Towards new adventures

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

— Robert Frost, part of The Road Not Taken

In August 2005 I made a decision to travel. The trip will begin in June 2006. I have traveled before, I've even lived abroad, but this time will be different. I won't have any obligations to work or study, nor a permanent address. The tour will start in Eastern Europe and continue in Asia, and perhaps include other continents too. Details are still open, but it doesn't matter — I'll have time to figure them out on the road.

At least in the beginning, I'll travel by bicycle. If at some point I feel I've had enough of cycling, then I'll switch to more traditional backpacking. I initially plan to travel for about one year, but I don't want to commit to any specific time or route too much in advance. I have more detailed plans for the first month or two, more about that later.

This blog will be used to post my travel news and other random thoughts.
