I’m home from Europe, WDSTL

I returned this past week from more than a month of backpacking Europe with college buddy Sean Blanda. While there, he and I travel blogged and podcasted at WeDontSpeaktheLanguage.com.

This week I am going to roll out some highlights and lessons learned, though Sean beat me to the latter.

One of those lessons, I’m afraid, will involve being hacked, as we were just that. (Check WDSTL, we may not have corrected by the time you read this).

Our stops while backpacking

But better to happen now that we’ve returned and have better tools at our disposal. One of those tools being time.

My return means – you will be ecstatic to learn – a return to regular posting here and elsewhere, though, I am happy to say, I managed to post at least three times a week here for the extent of my time abroad, in addition to my work with WDSTL and, you know, actually sight-seeing.

I also am going to announce my global job hunt… that I am actually just limiting to Philadelphia. Explanation and expansion on that. I also want to reintroduce a split between this site and a more personal one.

Oh, so much excitement to come.

Mostly I am glad to be back in the beautiful United States of America. God bless America, and good luck President-elect Obama.
