|Journaling on Lake Titicaca Peru - 2007|
Usually, I keep a journal when I travel. Ole-school style - pen and paper. It is not the same as writing a blog, because there are things that I say in the book that I would never record in the public domain. I write whatever is on my mind. I write about what I see and what I eat. I write about what I enjoy and what frustrates me. I find that this helps me to reflect on my experiences in real time and to appreciate the tiny bits of beauty all around me. And as an additional bonus, it's always great to look back on those entries years later and see if and how my overall outlook has changed.
