I've decided to start my travel blog a little early. I want to record some of the process of getting ready for the trip as well as the actual trip. So far things are going well - my job is winding down, and I've got a few long-term research projects that I can take on the road with me, but nothing pressing. Most of my pending publications have gone to press, so I'm slowly freeing myself of my day-to-day. I'll continue teaching yoga until September, but then that's over as well.

Sometimes when I think about it, I really wonder what I'm doing. Quitting a very stable and steady way of life to travel the world?! And I have to admit, I get the same reaction from most people. One of the things that is helping me through this process is definitely Travelpodium. Just talking to the people on there and getting their feedback is making me feel a lot more comfortable. Mostly I'm not feeling nervous about it anymore- just excited.

I've also started the planning process, and have some maps of where I'm going to go. You can check them out at http://home.cogeco.ca/~sadd/travel I'll get an actual domain name at some point in time.

Other than that, my day-to-day is pretty mellow. Hanging out with friends, yoga, climbing, a little writing and teaching..
