Post #1

So today we decided to start the blog for our trip. Unfortunately, we soon ran into problems as one of the very first things you are required to do when starting a new blog is to come up with a name and URL. After some rather intense deliberation we settled on The Four Bohemians for several very good reasons:
1. We are Bohemian. Deep down inside and way back on my mother's side there is a seed of Bohemian in each one of us. Yes... we are Bohemian.
2. Dictionary.com provides many definitions of Bohemian, one of them being "gypsy." This fits well for the trip on which we are about to set out: 36 days, 10 countries, lots of miles, small backpacks, no money, and uh... four of us.
3. Another definition for Bohemian was "a person, as an artist or writer, who lives and acts free of regard for conventional rules and practices" and that just made us feel good.

So... here we are, The Four Bohemians, about to set out on yet another crazy adventure, except this time we'll all be together!
