When I decided to write a blog, I thought it would be easy. Have fun every day. Write a few words each night. Post once a week. No problem.
Obviously that hasn’t happened. So what went wrong?
I’m Having Too Much Fun
Every day is a new adventure. There’s so much to see and do, and I don’t want to miss a moment of it. Given the choice between going back to the hotel and writing, or watching a sunset, the sunset wins every time. We’ve been changing locations every few days, which means even more to see and do. I’ve been given this wonderful opportunity to travel and I’m going to take advantage of it.
Having fun can be exhausting. I’m not complaining. There is nothing better than your head hitting the pillow when you have had a full day. I’ve never slept so good. Seriously.
We try to be active every day, partly for our health, partly because we like to hike and partly because we want to eat and drink with abandon. Some days we have been a little too active. Like that day we went for a 15 mile hike, took a wrong turn, and had to back track 3 miles up a long hill. As a result, we went for an over 18 mile hike.
We went for a 28 mile bike ride in Napa…stopping only for wine. All we need to do now is find somewhere to swim and we’ve done a triathlon.
Technology troubles are the bane of bloggers everywhere…especially those on the road. Finding an internet connection can be a challenge. Surprisingly, not every hotel has Wi-Fi. Those that do can have sub par connections, or charge exorbitant rates. We’ve had to resort to finding McDonald’s everywhere we go to take advantage of their free Wi-Fi. Thanks, McCafe.
I love my new Surface hybrid tablet/computer…sort of. Whenever something goes wrong, I just don’t know how to fix it. Restart isn’t the fix that it seems to be for regular computers. I can’t just phone a friend back home for tech advice. I can’t google the solution because…no Wi-Fi!
No More Excuses
We’ve just arrived in San Francisco. We’re here for a week, and starting today I’m going to make my blog a priority…just as soon as I get out and see the Golden Gate Bridge, and Alcatraz, and Fisherman’s Wharf, and ride the cable cars, and…
