Diners and mustangs and snow… oh my!

October 3, 2009 Posted by the writer

Having lived overseas for seven years with no visit to the states during this period exceeding four weeks, I am excitedly curious about what the trip will bring. I remember the days when the Jerry Springer show was something I could accept and when I really didn’t feel that American culture was loud.

It will be fascinating to see what aspects of US culture pop out to me after I spend a fair bit of time there.DSCN0662

That said, I can list a few things I’ll miss about Australia and a few things I can’t wait to return to…

I’ll miss being really out of the loop, that whole ‘ignorance is bliss’ thing is totally true… I have no idea what celebrity is shagging who or what’s ‘hot’ on commercial radio. However…

I can’t WAIT to see my FAMILY and FRIENDS!! I’ve made some amazing mates down under, actually, I should rephrase that – I’ve reconnected with some past-life family that’s been hiding out in the mysterious land I discovered not too long ago. But getting back to my roots for a longer than a 28 day period will be unreal. How unreal? Not much longer til we find out!!
