Friends, if you are looking for a good travel blog to follow, might I suggest this one by poet Eric Thomas Norris? He’s abandoned the US for a year-long sojourn across Europe and Asia, and right now he’s in Germany celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall. Eric is wry, witty, and exceedingly well-read. I made his acquaintance a few years ago when he accepted my poem, “Torn”, for his online journal Kin. I got to meet him in person this past winter in New York, where he lived until recently. This year, I’ll be living vicariously through Eric’s eyes as he couch surfs his way across the globe. You can, too. –Kelly
I am an American writer.
I am living out of my backpack for the next year as I circumnavigate the globe. This blog will tell the story of that journey. I have no particular destination in mind. I have no idea what kind of joys and hardships I will encounter. But the wind seems fair, and you are there, and my memory is packed with pistols, poems and puns, in case I am captured by pirates.
I do not travel alone. (From the blog at www.ericthomasnorris.com)
