September 27th, 2004 - I got the photos...been totally lazy but will be working on them in the next few weeks. Sorry, been a busy bee!
August 26th, 2004 - Hello everyone! So I am back home with some regret. I almost forget what's it's like since it's been ages...nobody told me about the letdown from the high of traveling! I've been feeling out of sorts and totally disoriented the last couple days.
I know there were times when my feet hurt and I experienced some uncomfortable moments, and when I longed for my own bed but that feeling didn't last too long. I was caught up in the moment and the new sights and smells to focus long on those unimportant things. And at night, when it was time for bed, I'd be so tired that I really didn't have time for reflection or to think of all those silly things that usually bother me when I'm home. It was oddly peaceful.
It still hasn't all sunk in yet. Alot of people have asked me how my trip was, and I've only been able to focus on generalities really. It wasn't like I went anywhere really exotic or unique anyway (although it was wonderful nevertheless)...and so with that...work on this VT site for this trip will be a little while as I've got to gather my thoughts and organize the millions (literally) of photos I took and make some sense of it. The curse/beauty of a digital camera...being able to snap away like a madwoman without realizing that perhaps what you're taking photos of is utter crap. =)
I've always enjoyed taking photos but finding out about this VT community from my brother made me actively take photos of where we ate and places we visited. THANKS VT!
