Postcards from Travelling-Kat

What better day to start a new blog than the first day of a new year. The time when we are all thinking about what we will do in the coming year, where we want our lives to take us, the new experiences we want to have.

2011 for me, will involve a lot more travelling, a lot more photography and a lot more writing.

In 2010, I set myself a goal to have seen thirty countries by the time I'm thirty, fourty by the time I'm fourty and so on. So far, I've been to twenty three so I've got a bit of work to do.

This year, we're off to Canada (Vancouver and the Rockies) and then hopefully Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore later in the year. I'll be sending regular picture postcards from my travels and in between trips, I'll be talking about my travel wish list, day trips around the UK, weekend breaks in Europe and wherever else my life takes me.

I want this blog to be interactive so once a month, I'd like to feature another globe trotters tales, good or bad, funny or sad, from anywhere in the world. I'd also like to hear about where you plan to go on your next trip and where you just have to see before you die. I love to hear about other people's trips just as much as I love to go on my own, so please join in and talk to me!

So, welcome to my blog and I look forward to hearing from you soon - wherever in the world you are!

Before I go, I'll share a few photos from my 2010 travels...

Japan March - April 2010. The absolute trip of a lifetime and one I would do again in an instant. You can read about my trip over on my other blog. Just keep clicking on "older posts".

Morocco June 2010. I just love those little legs sticking out, seeking refuge from the days heat on the cold mosaic tiles! Read more here and keep clicking "older posts".

South of France August - September 2010. This is where my Grandad lives so we try to go as often as we can. We were lucky enough to see just the start of the autumn leaves turning a beautiful auburn gold, the canal by my Grandads house looked stunning (above). It was Scarecrow festival time as well so all of the villages had little scarecrows guarding the houses and shops made by the school kids. I never tire of France. You can read more on this trip here.

Scottish Highlands October 2010. We hired a minibus with twelve friends and drove for two days to get to Rua Reidh Lighthouse in North West Nowhere! There was literally NOTHING else around and it was amazing! By far the most fun I've ever had. And we were followed by a seal - the icing on the cake for me!

  1. This will be so much fun. I will share photos from my part of the world. The Pacific Northwest USA has many beautiful places and people from all over the world come to visit. I am looking forward to seeing your future trips and from others as well.
