There are so very many places in the world that I'd like to see -- but see as a resident, not as a tourist passing through. It doesn't seem likely that I'll accomplish this -- after all, there's a garden to tend and a a life to be lived here at the farm. Not to mention more books to write.
Plus, real life travel can be expensive and sometimes uncomfortable. So, while I wait to hear back from Herself about Miss Birdie, I'm enjoying a little virtual voyaging, visiting blogs in other lands -- you may have noticed some recent additions.
Somerset Seasons/Dorset Days
This one's from Leanne in England who seems to share many of my own preoccupations - gardening, chickens, old books, nature and her seasons. . .
Miss_Yves' Photograff is from France -- in French. I can read a bit of it--a very little bit -- but it's mostly photos -- and there's music. If you're checking it out at work, you might want to hit MUTE first.
In the Netherlands Reader Wil
shares pictures from her travels as well as her beautiful homeland.
There are a surprising three blogs from Africa:
The Egypt Experience is from Robyn, a South African who teaches English in Egypt. . .
Millet Love is the infrequent but fascinating journal of Nora, an American med student working in Mali . . .
and Thatchwick Cottage-- Eleanor's lovely words and pictures from South Africa.
Who knows where my travels will lead me next?
Is someone blogging in Mongolia?
