Hi, thanks for checking out my blog, here is a little bit about me and my life.
My name is Joan and I live in Cork, Ireland. For about 27 years of my life I lived in Zimbabwe, and I have four children who were born there, and are now scattered all over – Dubai, Zimbabwe, Germany and London (at the moment). While I miss not having some of the family living with me, I have lots of places to visit and as I now have four grandchildren, 3 in Frankfurt and 1 in Harare, there is even more of an attraction to go travelling! Its also great to look forward to them ‘coming home to Mom’ even if its only for a short while.
After working in office environments all my life. I retired at the end of 2012, and while thinking about some of the things to do to with my free time, my daughter suggested I start a blog, and I thought ‘A blog, whats that?’, but I started off, muddled my way through the confusion of unfamiliar posting, and adding links, and attaching photos, previewing and publishing. How exciting it was to get my first followers, and to get to know people from all parts of the world. I am now into my fourth year of blogging and enjoying the friends I have made along the way, and the new ones just around the corner.
Apart from travelling, I am a member of a hillwalking club, and try to get out on the hills (and smaller mountains) every week. I also took up golf when I retired, and enjoy the new friends I have made through these activities.
I look forward to seeing new places and friends this year, and taking some interesting photos along the way to share on my blog.
