“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine
Hooray, I am a blogger! I blog. I have a blog. No one yet reads my blog. Hopefully someone will read my blog posts and be entertained and intrigued. Blogging could be fun. Have I mentioned this is my blog?
Now that we have that cleared up, let's move on. I love to travel. Who doesn't? Actually, wait, I do know a couple people who don't (Grandpa Tom, I'm side-eying you) but I know few people who don't enjoy a good travel adventure now and then. I have had my share of adventures abroad over the years, and yet still consistently have the 'travel itch'. My husband Dustin and I just returned from a 2 week backpacking trip to Europe with our friends Ryan and Kari Hannay, and I am already excited to think about our next big adventure, which just might be to Rio, Brazil (see here and here) with my best friend Ashley and her husband Chester! That's what I want my blog to be about. I want to document the memories I have and share some good stories, while planning for and exploring future adventures.
Why the blog's name? Because, not only is it one of the best Dave Matthew's songs of all time (enjoy) but it seems everywhere I have ever gone outside the US, you encounter this warning. Sometimes it's not warranted, and other times, it is (cough cough Ryan Hannay).
There. Blog intro complete. Nothing fancy, but it will do. So let's dive in.
