I want to share some things about traveling that I have learned over the course of the year.  I have also got some complements on my trip planning and want to share what I did, what I wish I did (and what I would do when I go back), and other general things to do.  I also might eventually go into how I plan trips and the steps that I take to determine what I want to do and see.

Also under this page you can find general tips and advice that I have for things like: picking a cell phone, finding somewhere to live, flying budget airlines, finding a backpacking backpack for travel, how to pack, using the train, purses, the things I wish I had originally brought with me, the things I am glad that I brought with me, etc, etc.
