A picture is worth a thousand words, so a picture every day for a year is worth three hundred and sixty-five thousand words, right?

I’ve been wondering why I haven’t written more during my travels. I mean, that was one of my “plans” before I left my home and everything else behind, with not much more than a one-way ticket.

And as I delve into my very first NaNoWriMo, it occurs to me that I have, in-fact, become very rusty when it comes to writing. But it’s not like I haven’t been documenting my travels – I have. But instead of publishing my thoughts and photos on my own blog, I have been feeding them to the Facebook advertising machine.

So, from here on in, I will attempt to post, at minimum, a picture every day. Occasionally it will be accompanied by my thoughts, but I want to keep the task as minimal as possible, so that I stick to it. Like this guy, who ran one mile and drank one beer every day – for three years! And if Seth Godin can dish out amazing pearls of wisdom every day then surely I can at least post a picture.

The main criterion is that the photo itself must tell some sort of a story. I know this is a very very vague filter, but I don’t want to restrict it too much, because I know that the restrictions will then become an excuse not to post.

So without further ado, here’s my first picture.
