MY FIRST POST - HOW IT ALL STARTED

Have girl will travel.


View Tasmania 2004 on Araluen's travel map.

Hello, this is the first post in my blog here. I have a number of other blogs and I'm used to posting in them, but this one seems the most difficult one to start for some reason. As the old saying goes, "It's always best to start at the beginning."

I started travelling when I went on my first holiday in 2004 - to Tasmania. And my first ever flight in an Aeroplane. Scary stuff. I was terrified. I looked at the magazine the airlines have in that little pocket on the back of the seat in front of you - I have no idea what I was reading, I just stared at it. Anyway, not wanting to bore you all with the details, suffice it to say I am now an old hand at this flying business. In fact - I love flying. It's like being free and just floating somehwere. (I am reminded of the tale of the little Nun, who on a flight had her Rosary beads clenched tightly in her fist, her lips moving. The man sitting next to her asked, "Are you afraid of flying, Sister?" To which the good Sister replied, "Flying, no. Dying, yes.")

I had a goal - to visit all the states and territories of Australia. I finally completed that goal, and have have a couple of overseas trips. I am currently working out where my next overseas trip will be. It will be somewhere in Asia and I'm pretty sure I want to visit Siem Reap again. It seems the number of flights and holidays I can do are in direct competition with my pocket!
Ah well, c'est la vie.

I didn't have a digital camera back in 2004 - this is a photo of a photo so the quality isn't all that crash hot.
