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,
