I often think that I should blog more though I’m not completely sure why. I don’t think that people care that much if I blog or not but I have a desire to communicate and sometimes I do this through writing. I have noticed that when I am travelling all the extra time I spend talking gives me very little time to write. Those conversations I have with other people are more important than the one I have here. In the past week I have had long conversations with strangers on planes. I have been told tales of life in the Middle East, of life in Japan in the 90s, and of growing up in America during the Cold War. Even though everyone I spoke to came from a different culture their stories were threaded with experiences of life and family that I could relate to. Thanks to them my long journeys were not boring.
I will be travelling until the 9th December. Today I am in the Netherlands. So far it has been a perfectly peaceful morning.
