Nothing backpacking-wise today was so spectacular that it can’t wait for tomorrow’s post, which I can tell you already is going to be a long one. Instead, 27 hours after being Freshly Pressed, I’m stunned and ecstatic that Round Two is kicking Round One’s tail. 3,600 hits, the post has been read over 2,100 times, and… Hey 50 new subscribed friends! The backpacking trip is just about over. I hope people go back and catch up on some of the fun.
More important than any of the statistics, however, are the comments. What has been written, both on the Freshly Pressed post and so many others in the past day, has been kind, flattering, surprising and exciting. Someone mentioned how much fun is to be had in my “line of work.”
Here’s hoping I can make this my job in 2012.
Today seems like a good day to celebrate the beauty of life and people, so below is the complete collection of photos of love, wonder, solitude and togetherness I’ve gotten to witness over the last four months. It may look like a lot, but nothing new- it all was somewhere in past posts before.
I took my 58th and last train ride of the trip today. I’m checked into my 43rd hostel/hotel/bedroom. One more day, and I fly home on Thursday.
With a heart full of that word on my shirt, goodnight friends.
