As most of you know (well, you all know since you've asked enough times to lead me to create this blog), I am about to embark on a 6 week adventure in Southeast Asia. What many of you don't know is that this was all made possible because of my mother. This was her graduation gift to me. You wouldn't think it by the worried expression she wears on her face whenever a certain word starting with 'Thai' and ending with 'land' is mentioned, but she was never one to prevent my dreams coming true. So thanks, Mom, for making this dream a reality.
I cannot promise you that my writing will be often, nor will it be beautiful. I've tried writing in a journal once when I studied abroad in China- only to find that most of my writing trailed off the page as I dozed off before my thoughts were complete. I'm glad typing will prevent this from happening, but I must warn you- just because I have an audience does NOT mean my thoughts will make sense!
So the adventure begins Saturday, when I take my first steps in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. For now, I will be stuffing my face full of cheese, pizza, ice cream, and other mouth-watering food that doesn't involve noodles or rice!
