Italy, I love you, but I have to say this: your drivers are mentalists. Being a Brit, no matter where I travel, 90% of the time I’m on the “wrong” side of the road. Because the rest of you drive on the daft side. But leaving that aside, Italy, even when I’m used to driving … More Girl, On Driving in Italy
…I’ll be ready to fly. This time two weeks I’ll be on the Colorado slopes. This time three weeks, I’ll be in the most stunning Utah landscapes imaginable. With my new wide angle camera lens. Very excited! (Thanks to Mark Stevens on Flickr for the gorgeous image)
It’s strange when I look back at all my posts since I started blogging and contemplate the person I was back then, and how much has changed. Girl, Independent was born back in 2011 out of a frustration to get away, at least mentally, from a job I hated and into a world where I … More Girl, on Independence
In an effort to get back into blogging, I recently stumbled upon The Daily Post, and their daily inspiration ideas. Today’s caught my eye – What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world? I love the title – “Be the Change”, as a great and famous Ghandi quote … More Be the Change
I’d almost forgot that once a year on the last day of the year, Wordpress sends me a review of what’s gone on in my blog in the last 12 months. I remember being really chuffed last year when it arrived out of the blue and I relived some of my travels from the year, including my Sardine Run adventure and diving with sharks.
This year’s review however, was slightly disappointing. … More 2013 in Review : a great year, but a blog neglected.
So, I decided to redesign my blog. Try a new theme. Fancied something new. I saw this one one a few blogs and really liked the clean feel on the home page, and while it’s not the best theme for the iPad (Blogsy app doesn’t support featured images yet, but it’s still a nice little … More Spring cleaning my blog
I’ve been packing today. As I fly tomorrow, I’ve left it late as usual, although in my defence, I have been planning for it all week. As always, I created a list on my iPhone (using the Shopshop app, a great little easy todo list app) and adding things to it as they come into my head. As a seive-brain, I find this is a minimal-stress way to prepare myself. Otherwise I’m bound to forget something. … More What’s a girl to pack: My Can’t Travel Without list.
So…. This is my new blog.
Or rather what my new blog will look like. I hope there will be a few more posts at some point in time, obviously. Otherwise it would be a pretty rubbish blog.
Anyway, I’m learning. Deciding what to blog about. What I want my “brand” to be, and all that. Which iPad app to use (bloody hell, that’s confusing). How to get photos the right size. Which theme to use (I think like this one…but it might change). Setting up a twitter account too. I’m definitely learning. … More Hello world!
