I’ve loved travel most of my adult life though not always able to afford to go. Before we were married, my fiancé lived in England so my first touchdown point was there when it was my turn to visit him. From either his home or mine, we then planned travels. We may fly to a destination or rent a car for a road trip.
Now that we’re married and he’s living in Canada, we’ll be planning our travels together. We will still be visiting the U.K. since we have friends and family there, and can still use that as a starting point but there are lots of places in North America to explore as well.
In the past, I’ve taken bus tours which I’ve enjoyed though I know they aren’t for everyone. We still sometimes do day trips with companies that do organized tours but we are more likely to fly, drive or take a train and explore on our own these days. We go armed with lots of information, and with the internet at our fingertips, it’s so much easier to discover things to do. But there’s still something to be said for taking a side road and going off the beaten track at times, too.
I have a personal blog on Dreamwidth.com but I wanted to do one focused on travel. I will be posting travelogues, photos, video, and chat about past travel stories. I might talk about travel magazines, tv shows, books, websites and other media relating to travel that I find interesting. I also participate in a few weekly photo challenges hosted by both WordPress and by other people whose blogs I follow but the photos will be mainly those taken on my travels.
I’ve also started a blog for my interest/hobby in reading called Reader At Large, here on WordPress. I post reviews of the books I read and chat about other book related topics as they pop up.
I hope you enjoy my ramblings and journeys.
