I have been traveling with my boyfriend around the world since October 1, 2008. Lil Dave (the monkey) is writing a blog about all of our travels. So check it out! I should have posted that last year but didn’t.
I decided to write about my thoughts on backpacking. I’ve had a lot lately.
I knew I would miss my family. But, I seriously miss them A LOT!! I miss playing with my nieces and nephews the most. Ivan calls his parents on Skype a lot and writes them e-mails. So, I know it’s partly my fault since I don’t call my parents nearly enough. I do write e-mail though to my brother, sister and sister-in-law. It’s just hard being away from them. I know they’re doing good.. just wish I could see them! I recently took a nap this afternoon. I dreamt I was back home and visiting my family. It felt so good to see them! I’m going to try to call more – so I won’t be so homesick.
I feel out of the loop with everybody. I have no clue what people are doing lately. I try to write some people – but it’s hard writing everybody. I just wish they would fill me in more on what’s happening. I know when I get back, I’ll hear many stories. And I know people will ask what I did on my RTW trip. I just encourage everybody to read the blog. That really shows what I’ve done.
