An Afternoon in Lexington, Kentucky

This Fall, temps in central Kentucky have been pretty warm.  So a few days ago I took advantage of a beautiful afternoon and took a long walk around downtown Lexington, Kentucky.  Lexington is a nice medium-sized city with an urban college campus (University of Kentucky).  The downtown area is safe and easy to navigate.  There are numerous cafes and restaurants, many catering to a student’s budget.  I like to just wander, that’s probably why I like Amsterdam (and other European Cities) so much… you can wander for hours.  If you don’t know Lexington, I recommend at least a few hour visit! 

Above is the Lexington Carnegie Center for Literacy.  Once the Lexington Public Library now serves the community in another capacity.  Behind the Center is a beautiful tree-lined park.

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
