GO Vagabonding!

I will be flying to nyc the night of 2/20. Then 3/6, I will embark on a 6-8 month road trip with my Canadian friend, Greg. Honey will stay with my parents during that time. That's one of the hardest decisions that I have made. We going to Colorado for a few weeks and hope to meet up with Aya and Steve (from Japan). Steve and Greg plan to climb a mtg. Then we most likely will check out UT, WY, and MT.

We hope to be in Alaska by July for a month. Then head down through parts of Canada, including Banff.  Also hit up WA, OR, CA. Lots of fun, nature, camping, hiking, and national parks. We also might try woofing (work on a farm).

After the trip, not sure what's next. I love Portland but tired of the wet darkness. Been thinking about Colorado and Hawaii as next settlements, but who knows; I may want to keep on vagabonding. I am interested in SE Asia for at least 4 months and would love to live in Costa Rica for 3 months to work in ecotourism. 

Peace Corps is also another viable option. I'm not entirely sure about it b/c I want to focus on environmental work and PC can't guarantee that. Plus there's so much I want to see and do.

I have enjoyed my life in PDX for the past 4.5 years and I'm very thankful for the awesome friends I have made here. I have grown in many ways and I owe that to PDX!

More detail updates as they happen coming soon!
