Blogging across the Planet

T Minus 103

One of the fascinating things I have discovered in the past few months is the blogging community and the way you can get a real insight into every day life across the planet. As someone who enjoys seeing new parts of the world but who as yet seen such a small portion of the world outside of Europe it has been an eye opener.
It is also fascinating to see the locations of visitors recorded on the views counter day by day. We passed 9000 views yesterday so thanks to all who have been and read the musings of my daily life.

Some of you are anonymous – others I know through other Social Networks such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Another group of visitors are fellow bloggers and it has been great to see your locations through the pictures taken and words written. I have tended to seek out expatriate bloggers living or travelling in a foreign land as this is something we are embarking on.
Other bloggers are photographers and fellow participants in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.

Here are just a few of the blogs who with whom I have interacted. There are more to the right if you are interested.

Spring – 2

Spring Sprung

T minus 167

One of the things I will miss about the UK will be it’s seasons. This morning I took an early walk around the local area – taking in the glorious sunshine of an English Spring morning.

I love the way that the Milton Keynes Boulevards change from the grey of winter as if a giant artist had dabbed white paint across the trees.

This morning is a real tonic after the dismal wet and rainy winter. It’s been exceptionally mild which might explain the butterflies. I manage to photo the one below ……

Milton Keynes is far from the concrete jungle everyone imagines. All the photos below were taken within a mile of where I live.
