After a year long absence, I’ve decided to come back into the blogosphere (I swear I didn’t just make that word up). I finished my travels and am now back home trying to transition to normal life and heaven knows it isn’t easy (maybe I’ll share in a future post). The question is what is normal nowadays. Moving every 3 to 4 days to a new place via all types of transportation, meeting new people, making new connections, eating cheaply, not planning too far in advance. That’s what used to be the norm. Do I miss it? Definitely but it was exhausting at times especially when you do it for a whole year. Try it sometime! I’m slowly transitioning back to the normal grind of working at a 9 to 5 job and having a mortgage, bills, and family. All still in progress I might add except for the bills part. Yup, that’s what I’ve decided to do instead of continuing to travel. My heart still longs for travel of the epic kind , and I don’t rule it out for the future but that womb does have an expiration date! I’m not saying I want to be a baby making machine by no means. However, I do want to continue the process of becoming a full fledged adult with all those responsibilities. Gone are the carefree days of lounging at the beach on some tiny paradise island called Koh Rong! Sigh…
I’ve decided to come back to blogging because I’m bursting with so many stories from my experience abroad that I have to get it out and write it down somewhere other than in a journal hiding in the dark forgotten recesses of my computer. I don’t talk about it as much as you would expect from someone who’s back from the ultimate adventure but occasionally I’ll mention something like the time I climbed Mt. Fuji or the time I was followed by a man in Mongolia when someone asks or when I’m reminded of it during a conversation. I’ve told myself I have to do better than this and so here I am. I hope you continue to read, enjoy, and live vicariously even if it’s only through my stories!
