So, this is a whole new world for me. The blogging, I mean, not the travel. I’ve been doing that for a long time now.
I have this trip to Thailand coming up and it’s something different for me. First, I’ll be traveling alone… which I’ve done before, but never quite like this. This trip will be almost three weeks in a country with squiggle letters and no Latin root helping me guess meanings. Just getting myself out of the airport seems daunting. Secondly, I will be volunteering for a week as part of the vacation. I’m really excited about this. I’m thrilled to put my Wildlife Conservation degree to work after shelving it for so long. I’ll be spending a week in the Surin Province near the Cambodian border working on an elephant preserve. For these two reasons I thought it would be a good idea to start a blog. Not to mention, I have people that want proof I’ve not been abducted and sold into a sex ring. I keep telling them not to worry about that with me. I’m waaaay too old for those demographics. 🙂 but if I continue to update the blog, their fears can be quelled.
I hope I can make this interesting enough that people will want to read the blog and experience this new territory with me.
