I’ve talked myself out of doing this blog so many times. It turns out I am very persuasive. This time I thought I would really shake things up by talking myself INTO something for once.
So, that brings us here to my blog. Welcome and thanks for dropping by! This is a touch awkward, of course, seeing as you don’t know what you are in for and I don’t know who you are at all. But rest assured, my breath is fresh, my palms are not sweaty (much), and I think conversation will be zippy between us!
Here’s the thing: I have some stories to tell about places I have been. I think I have a lot of them, although I haven’t actually counted…this could be embarrassing when I grind to a halt at #37. Over the last 12 years I have been lucky enough to visit many places around the world. Some strange things have happened, some wonderful food has been set before me, and some memorable moments have been carried in my heart.
I would like to choose three of these destinations every week for one year and write about them. (Let’s just acknowledge, after a year and a half, that I will never be able to write 3 posts per week. I’ll just get them to you as often as I can in between life and other distractions.) I mostly hope to remember and reminisce on my own travels and allow you a glimpse of places you hope to visit or maybe places of which you’ve never heard.
Everyone likes a plan, don’t they? Well, I do, so let our tour follow the one below:
- Plate of food
- The best
- Story that needs to be told
These are things I like to hear about a place, so no doubt you are EXACTLY the same. Obviously. Hopefully the blog posts will appeal to your senses and give you a lovely snapshot of a far-away land to distract you from the snow/rain/excessive heat at your door, the deadline waiting to be met, that new fitness regime that seemed like such a good idea on January 3, the children who clearly do not respect your need to trawl through new blog posts….you get the idea. Let me transport you!
I suppose this is travel without the expensive tickets, the queues, the vaccinations (some of them last-minute, more on that later), and the jetlag. This is letting me remember and you come along for the ride. You seem like you would be a great travel companion, not one who would pinch all of the mini conditioner in the hotel bathroom or hog the armrest on the plane. Let’s go!
