Welcome to Wanderlust! This is where you can read the constantly unfolding story of my adventures backpacking through Southeast Asia. That’s right, in just seven short days I’ll embark on a seven month journey from my landlocked home state to the Far East and back again (I hope). This means you now have the exciting opportunity to watch, from the safety and comfort of your own home, as I battle everything from language barriers to giant spiders to Traveler’s Diarrhea.
If that last line disgusts you, you might want to reconsider visiting. There are times when it’s going to get rather sweaty and unpleasant around here. But that’s just one side of travel. If you are intrigued instead of dissuaded, you will undoubtedly be rewarded with colorful tales wrought with peril and a smattering of tasty foods. You will even get to view the results of my attempts to photograph things of exquisite beauty.
If all this sounds pretty cool to you, feel free to read a bit more about me
, learn about my journey
, what I’m carrying
, and maybe have a few questions answered
while you’re here (like why I’m going in the first place). Want to make sure you don’t miss a thing (I mean really, wouldn’t you be pretty bummed if you missed a post where I got bit by a shark, mugged, flooded, or otherwise suffered from humiliation and discomfort)? You can subscribe to Wanderlust via email updates or with your favorite feed reader by using the menu at the top right of this screen. How’s that for convenience!
For an even deeper layer of travel-stalking, my latest Twitter post appears at the top of the site. If you want to get up close and personal, follow me
As a final note, Wanderlust will always remain ad-free and easy on the eyes. There is no schedule for blog updates as my ability to connect to the webs will wax and wane. As will, I presume, my sanity. Thanks for stopping by!
If you want to get in touch with me personally about something blog- or trip-related send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, feel free to comment below with feedback, suggestions, and exclamation points!
