This Blog’s Purpose

IMG_0951To be honest I’m not quite sure yet what it is, at least not all it is.

When I first started my blog it was just for my family and friends, it was a way to tell everyone about my experience at the same time and not have to answer the same questions over and over. As time passed and the travels continued I realized how much I enjoyed writing about my travels.
