About this blog

The day after I graduated High School two friends and I embarked on what we thought would be a modest trip through five European countries. Our good friend Anouschka had invited us to stay at her mother's house in Switzerland for the summer and we were anticipating taking some train rides to a few surrounding countries while we were there.

Eighteen countries, three continents and one love later I returned home a changed person. I've tried to keep the wording/spelling as accurate as I could but some modifications were unavoidable.I haven't read these entries in over fifteen years so I have placed {brackets} to signify my updates, clarifications and reactions to the original entries.

Despite my frustrations at the time, I assure you I no longer harbor any negative feelings toward anyone mentioned in here, and I will always have a soft spot in my heart for all of those involved. I only hope these journals are taken in context and can be enjoyed as a snapshot of a teenager in love and completely out of his element.


(*Nearly all the pictures in this blog were taken by Tara, whose thoughtfulness I am forever indebted to. Also, I've labeled as many pics as I could but you will need to click on them to see the comments.)
