About Dave Terry's Travel Journal

About the only thing better than traveling and learning about other cultures is writing and taking pictures of them.

I do it because it helps me remember the places, the people, and the experience. Later I can relive the moment, laugh at the happy times, or exaggerate the turmoil of travel.

But writing about travel and taking photographs also gives other people a chance to experience the events. They may not have the circumstances to experience the places I've been or they may want to be better prepared for what awaits them should they go.

My focus lately has been China. In 2006 we spent three weeks there. In 2008 we spent a month there. In 2010 we stayed two months and instead of traveling around the country, we stayed in one place. We want to get the feel of actually living in the country.

Our hope is to speak Chinese with the people there AND be understood. It's a high expectation.

Hope you enjoy the treks as much as I do.

    The good thing (with your beer) over there is that you don't have to drive yourself home after drunk or to ask your kids, my case, to give you a ride.

    Thanks for the advice. I don't get drunk as I like to know when I have a good time.

    Hi Dave, saw your post on the easy journaling forum and came by to take a look at your site. It clicking around I'm loving your pictures and look forward to checking out more, looks like you have been at this a while. (Ill skip the intro as I wrote one on the forum)

    Anyway, looking forward to checking out your Asia travels. It has been so fun for me to look back at my Journal from Australia while working on Falling Down Under (time travel journal blog) I was struck by my comments on Asian culture while getting to know my fellow students! And wanting to explore Asian cultures for the first time.
