Pre-Departure

Heading out

On August 31st I set out for Italy, my first stop on an eight-month (or more) journey care of a unique fellowship from the University of Washington. Thus far I know I will be visiting Syria and Lebanon in the Middle East (thru November) and Mozambique and South Africa in southern Africa (thru February), after that who knows. I'm focusing on countries where I speak or am learning the language (Portuguese, Arabic, Spanish, and English). I'll be taking a my bicycle to get to know the places I visit as only you can on two wheels. You can subscribe to this blog to follow my journey and get updates via email. I'd love to hear from you on this page or by email.
