Blogging Is the Way to Go!

We visited Riomaggiore today, part of Cinque Terre on the northwest coast of Italy bordering the Ligurian Sea.

Our current trip to Italy seemed like the perfect time to start blogging, and we nervously put our toes in the water. We thought it would allow us to catalog our retirement travels and allow interested family and friends to follow along. Word Press offers several options and we decided for a public blog and were a bit nervous about how our posts would be received.

After about a month, we enjoy blogging and it has enriched our trip in surprising ways. We have “met” people from the United States, Israel, the United Kingdom, Australia, Malaysia, Cambodia, Greece, Italy, the Czech Republic, Netherlands, and Canada who have visited our blog. Many of them sent comments or “likes.”

They may disagree, but, in a way, we feel like our friends back home in California and in our second home in Scotland are traveling with us.

Retirement is opening a new world to us, and so is blogging!
