After all the sunshine in June and July and from our holiday in Tenerife, it’s hard to get my head around the rain this morning. Grey with precipitation that I can see, which means umbrella is required. Not sure whether this is a good thing or not as I pack to prepare for our drive to another holiday place I had planned in Shropshire. Perhaps it’s just as well. It’s probably raining there too.
An expat living abroad in Europe - an export really. Ten years on and I’m no longer the accidental tourist. Europe, UK, Australia, Singapore/Malaysia - I’ve either travelled extensively or lived there. I love travel - the journey, the history, the people, the adventure, the learning. Seeing the world with new eyes and just appreciating what is there. How far the journey I have come. My latest craze is hiking long distance trails - mainly along old monastic / pilgrimage routes. I love old buildings and it’s a way of connecting me with people from the past, their hopes and dreams. Travel taught me, that people are basically the same. And it is through food and culture that we come to have a dialogue. I am incredibly grateful. Thank you for spending some time with me. And do leave a comment so that I know you’ve been by.
