2014 Update

It has indeed been quite a while since I’ve posted something on this blog. I lost interest in it for quite a while and left my potential readers hanging without finishing off my Okinawa trip blogs. Well the good news is that I’ve decided to take this blog back up again, mainly because I will be doing a 100 day Europe trip starting this coming May and I have interest in keeping a record of my travels not only visually but also in writing. So that is definitely something to look forward to.

I intend to keep a similar writing style to my previous blogs (informative) as this style keeps my page hits consistent with those looking for information. On a side note I will be writing the blogs first in word as the spell checker is better to avoid the huge amount of grammatical errors that were through my work when I use to blog. So hopefully that keeps down the typing/grammatical mistakes.

I intend to finish off my Okinawa trip blogs, followed by another Japan Tour blog (mainly from Osaka) from when I was there in November. I hope my potential readers out there enjoy the new blogs. Happy New Year and best wishes for 2014.

General Update

For those of you who have been waiting patiently for new blogs to appear, that will soon happen. I have now finished back blogging and I am quite happy with the overall look of this website. It is definitely more streamlined than the last blog system I was using. New blogs will start appearing one per week, every Saturday AEST +10 at approximately 5pm every week. Thank you for your continued reading and support.
