Tonight marks the end of an era(4o countries & 23 months of traveling), this is my last update from the road for what will always be referred to as the initial swan dive in the unknown. It was like doing a swan dive off the 13th floor of an office building in a full tuxedo with top hat on to a road that was recently flooded due to a sewer mane explosion. Got swept away by the current and consequently saw lots of the world…
Never thought it would end like this but such is life. To be honest, it’s been almost two years since I’ve been gone and if I don’t go home now, it will be 3 years until I see everyone. Why would a gentleman go home in the winter? That’s right, there are no valid reasons. Besides the obvious which is my family, friends, special events and the fleeting Ottawa summer… Saw a photo of my grand father tagged in my cousins post it said “great grandpa”.
He’s looking so old, that was my breaking point. Rest of Balkans aren’t going anywhere.
This blog isn’t going to the blogyard which is a graveyard for blogs. It’s being redone into something special until I leave again in a month or so. This blog and my traveling are moving like a freight train, it won’t just stop. Time to rest up, reconnect and recharge my personal and business life. 23 months of going hard on the road is intense, I assure you.
Look forward to more videos, I like videos, they are fun and different. Also this blog has done a great job in my estimation of attracting and retaining organic readers. It has an audience, now it’s time to build more of a community. Sick of standing on this soap box and screaming into the unknown masses who come daily but never even leave so much as a few bread crumbs, indeed.
40+ countries and roughly 23 months, not bad for no plan and a one way ticket.
Please rest assured, this is not the end. It’s the end of this era and come fall when the leaves start changing color and the people of Ottawa stop complaining about the heat and transfer such complaints to the cold, yours truly will be gone again. Have an interview perhaps in the Philippines for something big, if not Central & South America seems like a good place to do what this blog is known for…
All joking aside, it’s been fun writing this blog, I’ve loved sharing the adventure with you and hope you’ve enjoyed reading about it. This blog has been a labor of love as I don’t sell ads, it’s time to step it up and start sharing tips and tricks with you. The internet is filled with “experts” who have no experience, this was the foundation for what is to come.
Question: What would you like to see more of here?
P.S: When it comes to summer, don’t forget that Canada is a special place…
P.P.S: Going to Toronto on the 11th.
