A Brief Introduction

Hello Internet,

This marks my second attempt at a blog. Hopefully this one will find more success in it's upkeep than my last. I am writing this because I love to travel, I enjoy food, and I like writing and pontificating about both.

In a week I am departing for Nicaragua, where I will spend the next five months or so volunteering with the Center for Development in Central America. To create some sort of writing based structure I am obligating myself to this blog. I pledge to update at least once a week, hopefully more if inspiration strikes.

"Go places and eat things" It's the Bruno family motto. My family goes through grocery stores the way other families view museums. I have been lucky enough to travel to Europe and Asia in the past, but have never ventured out of U.S borders while on my home continent. Nicaragua, and the world of Central America is a completely new culture for me. One of many that I live in relatively close proximity too, yet have never seen and know little about. Though I can buy books and research the country with the convenience of the Internet, it is a step into the relatively unknown. It is my desire to learn and experience a new culture, and capture what I've learned on the page so that I may share it with the rest of you.
