Welcome to Jahaungeer: a retelling of memories from travel.
This blog is the answer to an itch I've felt to return to the long-form trip report, a format I once enjoyed writing to recount experiences. Too long for Facebook and too specific for review-sites, I’ve been unable to find the right platform to share these stories on. My hope is that in collecting them here, my family and friends will have access to the moments I hold dearly and in a format that lends itself to the story of the experiences.
The purpose? To simply, clearly, and in some detail share stories from travel experiences. That is it. I do not intend to review specific amenities; I don’t intend to endorse one experience over another; I do not believe I am more-or-less qualified to speak with authority on these topics. As you will find in my self-admitted mistakes, I am not an expert at travel, or writing, or photography and I do not intend to suggest so by creating a blog featuring all three.
All I intend to portray are stories from my travels. This blog is an opportunity for me to pause from my day-to-day living and take a moment to reflect on the experiences most unique in my life. I enjoy studying these photos of moments where I was the most humored, the most tired, the most nervous, and the most overjoyed—photos where I was in the best of company— and jot down what I can remember. It is through this way that I hope to enjoy these moments for years to come.
