Where is home?

  1. Thanks for dropping by to visit Willy Nilly and deciding to follow along. I see you have a taste for adventure and this quote eloquently points to the the voice that spurs us on to solve that great mystery. What is out there? Will I find it in time? I hope to read much more about your travels here.

  2. Beautiful quote! Thanks for stopping by my site. I just started exploring the possibility of traveling full-time and writing about it but haven’t been brave enough to make the jump. I look forward to reading your adventures and following suit!

  3. Thank you for following me and I can see I’m going to enjoy following you (with the caveat that neither of us are stalkers) 🙂

  4. Heya terrific blog! Does running a blog like this require a lot of work?
    I’ve virtually no expertise in computer programming
    but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject nevertheless I just needed to
    ask. Thanks!

    1. It was taken flying over the alps. I can never understand how people with window seats can sit there on their phone and tablets on short haul flights when the window shows so much more!

    1. I was fortunate enough to be brought up in and around Oxford but I still failed to notice that one of my best friends from the age of 3 lived in a house called Rivendell until my husband commented ‘lovely name for a house’ and I replied ‘oh yes, that’s Katie Tolkiens house …’ Her father is John, nephew of the great man. 🙂

  5. Perfect quote for your blog theme. Interesting in that I traveled to Europe in my twenties and discovered I really don’t like traveling much at all. Must be part Hobbit. I do enjoy learning about other lands through travelogs, books, and blogs. Let me know when you get to Scotland–my ancestral land, particularly the Isle of Skye.

    1. Thanks for this, I am very curious though, as I know its a common thing, but what was it that you didn’t like about travelling. Also Scotland is one of the most gorgeous places on this planet. Not so much a hidden gem, but a peaceful paradise (excusing the rain).

      1. I really like the comfort of my familiar about me: clothing choices (suitcases are limiting), language (freely communicating is important), my bed (I love my bed, especially my pillow), and are just a few. Plus I found Europe very claustrophobic, the way the cities are packed in so tight with so many people. Ar least I did experience some traveling so I don’t have regrets later on!
