My first post on what I hope to be a fun and informative chronicle of my trip around the world. My first trip to Europe when I took a backpack and traveled for a month, I wrote longhand in a journal. That was before PCs became in vogue and the Internet was non-existent (to the public, anyway). Now I have the ability to not only record for posterity, but add pictures and share it with everyone as it happens. Enjoy!
