I have promised myself that once I’m on the road I will refrain from checking Facebook every 20-30 minutes, which I’ll admit is very close to my current reality. I understand the concepts of living in the moment, being spontaneous, and breaking free from an electronic tether.
Having said that, I also know that someday I may want to relive this trip and a photo album won’t tell the whole story. While the other seniors at the home are playing shuffleboard and Canasta, I’ll be the one with the iPad, reliving what I was seeing, feeling and experiencing on what was undoubtedly a life changing journey.
With that in mind, I have decided to document the trip on this public blog. If I’m the only one who ever reads it, so be it. If others check in regularly and can somehow live vicariously through me, then that’s a bonus. Welcome aboard.
