I have kept a diary all my life, and that is mostly what this blog is, – a diary of travels to new places, cycling, walking, running, climbing, painting or camping. And the photos I took along the way. I am a painter, so I also have a visual diary, with paintings from wherever I have been, and a Gallery showing my work is linked on the right hand column of this blog.
Currently I am posting about our Summer 2015 visit to the Italian Dolomites, where did a lot of Via Ferratas of varying Grades and heights.
Before that I was posting on our backpacking trip to Iceland in July/August 2014 and prior to that, a very long series of diary entries from a 4,000 mile cycle-camping trip made in 1984, using my prolific diary from the time. Photography was not what it is now, and as we were travelling light and film was expensive not many photos were taken in some places. In this case I have supplemented my images with pictures from my diary that I collected in Tourist information literature at the time and pasted into my book. I have also occasionally used Google street view images to show the area that I write about.
Here is my Gallery on Etsy if you would like to see the visual part of my journals
I’m glad to have found your blog, it is great. I read several articles on your blog and I think it is useful for the tourists =)
Let me introduce myself, My name is Sam, a HongKonger who love travel. Two months ago, I had created a attractions based travel site which aims to connect the bloggers and the tourists. Bloggers can share their articles, photos or comments and let tourists find the useful travel information more easily, just like an index of blogs and attractions. I know you write a lots of articles about different attractions and i believe you will write more in the future, so I would like to invite you to join our community and share your articles and photos to let the tourists can read your travel story. Hope you will join us to share the travel information with each other.
Look for your reply, hope you all the best!
