Week Zero

A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints – Wilfred Peterson

2011 will be the year of travel, adventure, change, renewal of life, and many other things.  Each week I will have taken steps toward change, growth, simplification, and/or renewal.

The plan is to post every week a summary of the previous week which will begin with a fitting quote. I may also have posts throughout the week to document experiences I have.

I almost did everything on my list last year, but I fell short a few things. This year I am going to make a short list of twenty one things I want to accomplish and hope to cover them all! These will all be things that relate to my goals of travel, adventure, change, and renewal of life.
