Or, barring that, at the very least one might have a fully-fledged map of the country on the kitchen wall.

I don’t actually have a map as nice as the one I saw at the house party I went to last night, but it was really great to visualize the path I’m going to be taking in about a month down under!

Hell yes – Australia here I come! Leaving for about a month to see lots and lots of red dirt, and maybe a little (a lot) of the coastline. But I’m not done… this post ALSO marks the first true return I’ve done to this blog in over three years. In that time much has happened… and was promptly forgotten. Honestly, who remembers these things?

I’m very interested, once again, in keeping some sort of travel blog going while I’m there. The first time I tried this, while absolutely amazing fun, was a masochistic exercise in how much frustration with:

  • Slow internet cafés!
  • Expensive internet cafés!
  • Crappy french keyboards that make no sense in internet cafés!
  • Horrible blog software!
  • Terrible picture formatting!
  • Dismal blog site speed!

…I could take before killing my travelling partner just to vent.

Well, the plan this time is supposed to work better.. but the greater plans of greater men have fallen short before. It is an attempt to recreate something I’ve always loved to do when going on a trip – share it with everyone that I know!

We shall see :). And in the meantime, holy fucking shit! Australia!

We do pics.

This looks like a UPS ad.

Boom

Baby.

Ressurection

So the whole Ireland blog thing didn’t quite work out as well as I planned. Thing is, it’s damn hard to not only write the content, but deal with the happiness that is file uploading and security access ever-present in the hard-to-find internet cafés that are scattered in the towns during your trip. So I said fuck it, and went out drinking instead.

I’m trying out a new theme, because I think the old one is starting to look very dated, and I feel like a fresh start. Something I’m trying out here is called Orange something, which I nabbed from the wordpress site :). I’m hunting down and shooting the girlieness out of it as we speak… it may make an appearance here soon!

Or maybe I’ll just do what I always do and take the lazy way out! Therefore, nothing will change. Ahh.. its good to be back!

I also updated the WP backend – which, magically, now gives my site never-before-seen RSS powers. Eat it.
