in Alabama, and I've traveled a good bit in the past. So I also plan to delve into the reverse culture shock I've encountered in returning to my home state and recount stories and lessons learned from past travels.
That is the initial grand plan. But first things first: get back from Asia in one piece. Which normally wouldn't concern me, but more than one person has expressed concern that I might end up in jail in a third world country. Seriously? I'm not that irresponsible!
