Transition Girl

Why transition girl?... Best answered by a quote from the Iliad....."The soul was not made to dwell in a thing; and when forced to it, there is no part of that soul but suffers violence."

my very first blog - my very first posting

My very first posting on my very first blog. So I'm not an IT neanderthal afterall. I haven't had a travel journal since I was a teenager so not really sure whether an online version will encourage me to write but I figure the electronic ether that is the w.w.w. gives me another avenue to vent my spleen and share those atrocious musings that I loosely call reflections of travel experiences.

Given I have only started writing this blog, a few relatively recent holidays have no accompanying travel notes. Unfortunately no record of my May 2003 diving trip to Vanuatu where I learned how to dive in open water to 100 feet, being trained one-on-one by an ex-pat Brit who reminded me of a bulldog. Alas, also no record of my June 2004 trip to London and the Amalfi Coast of Italy where I experienced perfect hair days every day but also struggled to deal with the size of the bumble bees there. Here's a photo of a room with a view instead.

This blog is not really a journal in the true sense of the word but it is helping me with a real writing task being undertaken behind closed doors - the novel writing is a work in progress...may be one day it will be finished and published. In the meantime, only my holiday musings will see the light of day.
