I first travelled overseas in 1999, leaving home three days after my 50th birthday. I kept a hand-written diary and sent a lot of postcards! Then came emails to different individuals, followed by a single detailed “Dear Everyone” email. Blogs took over from the emails and those not really interested in detailed travel stories no longer had their in-boxes cluttered with such trivia.
The first blog was born in 2008. One blog became three as I ran out of free space (because I’ve been lucky enough to go on more “see a bit of the world” adventures) and as I’ve experimented with different ways of adding information.
To those who enjoy the results and tell me so, Thank You.
