7 years, 3 months and 15 days ago

That’s when I should’ve started this blog. I could’ve started it 8 years ago, when I first planned my Big Trip. I definitely meant to start it at some point.

Well, I’m ready now.

Unfortunately this means that I have a lot to catch up on. I mean a lot. It needn’t be so bad, but I decided to start at the beginning. And I will include photos, because I have about 10,000 of them. Fear not, though, I won’t post all 10,000 of them. Only a selection with every post as suitable.

I considered using a dedicated travel blog, but I want something that is uniquely me, not something generic where I can chose the layout, font or even background colours.

Eventually I may take even more creative control, depending on how this goes. I have an idea of my ideal travel blog; I’ll see what I can do with the chosen layout and theme for now.

I’m actually excited about this. It’s been a long time coming. I will reach back right to the beginning of my trip. It’s been quite a journey and this blog will get personal sometimes, whenever I want it to be. But I will stay on topic, this is going to be a dedicated travel blog.

I’ve chosen the title for it from a Richard Bach novel of the very same title. I’ve written about it on my regular blog of randomness, not the novel, but why I always end up running from safety. I’ve mentioned it here and there.

Anyhow, I very much hope that you’ll enjoy hearing about my past, present and future travels. At least I am not forcing you to sit through a lengthy tale I’m telling you. You’ll be reading this, because you want to know more.

So, thanks for stopping by and happy trails.
