Well, it was bound to happen eventually. I'm on Facebook and Twitter. I spend more time on Sporcle, StumbleUpon and reading blogs than is strictly healthy for my eyesight (which was poor to begin with). It seems like there is only one logical progression for me to make in the realm of internet usage and social media. I have started a blog.
The main impetus behind starting this blog was my sister, Kristen. She told me that since I am studying abroad in Belgium next summer, I should begin a blog to keep everyone back here connected with my travels. And, surprisingly, I agreed with her logic. So, I decided to start a travel blog!!! But not just any old travel blog, oh no. One that explores the deeper metaphysical issues of spending time abroad in a foreign country.
~If a waffle falls on the ground in Belgium, does the five second rule still apply?
~Do I take the path less travelled, or have I gotten lost by accident?
~Is love the true universal language?
~Are brussels sprouts called brussels sprouts in Brussels?
The answers...yes, I should have just followed the other tourists, no (and these lovely French people have no idea what you're talking about), and I have no idea.
As you might have noticed, I said I was going abroad in the fall and it is definitely not fall yet. In fact, it's barely even spring. Well, I think that I have the personality for blogging. A tad obsessive, schedule oriented, opinionated, I could do this all day. So, I wanted to start this now because I feel like I should get into the routine of writing a blog, build a fan base (that is probably mostly related to me, let's be honest), and I want this blog to be a blog about my life and food and travel in general, not just this specific trip.
So, I am going to start writing this blog now! I will definitely update twice a week, but possibly more. There will be reviews of cheap eats in DC (where I live now), food reviews in general, recipes tailored to those of us that are space and equipment poor, and random thoughts. I hope that you stick around for the ride.
