Blogging update

I’ve been an exceedingly lax blogger lately. That’s cause I’ve been travelling, you see. And taking notes. But I’ve not transferred the notes to any electronic medium yet. A few resolutions: I shall get:

  • out of the 20th century
  • rid of pen and paper, and
  • a portable, small, lightweight laptop

Travel update

Since April, I’ve been a busy traveller, investigating the few remaining countries in Eastern Europe I hadn’t seen, all fascinating in their own way. I’ve visited:

  • Macedonia – the country still grieves the loss of their young Eurovision Song Contest hero Tose Proeski.
  • Kosovo – that fledgling nation who, I’m sure, would like to have Bill Clinton as their leader – or even god.
  • Latvia – stayed with Diga at Homestay in Riga. Nice place.
  • Moldova – with fab archaeological finds and cool monasteries in Orheiul Vechi and lots of life in chic Chisinau.
  • Transdniestr – back in the USSR.
  • NorwayTrondheim, city of the viking king – again.
  • Denmark – twice: Copenhagen for business and Legoland for pleasure. Cat’s pleasure, that is. I’m a little tired of those building blocks, genious toys though they are.

Articles will follow – just as soon as I find myself that little laptop. And before the kids and I take off for our first explorations of mysterious Wales next Monday. Keep y’all posted.
