This is Definitely Not African Weather…

It has been almost one month since my last blog post, and as you can see by the above picture,
I am not in Tropical-Sub-Saharan Africa.  After six months away from my family and friends, I decided to take a trip to Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan to visit my mother and two brothers and their families.  The day I departed Malabo, Equatorial Guinea in mid-March it was sunny and temperatures were in the low 90s… when I arrived at the Cincinnati Airport almost 37 hours later, it was 40 degrees and overcast.  Talk about a shock to the body… I forgot that it takes quite a bit of time for the body to acclimatize and I was pretty cold for the first week.  During the second day of my visit to my mother’s home in North-East Ohio, we got about 5 inches of snow!

Yikes, this was not what I was expecting!

I am planning some great adventures in the near future, but first I need to spend some more time with my Family and Friends!

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.
