The journey begins......

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain

I couldn't agree more with mark twain. So this summer one of my goals was to get a passport and about two months ago it was accomplished. You have no idea how stoked I was to get it in the mail that day. This just opened the world to me. So many places to see. So many cultures to learn and experience. So much to learn from other people. So many thoughts ran through my head of all the places I have talked about going and seeing so many places my good friends live throughout the world. Since I have delve into the world of surfing, it has opened my eyes to new places i wouldn't have thought of going too. Whenever I travel its such an interesting experience for me. I learn so much and just try to soak it all in. my travels thus far have been small but have taught me much. A few places im dying to see: Brazil, Indonesia, India, Egypt, Costa Rica, Panama and many others. Let me know your TOP THREE PLACES TO TRAVEL OR HAVE TRAVELED.

"Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living." –- Miriam Beard

Oh man I am just dying to travel to Egypt too! As soon as I graduate, we are definitely going to explore a bit. We really want to go to Thailand next summer! Other than that I really want to go to Egypt, Rome, and New Zealand.

HI Daniel.

I have really enjoyed reading your blog, I know you don't want to grow older, but you really have grown up. I am impressed with your out look and views on life. I still remember how you and your guys friends showed up to my house with flowers on 16th birthday welcoming me to the world of dating. It was so sweet. Too bad we never really hung out until right before my mission. Those were some fun times, but I think that said alot about the kind of person you are, very kind, friendly and thoughtful. I hope you get to geo visit all the places you want too with your new passport. Stamp up those pages!
