One would think that after living abroad for two years and then traveling through SE Asia for 5 months, going home would be a much awaited experience. I must admit I was ecstatic to not be living out of a backpack, have a permanent bed to rest my head on and not have to rely on public transportation, but the actual prospect of being home for a few months scared me. Thankfully I knew that this return home was not a permanent one, as much as friends and family suggested I stay for a while I knew that I'd soon be on the road again.
My brother decided to lessen the blow of re-entering the United States with a visit to Estabrook beer garden, a great addition to the lovely city of Milwaukee, it even made a top 10 list. On the way there we made a stop for snacks: wraps, HUMMUS and veggies, yeah those were my requests, it's amazing some of the simple things I missed after years in Asia. So the food was good and even better we got large craft beers (again something that's missing in Asia), the first day back was not.too.shabby.
