You may recall my post from last month when I first discussed Traveling Star Stumblers, this is another installment of Stumblers going around the world! Today I bring you Setabnevets aka Steven from Australia, who on his trip around the world stopped off to visit several other Stumblers!
His first flight on his epic journey was to Los Angeles, CA but the trip first began on Stumbleuopon, where he invited friends from SU to welcome him into their homes as he made his way around the planet. The following is a quote from his SU page:
New Update (August 22) Well it’s all underway now, Booked my flight yesterday… Leaving for LA on the 12th of September. I intend to explore the West coast of America, the start on the middle bits moving southward. Then from Florida flying down to Brazil & maybe other parts of Sth America. Then back up exploring the East coast, then over to the UK & Europe, & maybe Russia etc. Possibly South Africa New Zealand & then back home, Some six months or so later. Of course I may not get to every place I would like. I have been studying maps & have discovered that Planet Earth is very large.
If you are one of those who were kind enough to invite me to your home, would you please email me your address, phone numbers & any other contact information.
The Stumblers did just that! Setabnevets received an overwhelming amount of invitations to come stay in various countries with other Stumblers! Of course he was very busy along the way but he did stop off and log into SU every now and then to tell us where he was and who he was currently playing with from SU land! The first of such updates informed us that he had already been to Wilmington, Delaware, New York City, New burgh, Sara toga Springs, Houston Texas, New Orleans, Nashville Tennessee and back and forth between a few!
Here he is in Oxnard, CA With Guitargirl from StumbleUpon:
Steven has an open ended invitation to return and here is a bit of what she had to say about his visit:
Steven chose one of the busiest weeks of our lives to come visit! During the time he was here, he attended a flute recital, a high school football game (Rachel plays with the marching band), a jazz jam session, and joined us on a 3 day camping trip at Lake Cachuma.
While I was at work during the day, Steven cleaned my back patio, worked on my lawn, cleaned up my patio furniture (which I thought was junk – now it is beautiful!), and helped out with the kids. He picked Vaughan up from school and made sure he did his homework. Steven did all this while recovering from a horrible case of jetlag.
He sounds like a wonderful guest!! I wonder if he plans to do this again sometime? It was clearly a success!
Here he is with Akapearlofagirl:
Some of you may know fellow Stumbler setabnevets and that he’s on a world tour. He’s in Nashville this week and we’ve just enjoyed a night out on the town. Went out for dinner and to hear some music.
With fontanelle in December:
“My world stumbling is in my 4th month now. I still cant believe its happening”
British Airways lost my baggage
I have been in London for 8 days waiting for my baggage.
My daughter joins me in London today, flying to Germany on Saturday.
Although his trip wasn’t without its strife, I do believe he had a wonderful time! There is plenty more to this story so make sure to click through! Read the rest of this entry »
