Travel Tales: My blog is Traveling Without Me!

I have always assumed that my Travel Tales would be about my travels to various places around the world. Now it seems like my blog has taken on a life of it's own. It is traveling all over the world without me!

Blogger has a feature that allows me to track where my audience is - where people are when they read my blog posts. I always assumed that my readers would be from the US and Mexico. After all, that's who I have in mind when I write. But, boy, was I wrong! Who knew when I started this blog six months ago that I would have an amazing international audience in such a short time?

Here's the list (in alphabetical order) so far:
  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • Czech Republic
  • Ecuador
  • France
  • Germany
  • Guatemala
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Lithuania
  • Malaysia
  • Mexico
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Russia
  • South Africa
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • Taiwan
  • Ukraine
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

I've only been to nine of those countries, plus a few others, so my blog has officially traveled more than I have. And it is possible that there have been readers from other countries. If I don't check every week, I might miss them.

I love to travel. But, just as much, I love learning about cultures other than my own. My college degree is in Multi-Ethnic Studies. I loved every minute of my classes and continue to learn more on my own.

What I would really love is to hear from my readers. Are you natives of those countries? Or are you Americans who happen to read my blog while visiting abroad? Or maybe you are expats like I am.

Whatever your answer, please use the comment feature here to tell me a bit about yourself and how you found my blog.

And, as always, thank you so much for taking the time to read what I write.
