As this is a new blog, I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I'm Anton, and I'm in my mid-20s. I do web development for a living, as a consultant. My family immigrated to the United States in the early 2000's, and I have been living on Long Island even since. Until May of 2016, I have not traveled much, with the exception of two airplane trips to Toronto and one bus trip to Boston, Massachusetts. This changed in May 2016 when I finally went after my long time dream. I flew to Arizona with only one week of preparation to visit Sedona and the Grand Canyon, and to spend time with a friend. I spent a week there, and I had the best time of my life. I already wrote a blog post that gives more details about that trip. I also caught a travel fever, and am now going to travel a lot more. In fact, I'm planning an open ended road trip across the states starting July 2016. It's going to be my first road trip, and my primary objectives are to see other places, learn about people, and eventually find a new and better place to live. I will have a lot to write about as I move forward with this. I started the blog so that I can document my adventures and share photos. So welcome, and I hope you enjoy the things I post.
