Home today, Dubai tonight and Madrid tomorrow.

September 24, 2011

For a travel blog, this one is still grounded at home base. But only a few hours to departure this evening, so I’m happy to just do a little more practice with these posts on my notebook computer before the iPad and smart phone take over on the trip.

I’m still unsure about uploading my pictures when I blog with the iPad or smart phone. Worst comes to worst, I’ll have to edit them from my computer on my return. Still in the spirit of practice, here I am uploading a “view from a room” pic from home. I’ve spoken to other travelers who also take their “view from a room” shot from each of their travel accommodation stops. Janine and I have done this with each of our trips. It quickly locates our destinations and the variety of “views” is incredible – ranging anywhere from a grimy, smog-filled backstreet outlook in Beijing to a sunfilled, vibrant vista of Copacabana in Rio.

Wonder what our next view from a hotel room in Madrid will look like?

(By the way, quite a bit of humour at my expense from the family reacting to my little toy car visualising of driving on the right-hand-side.)

    Just back from first visit to Fiji.
    Great fun as 18 of us celebrated a friend’s 80th.
    The view out our window was of a opalm friged Fijian beach.
    A hard life but someone has to do it
