Dear readers,

Thank you for your patience.

Since I started this travel blog several months ago, the site has undergone several changes—design, writing, or otherwise. While I’ve tried to find interesting stories to share, I haven’t been traveling as much as I’ve been planning to travel, which makes travel writing rather challenging. Now I want to share what’s to come for travelsofadam.com.

A Big Trip

This past week I submitted my resignation at a job I’ve had for almost 3 full years. It’s never easy to leave behind something or somewhere enjoyable. Add in a slew of excellent co-workers, friends & a city I’ve called home for 7 years, and you can understand this has been a long, challenging week.

I’ve decided to leave behind my city & my job so that I can travel around the world. It won’t always be easy, but nothing really should be. Easy is boring.

Where am I going?

Upwards & onwards! Or more accurately: I’ve got a few people I need/want to see around the US—mostly family (especially my brand new niece)—before I leave. Then I’ll head for the Mediterranean, with the first stop in southern Spain. My itinerary is pretty rough, and very flexible, but here’s the general gist:

Spain > Morocco > Egypt > Israel > Turkey > Croatia > India > Nepal > Thailand > Vietnam > Philippines > Australia

That’s already 12 countries in an expected 7 months, which already seems unrealistic. I have every intention to modify my route as I go along. The world is just too damn big to see it all. Nothing is planned after Australia because I’m honestly hoping to settle down there with a work/travel visa before I complete my circumnavigation of the globe.

Obviously I’ll be using this site for stories, photos, videos & details of my trip. However, you should also check out my Twitter and Facebook pages, where I post travel-related tweets, retweets, articles & links separate from this account and each other. I’m also starting to figure out videography, so hopefully I’ll get some good clips uploaded to my YouTube channel.

I’m also working on a newsletter which I’ll send out once a month with travel details and blog summaries. The first edition will go out before I leave the country (let’s say by 1 May).

On interacting with my readers

I really do want to say thank you to all of you for reading, commenting & tweeting here or on my other networks. I’m relatively new to this whole travel blogging community, and I’ve honestly enjoyed every obstacle. I can’t wait to get on the road to share more stories and more photos with all of you.

As I gear up to the final weeks before departure, I hope to share my excitement & my anxiety in this space. Look out world! I’m on my way.

Thanks for listening,
Adam

    Thanks Mela! That seems to be the case just about everywhere in the world: tourist prices vs local prices.

    Drop me a line if you do find yourself in the Philippines. You'll find that it would be incredibly cheap to have a local help you in reservations and stuff. Some of them do tend to rip off tourists.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for commenting Nisha!

  4. All the best !! You are taking a big step.
    Looking forward to your experiences in these countries. I have been to 5 of them so kind of excited to know how different are your views. :)

  5. Adam

    Definitely! It'd be so awesome to meet up on the other side of the world.

  6. I'm thinking Nepal in Nov and India Dec-Jan – will keep an eye on your schedule.

  7. Adam

    OH yes! Lots of strange emotions swirling around.

    As far as India/Nepal, it looks like it should be around Oct/Nov

  8. Congratulations! Interesting mix of excitement, anticipation and apprehension, right? I'm looking forward to reading about the trip – when do you expect to get to India and Nepal – I expect to head there from the opposite direction this fall.

    I'm all ears for you Adam! Congrats on handing in that resgination and I'm looking very forward to you future posts and videos. I'm excited to see what the world will bring to you. I'll be with you every step of the way, just on the other side of the screen. :) Cheers!

    Congrats on everything Adam. Are we going to be able to squeeze in another travel blogger meetup before you go?!

    Also, if you need a roomie for Australia, holler.

  11. Adam

    Live away :) Though I do enjoy reading about all your exploits, too!

  12. Adam

    Okay, I've been a total slacker! I definitely want another travel blogger meetup. I'll schedule one soon (I've said this before….).

    Dude, and you should totally move to Australia. It's going to be wild!

    Thanks Francesca!

    I'll check out the site. Looks interesting.

  14. Adam

    Thanks Monica!

    Sucks that you'll be in such a dark, dark office. Still can't get over that!

  15. Francesca Maggi

    Congratulations! When you're on the road, I'd love to hear some of your language mishaps at http://www.upyourbottom.com

  16. Ahh so exciting! I can't wait to live through your experiences…enviously.

  17. Adam

    I hope so, too!

  18. So excited for you Adam! I hope our travels intersect somewhere on the globe!

  19. Sounds great! You're making it happen, and by doing so opening yourself up to the unknown and fantastic. Good luck to you.

  20. Adam

    Definitely headed for the unknown! I'm getting more and more excited with every step. And in the past week, and in the next week, the steps are just getting bigger & bigger. First leaving my job and soon leaving my home.

    Thanks Joya!

    It was a big, big step, and now I feel closer than ever (which, granted, I am). It's all very exciting & exhilarating—not to mention exhausting!

  22. Joya

    Congratulations Adam! Leaving the job is a big step but your itinerary looks awesome and I can't wait to read all about your travels.
