A long time in the making…

So here we are, it’s September 2010 and I haven’t written anything for the general public since the week I came to Alaska in 2008. It’s kinda hard to think back on everything and put it into a paragraph, so I won’t. I’m still working on this website, I had been writing a little bit every few weeks or so before, however I was worried it might dissapear so I moved the blog to this website from it’s original location (yup, myspace, who would of thought that would have gone away so quickly?) and I’m just about done putting up pictures from my Asian adventures a few years ago. This website will eventually be my forum for showing off whatever it is I want, cause it’s mine, so stay tuned for updates, new pictures, and all kinds of other exciting stuff.

Here we go again…..

Ummmmmmm……So it’s been about 5 weeks now since I’ve been back in Milwaukee, it’s been lots of fun, sometimes. I got a motorcycle, and already sold it, got a laptop and a sweet new camera, got lots of thermal underwear, and now it’s time to use it. I’m off on Friday afternoon, I’m moving to Alaska. I got a job as a reporter for a public radio station in Dillingham, which is on the south west coast, at the head of Bristol Bay on the Bering Sea. I’m not sure how long I’ll be there for, but I’m assuming at least a year or two. yeah. So…..There may or may not be a little gathering on Thursday night, downtown Milwaukee style for those who have some free time on a thursday night. and if anyone decides to come up to Alaska they are more than welcome to sleep on my couch (which I hope to have, I’m not sure where I’m going to live yet). I guess that’s all the news I have for now. Talk later from the north.

I´m sitting in a railway station, got a ticket for a destination…..

And here it is, the final news update for Adam’s world adventures 2003 – 2008….. After having my fun in the sun in La Paz, Bolivia, yet again I’ve made my way to Peru. I’m in Cusco now just hanging out and buying up lots of nice things to maybe sell and support myself with for a day or two when I get back. Which means, yes, I’m coming back to the US. I’ll be flying out of Lima on the 2nd to Detroit and after a lovely greyhound bus trip I’ll be in Milwaukee on the 4th. I got nothing planned until June, but I also have no car to get anywhere. So I guess maybe it’s not all that exciting, but the statistics are something like this: 5.5 years (since graduation), 29 countries, 5 continents, bits and pieces of many languages, a few flights, lots of bus trips, a few donkey rides, uncountable miles of walking, hundreds of friends, good food, strange music, kareoke every once in a while, and lots of other fun stuff. If anyone wants to call me I’ll be around my parents house for at least a day or two when I get back the number is (414) 351-3059. I haven’t decided if i’m gonna become all tech and get me a mobile phone but you can try just calling people who know me, I might be with them (I also don’t have their numbers), otherwise email works. yeah, so I guess that’s all, see you in a few

How does it feel, to be on your own, like a rolling stone….

And so here it is again in my apparantly irregular intervals, an update. Last update was sometime in November or something so I guess I should say happy new years to those of you who I haven’t talked to this year, and for those that I have….Hi. So It’s been lots of fun and craziness getting through Bolivia without having a visa, and driving through hellish roads, then Paraguay without a border and not so hellish, but instead very straight and orderly roads. Down to Argentina and a fun new years party on the beach and back up to Buenos Aires to meet the one known as Kate, Hi Kate. With Kate’s wonderful accompaniment (I’m not sure how to spell that one) we bounced around between north and south, east and west (on some of the longest bus rides in existence) checking out all the little bits and pieces of Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay.They are all nice, I highly reccomend them all. So it comes at a sad time then that in one weekend Kate left me for Australia (after a wonderfully extended month) and also my homies from Muchoviaje left me for Africa (and they didn’t even invite me to go with…). Again I find myself bouncing around trying to figure out what to do next, and also waiting for a bus (I still got a few hours), I’m on my way now back to Bolivia (Got my $100 visa, I’m set). If things go to plan, which they often don’t, I’ll be at the border in a few days and take a nice train ride to La Paz where I have some shopping to do, after a few weeks there I’m planning on heading back into Peru and making my way (much quicker this time) to Lima. I will probably be flying out of Lima, and to where you may or may not be asking yourself? I wish I knew. I`m spending the next few weeks trying to figure out where to go next. And everyday, depending on mood, I change my mind about 10 times per hour. It seems as though some time in Europe could be fun but then again there might be some things I should take care of in the EU (Estados Unidos = USA), and then again I still have that calling in my ears for Africa (I hear you Joyce). So the comments and suggestions box is now officially in service to anyone who cares to send me a message and I will hopefully know where I’ll be going by the end of March. See you soon, or not, but maybe
