It’s been two months since my last post. I found the harsh reality of the difficulties of attempting to blog while traveling without a computer, and the most difficult of difficulties: laziness.
Or, let’s spin that to make it seem less unforgiving: I was having a blast going through Mediterranean Europe and just couldn’t find the time to become irritated by the small letters on my IPhone.
My rest has ended, and expect a slew of Camino and travel-related posts to come. I’ve taken this summer to document the weird, the absurd, and obnoxious, and they are yours, all yours, within a matter of days.
Maybe this “I’m back” post is less heartfelt or illustrative than one might have hoped for. Maybe you’re thinking,
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN YASMINE/ALLISON?
(That was a direct quote from all of you). One of my favorite bloggers Erika of El Camino Rubi just came back from her summer hiatus; she sent her readers a gushingly descriptive and breathtaking account of her summer and the personal transformations, epiphanies, and dilemmas. She even wrote a goodbye email earlier in the summer to explain her future lack of communication.
Excuses aside, I’m going back to blogging, and I’m excited for what’s to spill out of my keyboard. I hope you enjoy the anecdotes and with any luck, find some helpful advice for a future trip or overseas-job mistake.
Until very soon…here’s a picture to get your taste buds going.
