On November 9th, Michael and I headed for Houston's Intergalactic Airport. The plan was 3 countries in 3 weeks. The goals: find some more stuff for the shop, experience different cultures and see more of the world, and try not to get sick. Missions accomplished. And then some...
We tried to document every moment of this trip for 2 reasons - first, we have to be really specific when we place orders for the shop for ship salvage and other items we find along the way because if we're not, we'll end up getting sent a 40' shipping container full of widgets. Don't know what a widget is? Neither do we - that's why we have to be specific - sizes, pictures, drawings are a must - and sometimes we still get random crap in the shipment. And second, my brain just isn't wired the same way any more - if I don't write stuff down or take a picture, chances are it won't be there when I go looking for it a few days later. When we're sitting around in 50 years with nothing to do, I'd like to be able to look back and say "remember when we did that?". So I must document.
And I'd like to invite anyone who has nothing better to do to relive it with me here as we chronicle our journey around the world - literally. And you won't even need to apply for the visas!
