Here's my first blog!
I'm doing this now because we are T-minus 2 weeks from lift off and I want to make sure this thing works. So this is a test run. I pretty much have no idea how this thing works (can you leave me comments?), but I figure I will just sit here and blabber for a few lines in hopes to get some thoughts out of my head since I am freaking out a little bit. Ok, a lot. I keep having realizations that I am leaving the country with a one-way ticket and no return date. It's slightly horrifying, but way more exhilarating!
I hope you find this blog interesting, although I doubt it will ever fully capture the experiences I am going to have. But I will do my best to recount them here for you in an attempt to make you feel like part of the journey. Side note- if you would like to actually become part of the journey, feel free to meet us in the country of your choice! I will try to update this at least bi-weekly, and once a week would be ideal, but as we are not bringing a laptop I will be depending on hostel computers, internet cafes, and people nice enough to take us in. So forgive me if I post sporadically.
If you have suggestions/comments/final thoughts, now is your chance to share them...
