I finally did it. I started a blog. I’ve been thinking about it for a while now, but couldn’t bring myself to pull the trigger. Who really wants to read about your travels? A question I asked myself a lot (and am asking myself currently). The answer turned out to be “who cares?” Who cares, indeed. If nothing else, I’ll have an online travel journal when I’m older. And since I’ve got a few big trips planned for 2018 – hello Florida, Ireland, Spain, and Italy – and my best friend J isn’t on Facebook, here is as good a place as any to share my adventures and photos. 🙃
My girl Cathy over at Panagea’s Box was the ultimate kick in the ass to get bloggin’ when she took her beyond epic trip to South Africa last fall. I anxiously awaited her posts so I could have a small glimpse into an amazingly vivacious culture and live vicariously through her. She’s in Costa Rica now and again, I adore that she shares her travels and life on the blog and Instagram so I can be exposed to more, and dream bigger.
Stay tuned… this won’t be a post-every-day blog, but I’ll be sharing my travel planning and trips as I take them.
First up: Tampa/Clearwater in March. This was supposed to be a girl’s trip to Key West last September, but Hurricane Irma laughed at those plans so we postponed.
On deck: Ireland (June 27-July 5), and my month-long solo adventure in August to Menorca & Barcelona in Spain, and Rome & Pompeii in Italy when I participate in a field school on an archaeological dig. Yes, you read that right – a dig. In Spain. At a 1st century BCE Roman settlement. 🙌🏼 So beyond excited for this trip!
