I’m in Africa! And I have a blog. I think that pretty much covers the basics.
The blog’s official goal is to reassure my family as regularly as possible that I’m still alive. I’m also hoping to (1) keep a record of my travels in case I completely fail at keeping a written travel journal (which experience suggests is very to extremely likely) and (2) make my friends just jealous enough to want to come join me for a while (but not jealous enough to hide me on facebook like I’ve been doing to my unemployed traveling friends for the past two years).
I hope you enjoy it! And if you don’t, you never have to look at it again, unlike the mass emails that I would be sending you otherwise 🙂
