About Me & Trip Schedule

Hi! Welcome to my travel blog! I am leaving in January 2012 for a year of traveling. I am 34 and traveling solo (planning on making some friends along the way!) and was presented with an opportunity to travel. So I quit my job, rented my house, and started planning!

I have a rough idea of my agenda:  I am going to be starting my travels in SE Asia, planning on spending some time among the pacific islands, then down to New Zealand and Australia. After that I am going to go over to South America and start south and work my way north to Latin America. I will go back home in the US for about 3-4 weeks and then head over to Europe for the Fall. Everything is pretty tentative right now as I am trying not to over plan (I have a long history of that…). I will be blogging as often as I have wifi and sharing pictures from my trip. Please feel free to comment!

UPDATE:  I have my trip roughly scheduled through the end of April:

    Very jealous.

    I actually visited Orchha, Chanderi and Bandhavgarh last May, and I’m sure you’ll have a great time!
