Travel Writing

Hello, Europe! I’ve Missed You

It’s great to be back in Europe.

There’s something so relaxed here. Even among the hustle and bustle of Berlin people take the time for a proper coffee.

I’ve just arrived from the USA via Iceland.

A proper coffee sits on the table before me.

And before I’m tempted to run off to the nearest source of German beer, I wanted to take a few minutes to share my thoughts.

Last summer I was in Italy, with a rented room in Palermo and plenty of time to write.

But I didn’t.

Sicily was overwhelming. The beauty, the smells, the food, and the warm people were too much to resist.

At least I managed to learn some Italian.

I was hoping to do more.

This time around I’m committed to sharing what I learn on my blog.

I’ve never been good at this.

It’s much easier for me to finish a big project with a clear goal than to be consistent over an extended period of time.

But I’m learning a lot of cool things out here, so it’s only right that I share.

In addition to travel, I’ve got stuff in the works about how to make a living on the road, personal freedom, and doing what you love.

If you’re one of the first, intrepid few to visit, I thank you.
