  1. Imagine standing in the middle of a library and not having the urge to open a single book. There are people in the world who are not interested in books, and I can understand and accept that, but for myself I can’t resist. There are too many mysteries between those dusty pages. That is why I travel. Where ever I go, whatever I do the world is always at my fingertips and the urge to peel back its mysteries is too great to resist. On that note, I’m excited to read more of your writing!

  3. Thanks for subscribing to my blog! More than 6000 ‘full screen’ pictures from Norway are waiting on you!
    Digital travelling is the cheapest way to go πŸ™‚ and – you may do it whilst you are on an entirely different trip elsewhere!
    A good tip is to google ‘Norwegian counties’ and learn where they are located. Then open any post and activate the link to ‘INDEX’ where you may find everything – alphabetically listed under theeir respective counties. You may also read out the number of pictures included in each post. Please enjoy!

    1. I learn another new French word. I am happy to have you here. May you find journalism an interesting journey, for whatever it is, it surely is an educative and dramatic profession. I am looking forward to your stories too. Bisous πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Arv, for dropping by and putting in these lovely words. For some reason your comments had gone into my spam folder and I found them just now. Sorry about that. Compromises and all thrown into the mixture, life does challenge you but without them how would we know the goodness of being happy, right? πŸ™‚ Enough philosophising for the noon. You gave a lovely day!

      1. Ha ha! I enjoy philosophy so you can go on….. πŸ˜‰
        I don’t know but this spam thing keeps happening very frequently. Even though I have reported it to wordpress but they say technically everything is okay. I don’t know….why it keeps recurring! Thanks for updating me.

  6. Hello Beautiful Dippy-Dotty Girl!
    Thank you for visiting my blog and following me. I love your story and feel so inspired by you and your message. I admire how you quit your job after 5 years and uprooted your life to travel the world with your husband. You are brave and adventurous and I am looking forward to following you and reading more!

    1. Hello Alana, you are lovely to say such kind words. I had put in 9 years of work as a journalist so getting out of the grind was a bit nice πŸ˜‰ No more idea meetings. I must say I did a little freedom jig the day I quit my last newspaper. I am not that brave. You give me too much credit but yes I do love adventure. I shall look forward to following your journey too πŸ™‚ xx

  7. I totally agree with each word, was nodding the head at the ‘saving for travel part’. I have been lucky to have a partner who shares my passion for experiencing new worlds, like you I find great joy in discovering places, people and cultures.

  9. Wow, you were born in Oman? Which part? And how interesting that you lived in India then England. I bet New Jersey must be hard to take after all that! I’m glad you’re taking road trips to try to make the best of things. I highly suggest going out west. I live in northern Virginia, and have been here most of my life, but I find the east coast so boring!! Maybe it’s because I’ve been here so long! It’s so nice to find you, via Jo. I look forward to reading more about you. πŸ™‚

    1. A town called Salalah. I wonder if you have been.
      Thank you, it has been a wonderful ride. If the change from Oman to India was marked, so was it from India to England. As you remarked, it is a complete change of scene across the pond. Virginia, I have heard is gorgeous, and I can well imagine that you would find the East Coast underwhelming. It is not all that bad though. There is natural beauty at hand. Just that everything needs time here.
      Someday I want to find myself in Virginia and take in its beauty. Maybe it will be sooner than later. But our travels have taken a dip because my husband has been bogged down by work ever since we have reached the shores of NYC.

      I look forward to reading your posts too. And the pleasure is mine too! A cupcake shout for Jo indeed. πŸ™‚

      1. Yes, my sons came to visit me when I lived in Nizwa, and we drove down to Salalah for several days. We enjoyed our time there. I know it must be a huge culture shock, many times over! There are pretty places to be found here on the East Coast, and I love my home state of Virginia, but I love the more dramatic landscapes of the west. Hopefully your husband will get a break soon. πŸ™‚

      2. Culture shock is good though, it keeps us perked up. It is easy to give into complacency — that we know everything and that we have possibly seen it all.
        Whatever little I have seen of the West Coast, I am in awe of its beauty too! πŸ™‚
        And amen on the last thought. Hope you are having a good weekend.

      3. I love being immersed in different cultures. It definitely wakes us up and makes us take notice. When I was talking of the western US, I was thinking more of the southwest (New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Utah), but the West Coast is great too – just a different vibe. I hope you have time to explore a lot. πŸ™‚

      4. Truer words were never spoken. Arizona, Colorado and Utah have been on my list, now just to find time and land up there. I will look up New Mexico too. Cheers!

      5. I hope to spend a lot more time in New Mexico next year (2020). I only hit the northwest tip last year during my Four Corners Road Trip. I’m hope you’ll get there eventually. πŸ™‚

      6. I see why it is called the Four Corners Road Trip. Sounds epic. I will hope to cull tips from your future and past posts. πŸ™‚
