Hello  Bonjour  Ciao  こんにちは  Hyvää päivää  Jambo  안녕하세요 Selamat datang  Vanakkam    Xin chào    你好    As-salām ‘alaykum

solo, female traveller sharing my escapes – you lucky people, you – in picture and word format because I like taking pictures and apparently I like words, too.

1463102_10153563326035541_1374655359_nWhy sunburnt back?  When you travel by yourself it’s the part that you can’t reach with suntan lotion.  Genius, eh?

I’m not the best traveller, sometimes I’d rather sit drinking a glass of wine than sweating my way around a place – but I like to try and strike a balance between a hike and a sit-down and meander with locals.

I’m a Canon user, most photos taken with the very ancient 550d, looking to upgrade very soon. Take a look at some snaps from various corners of the world on Instagram, and feel free to follow me on twitter where I don’t post often enough mostly because I forget.

  1. Although the Monday Monkey is enough to get us following – your blog looks like a lot of fun! Look forward to what you have to share 🙂

      Thanks, it’s nice to have readers that aren’t blood related or have known me since I was seven, ha ha!


  2. Hi there,

    Hello newest Spikey! I know, a bit corny, eh, but that’s the term that has come to stick for those folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it, thrown in for good measure.

    My promise to you is not to be overbearing, just a couple of posts a day, maybe 3 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…
