So I Started a Blog…

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 Iโ€™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. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

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. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ So beyond excited for this trip!
