Why a blog?
In the past when we have been away we have tried to keep in touch. But it’s never easy. Some of you tried to persuade us to try doing this via Facebook. For one reason or another we discarded that. So we are giving a blog a go. As well as it being a way to keep in touch we also see it doubling and becoming our diary of the trip. 10 weeks is a long time and we decided that we need to make it as easy as possible to keep it up.
