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.
Home sweet home!
