Travel Tuesday. Travel and Blogging
I love to travel and I love to blog so aren’t I lucky that the two go so well together??
I mean, you get to take pictures of everything and the adventuring bloggers with you do the same.
You get to blog about your sisters and they can blog (or Facebook) about you.
You have a valid reason to take pictures of whatever you think is interesting . . . even if it’s just shelves lined with bottles.
Nothing is out of bounds . . .
store aisles . .
Bakery cases . .
and delicious pastries.
You can buy mile high fruit pies guilt free. After all, you need to ‘review it’ for your blog!
Back when I first started blogging I got strange looks everywhere I went as I snapped away, chronicling my adventures with my camera. “You’re a blogger? What’s a blogger???”
These days social-media savvy businesses often welcome you if you tell them you are a blogger.
This sweet young woman from Kraus Berry Farms in Langley B.C. made me a special waffle to blog about after I missed the process because I got distracted by all the pretty things inside the store. I tried to tell her I had already eaten one but she insisted on making another so I could take it out into the garden and take pictures wherever I wanted with it.
You have to get brave though, as you blog and travel. All eyes were on me as I stepped over the ropes into the garden with a waffle in one hand and my camera in another, trying it first in this spot and then that one.
One thing to keep in mind if you’re a new blogger, is that there are certain places that do not allow you to take pictures. When Lisa and I were making our way through Pike’s Place in Seattle I went to take a picture of Lisa in front of one of the booths. The owner was quick to ask me not to take a picture of her wares. (the sweetest hand knit children’s hats) The same rule usually applies in high end gift shops. I almost always ask no matter where I am. Sometimes especially nice things can come out of it, like my waffle!
Blogging, travel and a sense of adventure go hand in hand. . .
and Tamara is one of the most adventurous people I know.
Hop up on a side saddle in a skirt? No problem!
Can you think of a better place to sit while you taste the locally made wine?
Best of all? Travel and blogging give you the opportunity to meet a whole host of new people, some of whom may even become your friends.
It doesn’t get better than that!
