Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Didn´t come here for the photos because they don´t have meaning without the human story.  And what a story it is!  The most interesting part is your personal discovery and the fact that you let yourself flow and grow with the trip and the people.  I´m really glad to hear your experiences, your process and I do understand exactly when you say ´if that makes any sense´.

When the trip outside mirrors the trip inside, you are doing good work and will keep progressing.  I don´t envy the traveling as much as I admire your willingness to go through it knowing you will have tough moments and come out with the full set of feelings and memories. No need to beat yourself for not trying to go it alone in unknown territory:  A profound-living trip doesn´t have to be heroic.

Awesome!  Go, MillMan!  

Our knowledge has surpassed our wisdom. -Charu Saxena.

great travel blogging, millman!

i love how you consciously expose your mind to all this novelty, feeding it inputs that you know are having a lifetime effect on you and your perceptions of the world.

like nomad does so well too, you let us in on your personal dramas, but discretely, avoiding the 'all about me' syndrome, but reminding us constantly that it's a real living human being behind the words, as opposed to a wearying trudge through another succession of external impressions.

again like nomad, i think you could write a whole book of your exploits, and i hope you do! you guys set a high bar indeed.

lovely comment, metavision.
