In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

I decided to start this blog as a way to stay in touch with my friends and family as my travels tend to take me all over the world. I named it "Ibn Blauvelt" in respect to the famous Moroccan sojourner, Ibn Battuta ("Ibn" means "son of"), who traveled approximately 75,000 miles over 30 years, long before the time of steam engines and trains. He's a role model of mine, as I find in traveling and getting to know other people and cultures you get to know yourself better and your purpose in life.

Every few days I will try to add a post and pictures from a trip or facet of my journey here, and maybe I can even convince my sister Heather to do the same as she travels off to Argentina this fall. Please share your comments and questions through posts!
