Let's get started.
Every adventure starts with a first step. This is it.
I am starting an adventure blog. But first you need to know why I want to write it, what I'll be writing, and to whom I am addressing it.
First, there are so many thoughts running in my mind, great ideas that I eventually forget, realisations that I forget I had, wonderful memories that end up disappearing... So, writing them down is a good way to perpetuate them..
Second, I know that the things I do and think can inspire others who need to hear them. I'm not being presumptuous, but I know that when I read other people's blogs or follow their Instagrams or YouTube channel, simple things that they say or do that may seem banal and everyday to them can inspire me a lot, and so, why not share all that I have learned and figured out with others that could benefit from these things ? That way it's not completely all for nothing....
For whom ?
Essentially for women my age who may need inspiration, or who would enjoy dreaming about a different life, or motivation to improve their life or who would like to escape their daily grind, maybe some don't realise that's it's possible to really escape the normal way of living. I'm not saying I'm exceptional, but no-one is the same and maybe who I am and what I do can bring inspiration ! That's all really, I'm not looking to change the world... As I've heard said before, if I can just be useful to one person then my life will have been worthwhile :)) And if not well then at least my thoughts will have found order and be recorded.
What will I write about ?
To start with, I'll describe who I am and how I've come to be here and this. To give some context.
Then I will talk about what I want to do with my life, my dreams for the future.
I will also write posts of things I have learned, useful information and tips for the things I am busy researching at the moment.. Because I regularly hook on a new subject this will not be consistently one topic.
Right now I know there will be posts about emigrating to France, vanlife ideas, voice-over tips, freelancing, nomad life, travel tips, my views on South Africa, how I brought up my children...
Well who knows what else I'll get interested in, I plan on sharing it all, so watch this space !
PS: in a lot of my photos, you’ll see me wearing sunglasses: if I post the photos without, you’ll run away thinking I’m some sort of alien… because my optometrist gave me transition contact lenses that darken in the sun, result being I end up having super-weird-looking purple eyes…
PPS: Also, I will certainly write in either English or French so I’ll translate from one to the other to make it more accessible..
Enjoy the ride !
