Why did I stop?
Initially it was that I wanted to actually put up photo's with the places that I've been too (and was having serious issues on getting them up), but after a while it reached that kind of stage where you've left something undone for so long it's got it's own special kind of pressure, and so I kept not doing it..
After a while of not posting anything I decided that no, I still wanted to post things, but I wanted to post things I enjoyed and that I wanted to tell people about rather than ones that I didn't... Besides writing about my travels when I didn't want to, well it won't convey the sense of joy and story of places I've been... It'd be more:
I went to a place, the sky was grey, I liked the buildings.
too cold, too abstract, especially as a lot of the places I enjoyed up in Scotland and in Netherland were because of the people/atmosphere and the experiences had while there! Fantastic!!!
Where to now?
Well now I've decided not to worry about posting where I've been exactly and instead to talk about what I'm interested in, whatever that is at the time, there are a few stories from my travels:
- Absailing down the tallest building in Rotterdam
- The morags of Inverness
- Curious sheep of Pitlochry
- Mad managers of Outer Hebrides hostels..
that I'd like to still share, but I'm not going to stress about it, I'll share them when I'm ready and not before. Of course you're still welcome to bug me about it, it might help get them up a bit quicker (at the least it'd let me know that you'd be interested in reading about them) :-)
So in the meantime take care of yourselves, enjoy reading whatever you wish, and I also recommend checking out http://www.gadgetopia.com/2004/12/31/TheLongTail.html an interesting site that will bring you random posts from all sorts of blogs around the world.
