Somehow, four years have passed since I started this blog. In that time I’ve moved house (and countries) twice and travelled to more than 100 different destinations. [I made that last part up. I’ve no idea how many countries I’ve been to since I don’t naturally keep track. But people do ask, so I probably should. One of these days…]
It’s time to pause and take stock and to try to imagine, if I can, what I want the next four years to look like. And then to get back to work creating them.
I’d be interested to hear from you, in the comments below or by email if you’d rather stay private.
What do you want this blog to look like?
And why have I chosen this picture? I’ve noticed something peculiar happen to those who work in the travel sphere. In the search for something new and unusual, people get jaded. They stop noticing the beauty and the brilliance in the sights they’ve already seen and I don’t want that to happen to me.
Last month, I travelled to Paris and I saw this (no filter, these colours are real.)
And in the words of Audrey Hepburn, I thought “Paris is always a good idea.”
I don’t know about you, but I’d always like to think like that.
Over to you…
