Here we go, this is it... Entry #1 of my 9 month jaunt in the Middle East and the Far East...

So... everything is now packed, stored, sold, bought, planned, researched, scrutinized, reserved and ready for Feb 20th when I start my 3 days (ouch) of flights and stop-overs to get to my first destination; the "snow-less", beautifully sun drenched, beach infested, "snow-less", island of Sri Lanka. Ohh ya, did I mention "snow-less"? :)

No matter how much planning I've done ( 1 year, 3 months, 2 days and 21 minutes of it but who's counting ), I'm sure I've forgotten about something. What ever happens though, you'll be able to follow along through this web site. Seeing as how 80% of the countries I am visiting are in or have recently been in some kind of war/unrest/dispute, it should be quite an adventure.

If you haven't subscribed to my travelogue yet and you don't mind getting the occasional reminder that I am still alive in your inbox from time to time, you can subscribe on this page ( in the green box at the top ). By subscribing you'll receive ( drum roll please ) an email when I update my travelogue containing a link to my new entry. Of course, if you're reading this entry because you've gotten an email already, then you're already subscribed ... if you would like to unsubscribe ( hopefully not ), you can do that too from the email you'll receive.

Now for some more cool information on the trip:

-- Want to know where I am going?

Check out the attached maps ( up top ). The maps are a little hard to follow ( there goes my career as a cartographer ) but hey it's the best I could do.

Ok, back to the planning, research, and all that stuff.

More to come...
