Better late than never….

Right. I think it’s about DAMN time I started writing some stuff. We’ve been overseas for 18 days, have visited 6 different cities (7 if you include Lagos – but we won’t talk about Lagos right now); and I have about 800 photos to go through and decide which ones are best left for my private stash, and those of which I’d like to share with the world… Continue reading

People always put off travelling for many reasons –  whether it be a weekend away, or a gap year across the other side of the world.

It’s for me. I’m starting a blog for myself as a way to record this experience and look back on it in years to come.
