Yes, we're well into July now, and it's time to go travelling - and not just on the #atozroadtrip.
One of the things I enjoy most on the #atozchallenge are the travel blogs. I don't know why I don't take more notice of them through the year, but it seems to me that picking a travel theme gives you a great opportunity to show off your holiday snaps AND engage with people who have been to the same places, or would like to go to the same places, even from their armchair.
Are you holidaying (vacationing) somewhere nice this summer (or winter, in the Antipodes)? I'm thinking hot summer days with a pleasant breeze to stop me melting; shady beaches with waves lapping, palm trees waving, good food and pleasant company. Nice countryside to walk in would be essential, and a few interesting buildings to fulfil some cultural yearnings would be nice too. Sounds like I ought to be back in Goa, or somewhere else in India - or maybe substitute the palms for pines and do the Mediterranean - Knossos would be nice, I've always wanted to go there. Or is Disneyworld more your thing? How about the Harry Potter world?
My next holiday? I'm going to the arctic circle to see a total eclipse of the sun - next March. So that's E for Eclipse sorted out!
