I know it seems like a rushed trip with little time to stay in each place, but those of you who know how I travel or have traveled with me know that I don't stay in one place too long.  I like to get in, see what I came for and then keep moving.  I am spending multiple days, however, in Buenos Aires, Tunis, Paris, Krakow, Amman, Delhi and Siem Reap, so that will give me a little bit of a break from the traveling every week.  The trip is built around seeing the Taj Mahal, Angkor Wat, Petra, and Krakow.  All the other places are countries that I have always wanted to see.  We can all thank that National Geographic subscription my grandma gave me when I was a kid for making me want to see the world in person.  I spent hours and hours looking at all those pictures and wondering how I would ever get to travel the world.

I will try to update this journal whenever I can find an internet cafe when I start the trip so check back from time to time.  I am keeping the journal closed to to outside comments since it's out there publicly on the internet and you never know who will be reading it.  I didn't want some random freak ruining it for all of usm especially since my parents are reading it, too.   If you have any questions or comments, let me know and I will try answer them in the journal here or in an email!!  Lastly, if you want to know when I've updated the journal, there is an area where you can subscribe with your email address and you will know right off when something new is on here.

Enjoy,

John

P.S.  This website has a feature that tracks the trip on a map so you can see where I have been.  These pics in this posting right here are all ones I found on the web to give you an idea of where I will be headed.  I will put my own pics of course in my entries once the trip starts whenever I can download them off my camera.
