It’s great to keep in touch with folks back home. I don’t know how I would’ve survived without Skype, emails & along with My Mum’s telephone provider allowing her to call me free for as-long as she wants. We have a code , 2 rings & she calls me back, maybe far away but only on the end of the phone. Twitter came along to me, later than most, couldn’t get it at first but then I was hooked. I’ve passed my obsession over to my Dad now, @bikeral64 , purely of course to keep him up to date with the techie side of life 😉 but we now communicate in 140 characters or less – short but sweet but we get the message across 😉
Blogging too, has helped on many occasion when, perhaps I need to sit and take a look at what I’ve achieved, what’s happening around me & what obstacles I have overcome. Also what delicious meals I have created or eaten, I have shared with friends and now a wider audience, all thanks to technology.
It has been great to be asked to share my experiences with others too , and Midlands Food Bloggers who have created a platform for ‘Foodie’s based in the Midlands area of the U.K , hit home to me. My area, the home where the other half of my heart lies, and the place where my food & travel life adventures were born…
At a young age, food & travel were always high on my agenda, starting my early working life, in a village pub, waitressing then being promoted to food prep, and then cooking, whilst at college studying Travel & tourism. This paved the way for my adventures to come. Being fortunate to travel to some far-flung places as a Tour Representative, led hand in hand with trying new cuisines, visiting some of the worlds best restaurants, thus confirming ‘yes’ food was going to pay a major part in my life.
After my travel career, family life started and the story goes on…..
You can read about the next part of my journey from Warwickshire U.K to the mountains of Andalucia, and how my ‘Foodie’ quest has continued.
