My first post and my first blog. I’m psyched.
My name is Dan and I teach U.S. History at the middle school level. When I’m not at school I spend a great deal of time with my family and friends in South Eastern Connecticut. We cook, laugh, deal with dogs, and enjoy everything this part of the country has on offer. As a family we try and get out as much as possible and find ourselves on international and domestic trips several times throughout the year.
I want to share my experiences from the past and present through the eyes of someone that is anxious and at times impatient. I think after reading some of my entries you’ll see the sort of person I am, take it or leave it. I find travel to be the best medicine for my condition. I want other people to know it’s okay to be nervous about flying, it’s fine to be weary in a new city across the world, and not all the funky stuff you eat will make you ill.
I’m excited to share my stories and encourage people to take appropriate risks when venturing to new places. I’m also happy to share ways to get through those tough experiences when you’re ready to just pack up and leave. I’ve done that more than once!
My next post will be on a quick trip I took to Hong Kong last summer. I’ll have airline tips, restaurant recommendations and what we did to keep busy for our 4 days there.
