Sometimes you do. Sometimes it’s hard to get something started ‘just because’. It shouldn’t be. Writing should be something you just do, because you love it, or because you have interesting stories (or think you do!), or because you have a bad memory and want to document your days and experiences. It seems strange to me that we often need an ‘event’ (Hello brides! Hello new parents!!) to get a blog up and running, when really, we should just get things started.
That said, I needed a reason to get the ball rolling on this bloggy behbeh.
On the 18th of July, my darling fella and I are embarking on a 5 month adventure around the world. This is a HUGE thing for us – it’s the longest time either of us have ever been away from home, and it’ll be the longest time we’ve spent together alone; we’ll have friends and family joining us along the way, but in the nearly 8 years we’ve been together, the longest we’ve been “just us” has been about 2 weeks. Tis a pretty exciting prospect!
Soooooo, The Adventures of Wembolina is a diary of our travels, and the leadup (we’ve got 5 weeks to go!), and the aftermath. This is a way for us to plan and keep in touch and share our tales and photos and good bits and bad bits, but most of all, document everything. I hope you like it…
