I told myself long ago that I would never be THAT traveler, you know, the one who blogs and posts pictures from every vacation. I certainly do not fall in the "dedicated traveler" category; I think I still have photos on my camera from last year. 

 However, 2013 ushers in new adventures that warrant new resolutions. 

 I have always longed to study abroad during my college years, especially after witnessing first-hand the adventures of a dear cousin who studied abroad in Rome, Italy. My degree program at the University of Missouri made spring 2013 the prime semester to do so. Thus, I leave behind sunny Los Altos, CA, and snowy Columbia, MO, for the thrilling city of Manchester, UK. 

  I am, sadly, not only leaving behind warmer weather, but also some very dear family and friends! Contemplating the difficulties of keeping in touch led me to consider keeping a travel blog. The purpose of this blog is to keep a time line of entries for my personal enjoyment and to have a convenient means of updating friends and family despite the time change. 

 I cannot promise a blog entry every day- that would be absurd and obsessive. My goal is to post three entries a week, whether a photo, video, or written post. 

 Read what you want, whenever you want. I only hope that my life in Manchester will prove exciting and worthy of both my efforts and your readership!

I just love you and am glad you are doing a travel blog. Obviously I will be stalking this obsessively! :)
