Me trying to document my experiences as profesional explorer.
The start of the real adventure?
Although it is 14 months into our round the world adventure, i cant help but think Indonesia, or Bali to be precise, is the the actual start. Although Bali is now concidered to be Australia`s back garden, its going to be the first place that will be an actual cultureshock for me. Im not just talking about the Language barrier, where im sure english will be ok on the main streets and in the more popular touristy towns and cities, its going to be everything that has do do with everyday life and culture. So while its called a "shock' its one that im very excited about as a backpacker. Throw my passion for photography into the mix and things such as religion, food, transport, communication, houses etc are a photographers dream and also become ingredients in what will hopefully be a journy remembered for the rest of my life.
So while my writing is never going to be up there with the likes of Shakespere, T.S Elliott or even bloody Dan Brown and not really having any idea of how a travel blog should be, Im just going to write down what feels and looks right with some facts thrown in for good measure. Will it be a diary, travel guide, blog or just me talking trash? Who knows? Maybe as the entries build up il find a voice and some kind of direction.
So............. I hope my attempt at documenting our adventure will keep you entertained, informed and if anything just giving you more infomation than a facebook status update .
