The A.U.’s Adventures blog started out as a means to provide my family and friends with photos and quick updates of my December 2012-January 2013 trip to Sri Lanka. Why a blog? I have an established professional blog in the hearing industry with the uber-creative name “A.U. Bankaitis’ Blog“. I started the blog in 2010 to provide quick information about products and industry news to my Audiology colleagues. Based on that experience, it made perfect sense to start a personal blog to electronically journal my adventures not only for my own personal record, but to make it accessible to my friends and family.
From this small intention blossomed the idea to expand the personal “Sri Lanka” blog to a grander scale whereby I could journal any and all exciting, challenging, and/or fun adventures in the New Year. As simple (or lame?) as it sounds, my goal for 2013 was to plan for and have more fun! I figured a blog would be an easy and efficient means of not only documenting my adventures, but the perfect vehicle to keep my 2013 resolution alive and honest. After all, if I am too busy working or too busy leading a boring life, there won’t be much to blog about, would there? As penned by Stephen King’s character Jack Torrence, “All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy“.
To read about my adventures, go to A.U.’s Adventures and use the menu bar in the left-hand margin to select specific adventure categories to read up including my Sri-Lanka Adventure, my Oscar-Adventure, and my Whole30 Adventure.
