Introducing myself and my journal
Since December 2006, I have been a nomadic volunteer: no home, no car. Traveling by bicycle or public transportation and the occasional borrowed car, doing volunteer work. I focus on the poorest of the poor in the world, and the people in my life at the moment. I have kept a blog of my travels and volunteer work, www.diane-emerson.blogspot.com, and have recently created a website to share information on my favorite charities and inspirational quotes I have collected in my travels.
I will be volunteering in Kashmir for 3 months in 2009, so joined this forum because of what I have read here.
