Welcome to my blog

12 days in the sunshine (mostly)

***** New 28 May 2017 Turkeys, Christmas and Brexit

People can’t tell me why they voted Leave, so this is my take on what they voted for.

Why am I blogging?

I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for some time, but finally got going when I wanted to show some of the photos I took on our 6000 mile 7-week road trip through 12 countries in summer 2015.

I wanted to write something more than a short caption for my photos and I wanted to record some of the highs and lows of the trip.

I’ve looked around at various tools: other blogging programs, Facebook, making my own web pages from scratch, uploading text, and thought I would give WordPress a try. Let me know if you think it works.

And, if you are wondering about the header picture, it’s mist in Upper Nidderdale – the view from our house.
