Where should I go?
Aug 12, 2001

These older journal entries were hastily typed in at local cybercafes where I was paying by the minute.  Please excuse grammar mistakes or typos. 

Let's make this trip interactive. 

I'm looking for some ideas. 

Where should I go? 

Thom tells me this morning that I should go to Georgia. 

"I don't know anyone who has been there, but apparently it has great food and the highest per-capita wine consumption in the World."  When he mentions the word "wine", I realize that he's not talking about the state. 

I might just do it.  I'd just have to take the a right turn instead of left when I hit Turkey and then head north into Georgia.  Hang out and try the local food and drink.  Then loop back around the Black Sea through the Ukraine on my way to Western Europe. 

Let me know what you think....  where do you want me to go? 

What should I do? 

I need some new hobbies.  I've done a fair amount of traveling, but this trip is very different.  Time is no longer a limiting factor.  There is no pressure to rush around and see as possible before the trip is over.  I'm going to find some cheap places that I like and hang out for quite a while. 

The problem is that even on the most beautiful beach you need to find something to do to yourself entertained.  I have a couple of books, but they are going to go very quickly.  Here are my first two ideas for new hobbies, but I'm definitely looking for others: 

1) Whittling (a knife and a tree and you can keep yourself busy for years)
2) Read 20 pages of Finnegans wake (could be a good way to spend a drunk month on a beach)

What are your ideas ....  for my new hobby?
