Here are my Top 5 favourite memories of last year's fun:
Reveling in the concert atmosphere when Alanis sang the iconic "Ironic". This was a monumental and defining song for me back in the 90s. It was the song that I played over and over and the song that helped me find the person I was trying to be as I struggled through my teens.
Cooking for my Godmothers and family during my last trip to Canada. It was just special to be able to do this for them.
As I fell out of the plane during my skydive and had a second to look down and focus on the cars on the ground. Tiny moving specks. In that moment, it seemed surreal that I was hurtling towards them.
Flying 2,000 ft above the very green English countryside and engaging in conversation with my 70 year old flight
instructor who had flown just about everything. He was an inspiration.
Seeing the wonderment in the eyes of the children I presented my travel tales to. Their looks of sheer fascination were all the motivation I needed to throw my nerves out of the window and keep talking.
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
