My inspiration, idea, hope, and desire for this blog

Even if the only reason for this blog being created is primarily for the purpose of getting a good grade in one of my classes, I have decided to make an effort to get inspired and actually try. That being said, as I do not consider myself an exceptionally talented writer, I have decided to share a photo I have taken or been a part of at the beginning of each new post, and describe the story, the lesson learned, or even the thought that is associated with it. This way half of the post can be appreciated even if my words fail to grasp your attention.

To start things off I have shared a map of the world (if it can be described as a map) where various travel routes can be seen. This picture is a good way to get things off and running for a variety of reasons. First, this picture relates to my blog title. I am the 21st Century Explorer and I live to travel the world. Second, I would be considered by some as well traveled (although I myself believe I have a ways to go before this statement can describe me) as I have traveled to 36 countries in my lifetime. This is relevant to this blog as a majority of the posts will revolve around my travels. Third, the class that necessitates I start a blog is a class that plays a part in leading me to volunteering on the other side of the world for 8 months of my life. And finally, ┬áit’s a really cool picture so why shouldn’t I include it in this really cool blog?
