I started this blog in mid-2011 when we spent five weeks travelling around France and Spain on a motorbike, to keep a record of our adventures and keep peeps back home in the loop. Only our parents ever read it but that’s ok!
In September 2012 we welcomed our first baby, the beautiful Emma. I’m staying at home with her while Toby brings home the bacon (or quorn, in my case). I’m so lucky to be able to do it, and it’s really great. But at the same time, it’s hard to not be using my brain, to not be writing. So I’ve resurrected the blog so I have somewhere to vent, to ponder, to put words together.
For some more history, during 2007-08 I also blogged our year in Edinburgh and final months of travel, including Turkey and a motorbike tour of France, Italy, Austria and Germany, here.
