Because no good story starts with ‘salad’, I’m going to begin by setting the tone for my blog – if we are all being hand on heart honest with ourselves, the best travel stories always involve some sort of mischief or heart break. Mine are no exception. Because of that, I want my blog to be honest, uncensored, and vulnerable. No topic is off-limits, and no amount of swear words are too much.
I have experience blogging before (if you could even call it that), but at the time I used my blog as a means to let my family and friends back home know I was alive and thriving; there was very little entertainment value to my entries, unfortunately for them. The lazier side of my personality saw my blog as an outlet to reach the masses – no need for answering the gazillion emails or Facebook messages that would flood my way – dream result. Now, however, it’s a bit different. I’m 29, behave like a quasi-adult, and no longer feel the need to check in on a constant basis. Now, I want to share my stories because I think they are pretty rad. Not because I need to let my parents know I didn’t die bungee jumping, or white water rafting, or shark cage diving, or sand boarding, or….
More than anything, I want this blog to be documented proof for my kiddies (who do not exist at this stage in time, thankfully) that their mom was a badass. By the time they are old enough for me to tell them these stories they will likely accuse me of being senile (which, to be fair, I probably will be), but alas, everything on the internet is true so I will just kindly direct them here.
I hope you enjoy reading about my journeys as much as I have enjoyed living them. Happiness is only real when shared, so share I will.
