I've always been fascinated with the world, but I haven't actually seen much of it. This Sunday (local time), that is about to change. I am finally going to get off this continent. Don't get me wrong, North America has been and always will be my home. But, sometimes you've just got to go have a look see for yourself.
I will be going to London first. After a quick stop in Amsterdam, I will be joined by my wife for some time in Scotland. From the pictures I've seen, it looks like a beautiful place. In my experience here in NA, pictures rarely do the actual view justice. I will be posting some inadequate pictures on my Facebook page and I'll put a few here, too. I will not be tweeting. Frankly, I think tweeting should be left for the birds.
After Scotland, we are going to visit some friends in southern Spain. They promise to give us the grand tour, which will include Gibraltar and a bit of Morocco. That last bit means we will actually get to land on two separate continents.
I will be using the blog here to comment on people, culture, drugs, architecture, music and bad customer service. I hope that my little travelogue will be slightly more interesting than the typical offering as it will contain some of the far reaching philosophy that my 5 - 6 regular readers have come to expect. Since most of you are friends and family, you got more of it than you wanted even before I started blogging, but...tough shit. That's me and that's what you get.
See you on the other side of the pond.
