    I like your blog and what a great job you seem to have. I think it’s fantastic that you are embracing your travel now while are young enough to fully savor all the joys and record your adventures with word and image. I did an enormous amount of traveling in younger years but didn’t really capture anything. I’m trying to make up for lost time. I share your enjoyment of blogging.

    Best wishes for continued success!
