Roam around the world

I don't know if I am actually still sick, or if I just hit the afternoon blahs 
either way I skipped the gym after work.

maybe I'll feel up to it and get a workout in before the night is over. 
I'm worried about skipping too many workouts because I have to train for the 1/2 marathon. 
that last 5 miles I ran nearly killed me
I still have so far to go.

Let's talk about travel.

I found THIS great blog on a group of people who are living abroad teaching English
I've always thought that I wanted to do something like this
being thrown into another culture like that
after reading some of these entries
it just seems dangerous!
HERE - someone was almost hauled to jail for not having his papers
HERE- someone's camera was stolen
HERE- is a list of "Traveling Tips" that include things like:
1. Carry two wallets- one to keep and one to give a mugger
2. Always walk with your hand in your pocket so it looks like you are carrying mace or better yet, carry mace

all of these blogs makes me think...
maybe i'll just see what my country has to offer first.

Don't get me wrong- I still want to travel abroad.
but with money
on tours
with other tourists
in nice cities
with nice people

I hate to leave this blog without a picture
so enjoy!
