... Hints to Lady Travellers!
A year ago today, I started this blog. Then I was in Aix-en-Provence, now I’m in Melbourne. Between France and Australia I travelled to Ireland, England, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Ireland again, France again, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Wales, France again, China, Japan and Singapore. And maybe Liechtenstein.
It has been a wonderful year and a big part of it has been the fun of writing this blog and sharing my stories with you.
When I started Hints to Lady Travellers I imagined I would struggle to keep it going for year – if I managed that. But HTLT is not ready to be put away in mothballs so the blogging will continue into the second year. Adventures on the horizon include trips to New Zealand, the US and Canada.
In the meantime, I would like to invite YOU to celebrate this happy birthday by posting in the comments. Yes, you. I would love to hear your favourite hint – not just to lady travellers, but any travellers.
I’m going to eat my cupcake now and toast Lilias Campbell Davidson, who concluded her Hints to Lady Travellers at Home and Abroad with these words:
If, by my endeavours, I have in any way assisted my sisters in their wanderings, or encourage a single woman to join the path of travellers by land or sea, I shall feel that I have achieved the object of my labours, and that my task has, indeed, not been in vain.
