26 days until Camino numero siete. I can’t wait…no, literally! This feeling doesn’t get old.
And naturally enough, I want to bring you along with me…well, not carry you, but you know what I mean! I hope to write about my 2 weeks away and I hope it will be useful to most of you. But I won’t be doing that while in Spain. No, I plan to start writing when I touch back home in Dublin. The blog will be barren for a number of weeks from the start of September, but I hope you understand. The goal is to journal (write with a pen!!) while abroad and use those thoughts as part of my posts. So I don’t want to keep you out of the loop! No, quite the opposite!!
I will be posting quite a few photos of interest while on the Camino on Instagram (@clearskiescamino) and the occasional post on my Facebook group page. So if you want to follow me while I walk and you use either Instagram or Facebook, add me on either. Or even both if you wish :). If not, I hope you don’t mind sticking around until the 16th of September when I start to process my thoughts.
I’ll write more until I go on the 4th. Until then, Buen Camino!
Another day gone and finally got my bag packed. It’s a little too full so might need to make some adjustments but I’m nearly there.
Now to find my passport…
Well I never thought I would leave this poor blog unattended for so long. Everytime I go online, I think..”Ok, I should write something!”, only to be distracted by a random tweet, or even a balloon flying high over Colorado. And there are plenty of other things that have put me off writing (Work, Study, Exams, Being too tired). That aside, would you want to venture into an old house with cobwebs in it? Or would you say to yourself..”Hmm there is potential!” I’m leaning towards the latter at the moment. I’d rather not delete the blog as I know down the line I would set another one up like I have done in the past. But I think I should keep this active, leave it on view, and anytime a random thought comes into my mind, I’ll write it down here.
So what have I being doing lately? Well I am just back from a trip to Leeds which I enjoyed..even if it was for the one day. I have just recently set myself up with a digital box with UPC. Great to watch and it is so handy, but service is pants when something goes wrong! I have finished up programme selling for the year….until the France play off that is! It should be a sell out but I RARELY like working at soccer matches! Roll on the GAA season, that’s what I say. Anyway, thats really it..not much more going on. I’ll write again soon…..but I wouldn’t put too much money on it!
Ok, I’ve a serious apology to make, not only to this blog but to all readers. I keep meaning to update this every so often but rarely have the time or the patience to do so. Even on weekends. It is a pity because I used to have great enjoyment writing posts when I started. It was a good idea to start off with but I’m not so sure. I’m not so good with commitment 🙂
I have been paying most of my attention to work, study and when I can to last.fm. I can’t believe its over a month since I wrote my last post!! Since then I have enjoyed St Patricks Day, I have watched Ireland overcome Wales to win the Grand Slam and have also taken up an interest in classical music! For no apparent reason may I add.
Ok, so the plan is that I will keep this blog open, write on it whenever I can and try not to age too much. Don’t forget to follow me @clearskies if you wish! Talk soon.
