Apologies to all who have been eagerly awaiting more blogs. I had all good intentions of writing a regular blog. In reality this is near impossible when being wrapped up in the travel world. Unless of cause I was to decline an offer of a night out or to reside in an internet café in the mid day baking heat when I could be out having the time of my life. Writing my journal has been a struggle enough and haven’t written too much, this I regret so I am quickly trying to catch up with myself.

A Journal is and excellent and priceless tool. In past travel I have been religious in writing, I look back on the things I have been involved in, the people I have met, I jog my memory and reminisce. It is probably Journal reading that spurred me on the travel again.

So my advice to you is to keep a note of everything you do, even all the little meaningless events will give you much comfort in reading when you return home. As well as documenting what you do write about how you feel and the smells that waft your way as you walk through the bustling markets or past that open drain, Its these very memories photos don’t capture but your journal will hold forever.
