When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money. ~Susan Heller

I read many travel quotes looking for a suitable opening to my blog. A line or two that would aptly describe my penchant for (mostly European) travel.  There were some extremely interesting and thought-provoking quotes although none really described my thoughts or feelings. That was until I came across the above quotation  by Susan Heller.  I follow the words of the quote to the letter, I lay out clothing, toiletries, shoes, pack and unpack several times yet still manage to have my luggage right on the baggage limit at the airport weigh in counter.  As my favourite pastimes are travel and shopping weighing in at the limit before I leave home is a very frustrating indeed.

This blog is about my travels, it may touch on shopping, on the odd occasion, but will mainly document my travel as I work my way through my bucket list (more like a my barrel list), I have kept family and friends entertained and informed through email on my various trips over the past 12 years and felt that a blog was the next level.  Time to step up my technical ability, it’s also easier to keep everyone informed with a blog, no more long email lists, less chance of forgetting to add my sister or a  friend to an email list.  Although given it’s up to me to grant access there’s still potential for upsetting someone!!!!

Enough prattle it’s time to let the journey begin……….
