Backpack simplicity

I’ve started and stopped umpteen posts since I last hit publish, wondering what will be freshest on my mind once I finally arrived in the Land of Somewhat Reliable Internet (aka, outside of mainland China).

I have thoughts, lots of them. We collectively also have a bajillion photos and video clips, the latter of which will hopefully be made in to a watchable video. 9-year-old Tate is also soon drafting a post on the trip, thus far, from a kid’s perspective. More travel content is in the works, in other words.

In the meantime, however, some of my thoughts about China will have to wait a wee bit more—I’ve posted today on the flagship blog, scratched out a few paragraphs regarding my thoughts on what it’s been like to live out of a backpack for three weeks so far… the ultimate in simple living, in several ways.

If you’re a fellow nomadic traveler, I’d love to hear your thoughts over there as well. Or if you’re simply on a journey of another sort, well, you’re welcome to chime in, too. Always grateful for you all.
