So Many Unposted Adventures

First off, I am sorry, but I have no idea if "unposted" is even a word.  If the red underlines that just appeared are any indication, then I am going to guess that I am correct in thinking that it is not a word at all.  Oh well, perhaps I just added a new word to the English language.  Good for me.
Anyways, it has really been two years since I posted anything of substance, and yes, you can probably read a lot into that.  Call it what you will, but I am going to do my best to get back into writing.  I have been told by a few people that I ought to keep writing so I can have better stories to tell when I am senile, so perhaps I should just put them down on here.  A list of tall-tales if you will.
The last two years have been crazy as far as adventures go.  Hiking in the Himalayas, motorcycling in Vietnam, Morocco, dozens of countries all over Europe, and the continual adventure of living in China. 
My goal is to slowly catch up during the next few months and try to redevelop my love of writing.  I think that it all became too much to try and write things down.  I still saved photos, but I found myself dreading having to sit and write.  I guess I reverted back to middle school when writing was more of a chore than something I enjoyed.  No offense to any teacher reading this, but I am sure you understand as well.
That being said it does feel quite good to hear the sound of the keyboard and see something appear on screen again - even though it is mostly just verbal diarrhea.
I am going to try and go through and do all the adventures that we have had recently in some form of chronological order. 
1. Vietnam
2. Nepal
3. Korea
4. Netherlands
5. Spain
6. France
7. Andorra
8. Morocco
9. Portugal
10. Qatar
11. Germany
12. Luxemborg
13. Poland
14. Estonia
15. Latvia
16. Finland
17. Sweden
18. More on France
Seems like I have quite a lot of work to catch up on - which is perhaps why I stopped in the first place.  Who knows, maybe this time it will stick?
