Um, so that was quite the hiatus, wasn’t it?
It’s not over yet. Or, I’m not sure if it’s over yet.
Let’s backtrack. I started this blog in 2016, when I was sure that 2017 would bring a year of adventuring. Then life intervened. I tried to keep this blog going, because we definitely never stop travelling, but my heart wasn’t in it in the same way in had been– or in the way it needed to be in order to run a blog on top of a full-time job. So I put it aside, and two years in a row I thought carefully about whether I should pay my yearly fee to WordPress to keep the blog going, albeit without any posts. Clearly, I decided to keep it.
So now, two years later, we’re ready to go. 2019 will finally be the year that M. and I spend travelling South America. We’ve got our leave approved from work and our one-way tickets to Buenos Aires booked, so it’s really real this time.
How does that translate to this blog? I’m not sure yet. I’d like to get back to posting, and I do think there’s a gap in this super-packed travel blog market for our tips and experiences. But will we have enough access to internet and free time to make this a viable project during our unsettled year? Will I want to be stopping along the way to share our lives, or should we just concentrate on living them? If I do start the blog up again, how will it be similar or different to what I started more than two years ago?
I have no answers to any of those questions. But I do have that one-way ticket to Buenos Aires, and that’s enough for me right now.
