Home Again

Fullerton, United States

I'm back home again and 'resting' from the life-changing journey of the past few weeks. I especially want to thank everyone who stood ready to call in the rescue team in case I went missing.

It took me a couple of days after arriving in Mongolia to 'get in the groove' and get China out of my mind, but I really enjoyed specific moments. It would be unfair to compare the two experiences. I went to Mongolia to get as far away from everything, and the trip afforded me the chance for self-reflection in solitude. In China 'people interaction' was what I enjoyed the most, albeit unexpected, and through these interactions I had the opportunity to re-evaluate how I view the world.

One of the lessons I learned on the trip is that people make a place special, and home is the most special place because family and friends. I hope you enjoyed reading about my experience, and I hope it inspires you to go on your own journey.

It was a wonderful experience, and it's good to be home!

Here is the link to some of the photos from each place I visited. Enjoy!

Welcome to my blog!

Many of you have heard me wax poetic about the open plains and the nomadic life of Mongolia. Well, I'm finally getting off the couch and trekking to the edge of the world in search of my private Shangri-la.
