Welcome to my first blog, not entirely sure what one does or writes about in a blog? Is it ones thoughts, ideas or just ramblings on random subjects? Or a combination of all of the above and then some? I wasn't sure so I looked it up, using the one resource everyone uses for their information, Google! I found a Wikipedia page that best described a blog, interestingly blog stands for a shortening of the two words web log - 'blog'. Yeah, I guess its not that interesting, anyways in summary a blog is - "Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries; others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important contribution to the popularity of many blogs."
So in essence pretty much anything, which is something I intend to do, I would like to use this blog to write about my thoughts, ideas, comments, suggestions gripes, loves, hates - essentially whatever is on my mind at the time. While at the same time documenting my travels and adventures with my partner Tania. This I see lends me the opportunity to air my thoughts, while not getting too personal, allowing everyone a glimpse into my mind, while yet finally being true to myself and talking about and discussing my true passions and desires.
Finally allowing myself to be true to myself, and talk on and discuss those ideas that interest me, some that I have been perhaps fearful of expressing because of others opinions on the matter. But shouldn't I be allowed to talk about and discuss any issue or subject that interests me? Freedom of speech and all that. Of course, so no more fear of others opinions or thoughts about what I'm passionate about. And this blogs affords me the opportunity to do so, read if you will and I hope you find it interesting enough to want to comment and discuss.
As I have always said, I am an open minded skeptic I am willing to and open to listen to and hear out any idea or thought, but that doesn't mean I will simply accept it as my own truth. As I expect from anyone reading my own ideas and thoughts on certain issues. Lets talk, and read and learn more about ourselves and the world within which we live and get closer to a universal understanding that hopefully resonates as truth for us, and if your ideas are different to mine then great. It's our differences that make us awesome, and ensure we progress so lets embrace change and differences and grow together on this journey or self discovery.
I hope you will join me on my journey, and perhaps we can learn something together.
My name is Yuri, and I am just a regular Joe who loves travel and adventure. I am lucky enough to do it with the woman of my dreams Tania. I love weird and wonderful things, which will always be present in any of my writings or blog posts.
