Travel changes you. Or so people say. I’m not sure that’s necessarily true. I don’t really think that travel has the power to change you any more than staying at home and listening to the radio would.
But travel, particularly the kind that we did, slowly and over a long period, gives you lots of time to think. Add in an impending fortieth birthday and a sparkly new year, and you’ve got a recipe for some clean sweeping.
So while I can’t claim to be spiritually enlightened, I have made a few changes. Since we got home from our nine month journey, I’ve taken up running and knitting, become a dog owner and started to write a book. Before I move on to world peace, I thought I’d better get started on a new blog. So here we are, I hope you like it.
