My first ever blog was a travel one. It was private, a way to share my trip to Australia with my sister. I’d got an iPad as an early birthday present and MasterS researched the options and helped me set it up. Then I got the bug….

Track back two years.

It’s 2010. I’d started reviewing on TripAdvisor, I’ve never been an early adopter, I only joined Facebook in 2013. Anyway, Trip Advisor,  we’d stayed at a B&B which encouraged reviews   It was very good, and newly established so I didn’t mind going ahead.

And so Mrs Starke made her find appearance.

Return to 2012.  I decided to continue with my blog, but this time to make it public.

I intended it to be a travel blog.

 

And there we hit a snag………

To write a travel blog, you really should travel. But a lot of my travelling had been accompanying MisterS on his trips abroad. And in 2012, he retired.

 

 

Hmmm.

But then we got…..

DogStarke.

And she became the subject of many posts.

 

And travel took on a whole new emphasis. We began to search out dog friendly places.

We discovered  Le Shuttle was the most dog friendly way to travel to Continental Europe.

And made some trips to France.

Though we had to leave her at home with MasterS for this one

 

And then we moved. And started a whole new life. Welcoming travellers .

So our own travels tended to be curtailed and restricted to “staycations”

 

But I’ve still got itchy feet, so we plan to use our off season to travel.

And I’ll tell you about it.
