Providence, RI

“Where are you going next?”
“Providence, Rhode Island.”

With one exception, every person I said that to made a face that meant ‘ew, why would you want to go there?’

So I wasn’t expecting to like Providence, which was fine because I wasn’t planning to explore it. I’d be arriving late Saturday night and going straight to bed, then working until I got into a cab to go back to the airport on Wednesday afternoon. Work was a conference, and I was staying in the conference hotel, so I’d planned to just spend the whole time in that single building.  Continue reading “Providence, RI”

I’d forgotten how much I love it here

Hello, I’m in South Carolina, as you may have guessed from my constant ecstatic updates. Actually, since I queue up blog posts two weeks in advance, by the time this is posted I’ll be in the air on my way home again, mourning the lack of beaches and palm trees and humidity.

I have been a total idiot but luckily this month’s travel link up is here to make me feel better

On Saturday I went for dinner with Emma and Becca, and once we’d Instagrammed our food we started talking about blogging, because even offline life is lived semi-online in 2017.

Emma mentioned the Travel Link Up, which is this brilliant thing that a load of people do each month, where there’s a specific topic chosen and then everyone writes a blog post about it, and then they all go and comment on each other’s posts, and it’s basically a big travel-related blog love-in.

I’ve been meaning to participate for aaaages but I’m rubbish at getting my act together and doing it.

But this month, it’s about fucking things up, and we all know that’s one of my fortes. So, here goes.
