"A boy from Jersey travels the world" realmercy's Profile

Jersey to North Carolina and then the World!

Yes I grew up in New Jersey, USA about 30 minutes from New York City. But at the age of 32 I moved to North Carolina and now I live on land that my Great Grandfather worked on as a slave. But as an old man he purchased some of that land, and so I raised my children here. Now as I get pass the age of 55, I decided to visit other people in distant lands and so my journey continues. Every time I land in a country far far away from my home I always think, what the hell am I doing here :) ...., so far away from friends and family, but soon I am making new friends. Well thats my short story.
