Let me ask you a question?
Are you tired of being stuck in the office? Bored of being chained to a desk? Counting down the days until retirement? Always dreaming of that next adventure?
I love walking, trekking and travelling and have pretty much spent my life trying to get out in to the hills and mountains whenever I can.
Over the years, I have had some amazing adventures and been to some fantastic places but like most people, I have to work really hard in between those adventures in order to finance them.
To help me through those periods of employment, I like to write about some of the adventures I have had. It helps me to relive those moments and to retrospectively process the places, people and events that made those adventures what they were and because I spend much of my working day writing technical documents it feels good to write something on a personal level for a change.
I know that there are thousands of bloggers out there. All travelling around the world for free. Somehow being able to blog for a living. Wouldn’t that be great? I am not that sort of blogger. I can’t see large travel companies inviting me on free holidays in the hope that I will post up a picture of myself in front of their hotel or whatever. I doubt I will ever be beautiful enough to achieve that!
I will just keep planning new adventures and blogging about my previous adventures in the hope that some poor souls who are lost on the internet just happen by and read about them.
If not, then they are just a journal for me to help me remember them in my old age.
