I have often thought about keeping a diary or journal but have never done it.
When I married my husband, Steve, I bought a journal to keep track of our travels. We travelled and I never journaled. In fact, I have two or three beautiful journals in my keepsake drawer, each purchased with the best of intentions and each one... empty.
At the same time I've never had an interest in blogging. I enjoy reading other's blogs, mostly food related although some family/daily life sorts of blogs.
My husband and I are currently living at my sister's home in Chernex, Switzerland while Steve works on a project that will run until the beginning of May (hopefully longer!). We do a good deal of travelling together but living abroad for 7 weeks makes this our biggest adventure yet. It is wonderful that we are staying at my sister's since I feel at home in her house and I am familiar enough with the town and surrounding area to be able to get by on my own when Steve is at work or away.
I got it in my mind to start a blog to serve as my journal for this trip and also as a way to share the adventure with family and friends. I hope you enjoy my new endeavor and I hope you keep in touch while we're away.
