What’s all this, then? Yet another travel blog …
What is this?
So, we have finally got ourselves organized and set up a travel blog. We’ll keep you up to date on the travels of Andrew, Heide and Lachlan – past, present and future. We are in the very early stages of planning a Big Trip, but in the meantime we’ll tell you about some places we’ve been and where we manage to get to on vacations. We’ll throw in some advice and tips and tricks we’ve picked up along the way. We’ll share our Opinions which you may find useful if you’re heading to any of the same places we’ve been. If you do follow in our footsteps, write a comment and tell us all about it and whether we got it right or wrong.
Why a travel blog?
Frankly, the last thing the world needs is another travel blog (this post from the ever-awesome Yomadic blog explains this better than I can). Hopefully we can bring some perspective and first-hand information to the table, along with some cool pics. If nothing else, this will help us keep our friends and family updated on our adventures.
In between travels, we’ll tell you about some of the cool stuff right here in much-maligned Houston. There’s a reason we’ve been in Houston for nearly ten years now after coming here for what was supposed to be twelve months. The header pic for this post depicts the annual invasion of the grackles that we enjoy each year Houston. On this particular evening they livened up an otherwise tedious commute home.
What’s in a name?
With so many travel blogs out there (see previous paragraph), it can be hard to find a good name. We had to discard several good ideas that were already taken, until we came up with “Airports and Sunsets”. These are two things that are pretty much unavoidable when you travel (or at least they are for us when when we travel).
