Leaving China!

So as you can tell by my post's title, I am leaving this country and am heading towards the second most populous country in the world: INDIA! I'll be in the northern part for a few weeks and I hope to get a feel of what the culture and people are like in that short time period. I'm taking a train south, so I won't arrive for a few days (China is HUGE!) but I think it will be worth it to see all the natural beauty (as long as we don't pass through any of industrial China). I'm not sure if I will have an internet connection on the train so if you don't hear from me, I probably don't. So, I bid you adou! Till next time!

Hello Everyone! It's ME!

So, if you're reading this, you're probably family or friends, so you already know about me going around the world in 103 days. I was in Beijing at a tea shop, talking with a newly-made friend when he told me I should make a blog logging my travel. Well, I took his advice to heart and here I am. I'm currently in the Xinjiang Province in the northwestern part of the country (China). The only time I can really blog is when I'm in a coffee shop (which I am in right now) so my blog posts might be few and far between. But I wanted to keep my family and friends updated with the story of my travels (and also to keep my wife, Susanne, from worrying about me). But nevertheless, I hope you will be riveted as I regale the tales of my voyage. So, till next time!
