Well, this is it. Far from the end, but currently the end of Asia for me… at least this time around. I’m sitting in the Taipei, Taiwan airport right now awaiting my transfer flight back to America. By the end of the day I will be in Los Angeles, and doing my best to deal with the culture shock of returning home.16 months have past since I sold my house and set off on my grand world adventure. It has been quite a ride, with more twists, turns and unexpected excitement and revelation than I could have ever expected. There are no regrets to be found, and if anything my dread of the end is the most prevelant. Alas, now my goal is to settle back into a quasi-American lifestyle and find enough income to get back on the road again. It is hard to begin processing all the stimuli I have encountered, but I’m sure I will gain more clarity and words of explanation as time goes on. I’m also sure that the massive game of catch up, copying about 100 pages of hand-written journal and uploading the last 5 months of photos will give me quite a refresher. So, luckily for all of you readers who have been unfortunately neglected, there will be some new content flowing onto this site in the next few months.
