One of my favourite type of posts to write (and apparently Google’s to rank) is the classic itinerary post. So you’ll forgive my
horror surprise upon discovering I’ve written TWO.
Only two itinerary posts!! Needless to say, I’m outraged at myself and very motivated to write more about my favourite countries around the world. I started with India and South Africa, but I’m expanding y’all and next on the list is the country I know better than my own.
Yep, it’s Thailand.
Before I went to a festival with my newborn, I scoured the internet for examples of people who’d done the same. I found one website dedicated to kid-friendly festivals and not much else. Which is as good a reason as any to go ahead and write a guide myself!
I’m a fairly seasoned festival-goer and even went to a festival while pregnant with Anaïs (Bestival – not recommended!) but I was apprehensive about the idea of packing my perfect little baby (not literally you understand) and taking her to what can all too often be a debauched affair.
Woop! It’s the return of the packing list post.
It’s been so damn long since I wrote a travel post I’d almost forgotten how. I know that sounds strange, but travel hasn’t been part of my life for most of this year (due to you know who!) so I haven’t been reading anything let alone writing it.
So it’s only fitting I ease myself back into travel writing with a good old fashioned packing list post. My favourite type of post to read AND write. Honestly! If you want to see just how much I love writing these kinda posts, head on over here to the travel packing archives 😉
I’m not in love with the title of this post, but I hit a blank on how to sum up what I’m trying to say here. I also *really* wanted to do a top ten style post because time. There just never seems to be enough time in the day to blog anymore because baby. And podcast.
Okay, enough of the millennial style non-sentences. Let’s dive in, shall we?
Oh, so you probably don’t remember that I’m supposed to be a travel blogger. Yeah…about that. Sorry you guys, I was grounded in January after my South Africa trip and I haven’t even thought about travelling for what seems like years, but is actually only a couple of months.
Almost every post I write, and every post I love writing, comes from a reaction to a post I love or hate reading. Which is a great thing for inspiration, but it sometimes leaves me a little worried about being too reactionary. I don’t wanna be known as the ‘negative blogger’ but I DO want to be known for honesty. If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I’m nothing if not honest. Mostly….cos’ some things are sacred guys!
