Let the Adventure Begin!

With that being said, I bid farewell to my profile from the past, and greet my Blog of the future. Ironically, my vision for this Blog is to tell a story which retraces my steps of the past. I entitled the Blog, "Transformations through Travel", intentionally. I have devoted most of my life to exploring the world, its people, and the diversity of cultures we humans have created on this planet. Never am I ceased to be amazed by some extraordinary act of kindness, generosity, or warm greeting even if there isn't a common language spoken. The universal smile in most cases has worked wonders in bridging the gap where verbal communication has not been possible.
My desire is to share with you; my reader, my friends, my family, and perhaps in the end myself, as there is no guarantee any of you will be coming to visit this Blog, the journey I have taken through the myriad of trips from my past until present. Much of what I will write will be from memory, some from journals. I am doing this without an outline, no plan, or agenda. I do have my photographs, nearly 2000 of them which will help guide my storytelling as they are logged chronologically. I shall do my best to keep the Blog interesting, as well as amusing. I too do not wish to put myself to sleep while writing.
I gave this Blog a big title, therefore I have a big task ahead of me. Let the adventure begin!
