Also new for this adventure: I will be leaving technology behind. No cell phone, no laptop, not even an electric shaver. Nothing. Mostly I am doing this just to prove to myself that I am still a human being and not some kind of robot-pawn-of-industry... and in part because I am attempting to travel with only a tiny carry-on bag. I also have this romantic idea: I want to travel in such a way that- should all my possessions be stolen- I would not even be slightly bothered. Just pick up and carry on. I am sure I would freak out a little bit- but getting a new passport seems a lot easier than getting a new computer at this point. So there. I want to be a bit more care-free. As a blogger this means that I will not be updating twitter, Facebook, or this site... for at least 10 days. An exercise in abstinence. All this being said- I will be traveling with a photographer- so brace yourselves for a barrage of posts following the trip.
