The Traveblog

I will be doing traveling for business two or three times a year, and I’d like to share some of my experiences with all of you, I really enjoyed Twittering my trek cross-country last month. Now that I’m on my way to Japan for two weeks, Twitter doesn’t quite seem adequate for recording and sharing the experience.

It’s funny. Now that I’m faced with leaving the country for the first time in nearly 10 years, I’m more concerned about what is going on in the office! I will have to go in for a bit tomorrow, but that is ok. Better to leave things in a somewhat orderly state than to return to chaos.

The original header on this layout was a photograph of Ireland. Not only did I like the design of the page, in an odd way it also made it seem like a good choice. Ireland was the last place I did any really significant travelling. I lived in Galway for 6 months, and then spent a month in the UK. This, of course, took place in college, where you can do things like just decide to take your classes on another contienent for 6 months and then return. I really trace a lot of my current position back to that trip, where I figured out a great deal about myself. In a way, you don’t really see yourself very well most of the time. It takes being outside your normal comfort zone.

This is a rather disjointed beginning, but I suppose most beginnings are.

  1. How well I remember that first trip to Ireland. It was an extremely bold thing for you to do but you made the most of it and took a great deal from it. I’m sure the Japan trip will be the same way but I wouldn’t try to predict what gifts it might bring you.

    I’m so glad you’ll be keeping this blog. I can’t imagine a better way to share it. I don’t know if there can be a greater joy for a parent than to see her child have these kinds of opportunities — not only the Japan trip but the truck trip as well. All the money in the world wouldn’t give a parent the power to buy such experiences. Unearned, they wouldn’t be the same.

    In other words, I’m so proud of you. I love you!!

  2. Have an extraordinary time on your new adventure – travel is the greatest education when you get to know the people as well!
    I’ll try very hard to prevent your Mom from hurting herself on her new “yacht” while you’re away. A Gulfport “chambermaid” (volunteer) and a Town Shores resident.
