Blogger of the Week (12 October 2014) - Nomads

"When I'm travelling, I really know that I'm alive."

Nominated by D MJ Binkley "I would like to nominate Nomads for blogger of the week. They weave a bit of historical information into their stories and we enjoy the impression and word pictures painted along the way. We love bloggers who write about the people they have met along the way."
Laurie and Viv
Introducing... Nomads.

When people ask me why we travel, my usual response is to say - "Because, when I'm travelling, I really know that I'm alive". My wife is more likely to say that it's because she hates cooking and can eat out every day but the simple fact is... we love to travel. The experience is usually so intense that every detail becomes indelibly etched in our memories. I might not be able to remember what I did on any given day at work last year but I can still clearly remember the events of our first trip to India in 1994 - almost as if it only happened 6 months ago. ... full info

Congratulations Laurie and Viv! Your blogs are so fabulous, I'm glad they'll now appear on the front pages for all to enjoy. Can't wait to see where you'll be hiking and exploring this year! Another corner of the Mediterranean, perhaps? Best wishes! Reply to this

Wow... we confess to being a bit bowled over by this somewhat unexpected honour but are chuffed nonetheless. We both love to travel and share our experiences but it's always nice to know that those experiences are enjoyed by others too. Thanks very much to Dave and Merry for the nomination and to everyone else who has forwarded congrats.... guess that means we'll just have to keep up the good work then! Thanks again - Laurie and Viv Reply to this

In response to: Msg #185941 Thanks Tara. Currently working on an entry covering a walk on Cornwall's Bodmin Moor that should be ready for publishing soon. We will also be blogging about a visit to Egypt's Santa Caterina and Mt Sinai later in the year..... look forward to dropping by sometime and catching up with your adventures too. Best wishes, Laurie and Viv Reply to this
