Where I have been
I need the sun and the sea therefore I like to travel anywhere in the world where I don’t need five layers of clothing and furlined boots. My interests are history, museums, archaeological sites, islands, art and culture. All of which I find in my favorite destinations which are.
The Middle East
Future travel plans
There is still a lot of world left to explore and my plans for the future are:
A cruise along the Amazon
A trip on the Transsiberian Railway
All South American countries I haven’t been to yet
What I’m proud of
It’s a little over four years that glamourgrannytravels.com has seen the light of day and been launched into cyberspace. I’m proud to say that my readership is increasing steadily and that I get some very lovely comments.
My blog has been included as no.6 on the Top 10 boomer travel blogs2015 to follow on the flipkey list.
I also like to write for other publications and my latest achievement has been an article about Hasankeyf in Turkey, published on BBC/TRAVEL.
And, finally, I must not forget my fiction writing. My novel The Househusbands’ Club has won Readers Favorite Award 2009 in it’s category of chick-lit.
Bits and pieces
And finally some snippets about me which didn’t really fit into the previous sections.
I speak English, French, German, Spanish and a rather rudimentary Turkish. My preferred writing language is English. I am a member of the International Travel Writers Alliance.
I live currently in Spain, but my itchy feet make themselves felt, so I’ll move soon, just have to decide where to.
I love dogs but not cats. I am not a fussy eater, but I eat as little as possible because I constantly struggle with my weight. Therefore you won’t find many food posts on my blog.
I don’t like or use backpacks, suitcases for me, but the carry on variety. Hence I’m an expert at traveling light. In fact, ny next article will be full of tips of how to look great with very little luggage.
I’d love to hear from you, so, please, if you feel like it, post a comment.
Comments come with comment love.
