For years, it's been my tradition to stop and have the famous pea soup at Anderson's in Buelton, California. http://www.peasoupandersens.net/
Now that the trip is over, I was reflecting back on events and had some parting thoughts for you. Traveling is great! (what a revelation goober!) Sure, it's fun, exciting, adventurous, interesting, etc. but I mean it does great things TO you. Opening yourself up to new things invariably changes you. Having new experiences, meeting new people and cultures gives you a better appreciation for what you already have right in front of you. It opens your eyes to other possibilities and helps you be less close-minded. Travel will help you to be more tolerant toward yourself and others. So I say, "Get your butt out there people"! Travel makes better people, and that can only help make this a better world. My Mom sent me a great quote from Ghandi, it goes "Be the change you want to see in the world". Fantastic! : )
So about that...
One of my bestest buddies and travel companions, Hao Zhong, just invited me on a new adventure. Just before I start school in June, we are taking a trip to Greece.
So the road leads on to new adventures. I'll start a new blog for that when the time comes, but anyone who wants to get off the bus has the option of unsubscribing. You can reach me anytime via my regular email address at: firstname.lastname@example.org or on my Facebook page.
Thanks to all my family and friends for your support!
