I've been so busy with writing work, and traveling, that I've neglected this blog. In the past, I've used it as more of a spot to display some of the work I've done, but from this point on, that all changes. While I work on many different projects, including articles focused on alternative health, website copy and so on, first and foremost, I am a travel writer.
And, what kind of travel writer am I without a blog these days?
That's why I've decided it is well past time to change that. I have so much to talk about! In the last year alone, I have traveled to Newfoundland, Iceland, Italy, Mexico, Ireland (again) and in September I'll be in Greece for nearly 2 weeks followed by a trip in November to the Ecuadorian Amazon.
I hope my new, revived blog, will actually inspire some of you to get out there and travel more - it's amazing how visiting a place outside of your own country can give you an entirely new perspective, especially when you take the time to meet the locals and enjoy more authentic experiences, rather than sitting on a bus filled with other tourists. Of course, there is occasionally a time and a place for that too, I've learned, and have met some amazing people I wouldn't have otherwise from giving it a chance.
While many people think it's impossible to travel without being wealthy, it's just not true. These days there are practically endless ways to make it happen, if you really want it too.
I plan to write more posts about how YOU can do just that, as well as focus on the incredible destinations I've been privileged to visit, like Newfoundland, which I've absolutely fallen in love with for so many, many reasons. Of course, I will never forgot my first love, Ireland, and continue to visit as often as I can. as well as helping others plan their adventures in the Emerald Isle. I may even offer personal guided tours there in the near future. Anyone want to come along?
Stay tuned - next up: Why you really need to visit Newfoundland!
One little hint, even the icebergs have a sense of humor!
