Self Portrait Tuesday: Personal History

Me at Dam Square, Amsterdam. 1989. Photo by Craig Brammer.

 

Okay. I'm exposing a big skeleton out of my closet here. I had a mullet. But it was the 80's and that type of hairstyle was not called a 'mullet' or anything, really. It was just a style that was popular (well maybe with just a few). Hey, even Bono had one.

 

It was 1989 and I was on a 2 1/2 week long trip overseas with a group. The main part of our trip was traveling throughout Turkey, but we had a 2-day stay in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria, and in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I just wished that I knew about all the magnificent museums in those two cities. I went into this trip not knowing too much about the places that we were going to visit. Definitely learned my lesson since then.

 

It was my first real trip away from my family, clearly on my own and such a fantastic experience . I learned so much about other cultures and just what it was like to experience places and even buildings that were older than the country that I was from. What a trip it was.

 

I learned all that and with a mullet to boot.
