summer travel 2016

I’m  fortunate to have worked my socks off and to be able to  spend the next five weeks visiting Athens, Piraeus, the Greek isle of Agistri, Boitias, Malta, Gozo and Comino.

Instead of scribbling here and there in this notebook or that, I  decided to publish  in the form of  Travel Writing.

The aim of these pieces is to inform, entertain, and celebrate differences that catch my eye, or ear;   widen our understanding of other places, of other people as well as serve as a memory. Who knows it may even actually be of some use in providing information on places you’d like to visit – although there are the Lonely Planet guidebooks for that!

Having read a couple of LP guidebooks,  this blog may  offer additional information not already cited there.

Hope you enjoy this window into worlds you may never see – at least not the way I see!

I look forward to posting my first shared travel blog and many more thereafter!

  2. I really liked your travel blogs. They were chatty without being colloquial, informative in an easy smooth kind of way that unfolded like a conversation and communicated a respect and reverence for the country and its people. It told me somethings I didn’t know about Greece, its islands and its fishes! But in a skilled way that showed your knowledge and portrayed the people you met and their humour, as well as their hardships, with respect.

    I would definitely read more of them, especially if i was travelling to where you are writing about and they made me want to go there.
