At the start of the year I posted saying that I had been a bit quiet blog-wise due to having moved house and then, almost immediately afterwards heading away to Iceland for a break.
Not one to recycle old excuses, but apologies to everyone for my lax blog rate and dearth of comments on other sites of late. We all go through periods when a blog can feel more like a job than anything else and I’d be lying if I said that hadn’t played a part of late.
A crazy work schedule over the past 4-6 months hasn’t helped as I’ve often been too tired or had no time to even watch movies, let alone write about them.
By way of a ‘rest’, my other half and I are heading to Nepal for three weeks; most of which will be taken up with trekking through the Himalayas, reaching heights of over 5,000m! Here’s hoping altitude sickness doesn’t rear its ugly head!
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for continuing to be a splendid community of good folks – I speak for many I’m sure when I say that it’s my fellow bloggers who really make this whole thing worthwhile.
To my American friends, may I wish you an early Happy Thanksgiving. With the way the world has turned over this past year, what with the disastrous Brexit vote (#notinmyname), atrocities too numerous to mention and the pièce de résistance that is Trump’s election, we need to keep our friends and family close and be thankful for the little things.
Photos of my trip will follow, but in the meantime stay well.
Enjoy your trip!
Cheers buddy! Looking forward to it!
No worries, my friend. Hope you have great, and safe, trip, Mark. 🙂
Ah, thanks mate. Hope all is well with you.
Enjoy your trip. Sounds like a really big adventure. And I must apologise for my absence on your blog.
Don’t mention it buddy, I’ve not put that much on there recently which is my bad.
We all get busy at times man.
Not jealous of your Nepal trip at all. Nope, just purely happy for you.
Ha ha, thanks Kelly. Does it mak it any better to say that I had an AMAZING TIME and loved every minute of it?
I can’t see where you’d think that would make it any better. No, seriously, I’m glad you had an Amazing time. No, seriously, I’m not. No, seriously, I am. No…I must go now. Air must be punched in envious frustration 🙂
Ha, sorry! Will be uploading photos very shortly just to rub it in…
I hope all goes well. And I speak for all of America when I say we’re sorry for Trump.
Thank you buddy – not long returned and, apart from the jet lag, had a fantastic time. I’m sorry for Trump too; I hope things in the US aren’t too depressing/crazy at the moment.
Have a wonderful time, Mark! The Himalayas, wow, that sounds like a great adventure, my hubby and I just came back from Zion National Park too last week, and I’m currently taking a wee blogging break as well. Have a great rest of the year and God bless!
Thanks Ruth! I’ve not long returned and had an amazing time. Once-in-a-lifetime trip if I’m honest. Hope you had a great time at Zion National Park!
It was pretty amazing. Not long returned and will be uploading photos shortly 🙂
Hope you have a fantastic trip Mark, you certainly deserve it! I think I speak for several when I say I look forward to seeing a few photos from Venezuela! That sounds like a total blast. Be well my friend and happy holidays to you and yours!
* the Himalayas, not Venezuela . . . durrrrrrrrr
Cheers mate! Have now arrived home and been going through my photos – will be uploading something shortly. All I’ll say is… WHAT A TRIP! Loved it! You’d absolutely love it too mate.
I’m jealous! Pictures? What an adventure, I’m sure.
