Last year at around this time I wrote a 24 day travel diary on our trip to Tahoe, Vegas and San Francisco, and I’ll confess it was hard work, especially when some posts topped a thousand words!
Part of the reason for that was I was attempting to document our activities in considerable detail. That provoked a number of plaudits, particularly from friends who were genuinely interested in our exploits, and not only when things went wrong – as they regularly did!
I started off in the same vein earlier this week with a monumental post describing our flight with Virgin Atlantic and arrival in San Francisco. Whilst it enabled me to exorcise the demons of the former, I for one found it extremely boring (“hurrah, thanks”, I hear you cry, “we didn’t like to say, but yes, we too found it pretty tedious”).
So the good news is that I do not intend to carry on like this. The bad news is that I will still be blogging periodically over the next eleven days, though it will take the form of brief observations and reflections on aspects of life here. If they are worthy of it, I may expand on some in later posts, but, for now, I will keep them short and, hopefully, pithy. After all, I need more sleep so I can be refreshed to enjoy the experience!
I trust that you will find that more interesting and even entertaining on occasions.
