Many of my female friends have told me...come to think of it all my male friends as well, that I have the ugliest back and shoulder hair on the planet. I never gave it much thought. Yeah, it's unsightly, but I can't reach my back and I didn't want to go through the pain and cost of having it done. Fast forward to yesterday.
The IntelleXual on the Road is in the Philippines! David and Steve are on the journey of a lifetime as David visits his family in the Philippines for the first time in 30 years and Steve takes his first ever trip outside of the confines of the continental US. In this episode the boys try a bunch of Filipino foods they wouldn't have tried at home!
So far 2014 has become the year of firsts for me. First time getting a passport. First time traveling outside the country. First time going through customs, the first time setting foot on foreign soil, first time getting a mani-pedi, (clear polish if you were going to ask) And, first time eating balut.
David and Steve are truly global podcasters now. Their premiere episode of The IntelleXual On The Road has them discussing flying on the Hello Kitty plane, their first day in the Philippines and Steve's adventuresome spirit leading him to downing a balut. It's a very yummy podcast from the other side of the Pacific!
In my 48 years I have traveled to different parts of the United States. Most recently, to Florida for a wedding of two friends from high school. A first for me. I had never been to Florida, but I have never left the country nor have I ever needed to get a passport. Another first.
