When I was in Washington D.C. in the fall, I was sitting at an Irish pub, talking to a man that I’d met that day at the conference we were both attending. Somehow the topic of travel came up, and I told him that I was participating in an exchange trip to Asia in the spring. He suggested that I blog about the training for the trip and the trip itself. That’s where I got the idea to start a new blog.
The name of the blog came from trying to come up with a new twitter handle. I was trying to be witty and come up with a name, and thought I should try to make something with my name, Angela, in it. I used an online name generator, and change lands was one of the suggestions. (chANGELAnds) So, it seemed to work for a travel blog as well.
After I started this blog, I was also given the task of doing a group blog for our exchange team. So feel free to check that one out as well. You can find it at fourculturesoneheart.wordpress.com.
