Earlier this year I found myself in Monteverde, Costa Rica. I was putting together a Facebook status – not your average Facebook status, but one of those monumental ones that scream, ‘look at me’ – and I thought about this blog.
You see, the Facebook status was commemorating the fact that ten years previously, I had hopped on a plane to Tokyo to begin a mammoth backpacking trip that would more or less change my life. It meant that my little blog, Olympic Wanderings, was also ten years old.
Except that I hadn’t posted a thing for about two years.
I thought about this for about five seconds before pressing publish and focusing my attention on more pressing matters like volcanoes, toucans and zip lining.
