So I thought this trip I would give blogging a shot. I am in no way a writer like Justin at all. I actually despise writing. But I thought it would be fun to upload the pictures from my camera and give my point of view of the trip. Please do not judge my grammar, I went to Celina High School and we colored signs to put on the lockers of football boys and practiced game day stuff during class. Grammar was the least of my worries then..

After you become aware of something, it seems to occur everywhere. After Monaj spoke of his love for the crooner popular for such songs as "I wanna be (your underwear)" and 18 going on 55, we could not escape the stylings of the Nepalese heartthrob. I could not help but picture him bringing down the house in Kathmandu to a crowd of weeping Nepalese with a heartfelt rendition of "(Everything I do) I do it for you."
And it happened, he performed in Kathmandu a few months ago.
As usual on a trip across the globe, there were characters during our hops from one destination to the next. On our flight to Amsterdam, we sat next to a Lithuanian chess master on scholarship at UTD. Apparently UTD is one of the few schools to hand out scholarships to chess players. He was returning home to Lithuania for the summer months. Kristin swears his name was Cod, but I would almost gamble a fortune that it was Todd. It is a point of debate between us. Among his more difficult adaptations to American life was the appropriate way to navigate through a Subway sandwich shop. He was amazed at the level of sandwich freedom - all of those toppings, for free.

Most of our guests left the Virgin Islands, but Kristin, myself, and Nathan Bellah remained. We explored the far west of the island. Fredericksted, St. Croix's westernmost city, was ghost town empty, but extremely interesting nonetheless. We ate the best deli sandwiches in the world (seriously) at Turtle's Deli and wandered the empty streets.

|The beach in front of our home for the last week - The Palms at Pelican Cove|
We came, we saw, we got married. St. Croix will always be a special place for the new Delaney family. After spending the last week with over seventy of our closest friends and family in the Virgin Islands, Kristin and I depart for another adventure. I will be posting many pictures and detailing our exploratory whims with short vignettes. Please stay tuned and check back frequently at goboogo.com. We arrive in Kathmandu on May 15. First things first, I will be sharing a few posts worth of pictures from St. Croix, wedding excluded. Those wedding photos will come much later.
