Brain Drain - Adventure Some - CycleBlaze

Brain Drain

I've done this before, just set out on my bike with no real purpose other than clearing my head and seeing what the world has in store.  But this time it's a little different.

My brain is about to explode from working practically non-stop for the last 10 months.  If I don't clear out all the work related chaff I might go insane.  Because of my summer schedule I can't go far.  But interestingly, instead of being excited about flying to exotic countries I am still happy to be riding anywhere, even if it is closer to home.

Sure, you won't hear about the crazy habits and customs of people around the world--such as Italians not pre-slicing their pizza before serving it to unsuspecting Americans, or the unpleasant business of "squatters" where toilets belong.  Still, Americans do some crazy things too.  We all know that.  So there WILL be stories, there just will be.

In the mean time, I am hoping to empty my head.
