Photography, reading, walking, learning languages, meeting people, watching wildlife, horse riding, trying something new, … These are some of the passions that fuel my life and encourage my travels. I hate to see writing overwhelmed with clichés, but “variety is the spice of life” is one I’ll always be happy to use.
This blog is my way of exploiting my love of writing. I am keen to share my travel ideas, experiences and photographs. I hope you will find inspiration here, and that you will join me for a chat now and then by leaving a comment. Most importantly, I want to pass on a smile or chuckle.
My first post was from Edinburgh Castle in January 2013 and the blog has grown and developed since then, as I have learned new blogging and photography skills and discovered new things to share with you. I have been delighted and amazed at how many people have viewed my posts and now follow this blog. The camaraderie that exists among bloggers is not something I expected: there is always someone out there with an encouraging word or a great suggestion.
So thank you to all of my readers. Please keep following and commenting. I very much appreciate it.
If you want to contact me with suggestions, requests or any other comments, do drop me a line at email@example.com
Thank you too to my fellow bloggers who have chosen to pass awards my way. They are all very much appreciated but please reserve them for new bloggers. Feel free to pass comments my way but not the awards.
