For 6 years we lived the life of grey nomads wandering around Australia in Matilda a Toyota pop-top camper van, or as Jack called her, the sardine can. I documented our travels from 2010 to 2014 on a blog called “Gypsy Life”. https://pommepal.wordpress.com/2013/12/23/weekly-photo-challenge-one-a-tribute-to-matilda/
Occasionally we would have unusual visitors for afternoon tea
For the next 2 years 2014 to 2016 we did house sits in many parts of Australia meeting interesting people and loving this wide, brown land. I continued blogging. We knew that Australia was the only place we wanted to live. Life was free and easy. But as we grew older it was time to come home and settle down to a sedentary lifestyle.
Now my wandering, gypsy lifestyle is over I thought it appropriate to start a new blog. So here it is “Living in Paradise”.
So after a years “art sabbatical” I am now back in the blogosphere fold. Previously I was a rather obsessive blogger, doing a post almost every day, actually having 2 blogs “Gypsy Life” and “Memories are made of this”. The memories blog being more for doing various challenges out there and looking back through my photo archives and past experiences. I always had my camera hanging on my shoulder, I would look at the world around me and think about how I could document it in my blog. My activities revolved around finding time to blog…
So I took time out, I put my camera away, intending it to be a few months and suddenly a year had flown by…
It was quite liberating.
Now I feel the urge to start blogging again. But not every day! (Or so I say now!). During the past year I have been absorbed in art. Continued to love working in my garden.
My tropical garden
Occasionally even having short trips away.
I do hope you would like to join me. I will show you around the Gold Coast. Keep you up to date with my garden and other random things. I may even do the occasional challenge.
But I will try NOT to let the blog take me over…
Now comes another learning curve as I struggle how to put in links and other paraphernalia that goes with blog posts.
