WOW! I can’t believe it’s been over a year since my last real post. Time flies! While I thought I would start this post with an explanation for my hiatus, I’ll just leave it at, “Life got in the way.” I’ve had another fortunate year filled with new adventures that I can’t wait to share. I have quite the back log so I hope you’re ready.
Instead of dwelling on why I left, I’m going to explain why I’m officially back. Every time I see a new place, I feel genuine happiness and a sense of fulfillment which I try to relive every now and then by looking through my old photos. So last week, I was trying to ‘go back to New York’ and found a disappointing display of foreheads and blurry skylines. Who’s phone is this?
I started to look at older photos for reassurance, hope, a decent photo,anything…Nada! As fate would have it, last July I forgot my little camera at home while going on a trip to the Masaai Mara and my laziness has since escalated into a few selfies and a more I’d-rather-just-look-for-the-mall approach to new cities. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Pencil eventually started getting forgotten too. Kiki kino? I once read that travel blogging helps you become a more intentional and attentive traveler. Although I can’t deny that I had a great time in the Big Apple, I have to say that I have almost nothing to show for it. It turns out that travelling inspired me to blog but blogging inspired me to travel.
And now, for my low-key Oscar acceptance speech!
Before I relaunch this little blog affair, I just want to take a moment to thank you for coming back to this page every so often. I kept receiving updates from WordPress about the number of daily visitors I was receiving over the past year and I am honestly humbled by your interest. Thank you for coming here even on days when I myself didn’t remember to.
Anyway, starting today I’m declaring war! Say no to laziness! Say yes to adventure! And come back here for some travel and food inspiration!
Bisous! (Is this my thing now? ;-) )
