Not all who wander are lost...Follow me 'Round the World in 2008: A Year in the Life of a girl, her backpack, Tevas, guidebook, imagination and sense of adventure.

a trip by Suzette Saint-Pierre
From: December 30th 2007
Until: December 27th 2008

2008 Solo 'Round the World: Angkor Wat, Taj Mahal, Indonesia, Tibet, India, Everest Base Camp (not the summit people!), Thailand, Nepal, Myanmar, Malaysia, Laos and Dubai. Though who really knows....

I might not be making entries EVERYday, but I'll try to do it most days. Because this blog will be my main point of contact for my family to know I'm ok, it might have more details that the casual reader might want, apologies in advance.

Thanks for coming along with me!
Love,
Suz
