It’s been 365 days since my first blog post. And this may be my last, but I haven’t quite decided yet.
I’ve been home for 3 weeks. Many people have asked if my husband is happy that I’m home. He seems to be, but says I’m still “on probation”. Something about a 45-day rule until I regain “wife status”.
I have 6 or 7 half-written blog posts. Some of them are about my very favorite places, and some are about my hardest experiences over the past year. Therefore, they are the most difficult to write. And now I’m back into the swing of the 60 hour work week. So we’ll see.
A few motivations to finish them:
1) To live up the the Pulitzer Prize that a lovely group of people I traveled with in Africa, self-named “The Party”, awarded me.
2) To showcase the work of my constant traveling companion, “Tripod” (so named by the intrepid Nasreen).
3) To capture these exceptional moments while they’re still relatively fresh, and before they get blurry in my mind.
4) To answer a few of my most asked questions: when were you most scared; did you get sick; were you lonely; what was your favorite place?
In any case, I’ve enjoyed keeping the blog and very much appreciate the comments people have written. It will make the best souvenir of my 2010 RTW.
