Long time no see, huh? What can I say, other than life caught up to me in ways I couldn’t escape? School and work have been rough lately, forcing me to take an unplanned and unwanted hiatus from this little project.
2014 is coming to a close soon, and as I look back on everything that’s happened this year, I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given and the experiences that I’ve had. Travel, especially world travel, is one of those things that not very many people have the chance to experience. It’s a privilege that I’ve been granted due to the financial and emotional support of my friends and family, and I owe them so much. Travel is something that is very key to my person, something that helps me grow and learn in ways that are totally unique. I always thought the term wanderlust was clichè, but I find myself daydreaming about far-off places and looking up airplane tickets in my spare time. And I think this means I have the bug.
My Middle East adventure is fast approaching! In seven weeks I’ll board a flight to Amman, Jordan, and I have so much I still need to do to get ready. But this weekend I took care of the most important thing- buying shoes.
So, I will just start off by saying that I’m no travel connoisseur. I don’t really have any great advice about traveling around the world or any stories of grand adventure. But I’ve been a few places here and there, I took some nice pictures, and I know a little bit about not looking like a tourist.
