To Blog or not to Blog, that is the question.

I have always focused on what I can’t do very well, rather than what I’m bloody good at. And this is a good part of the reason for not taking up blogging before now.

I am rubbish at spelling and grammar, but technically I am spot on (Being involved in I.T. & I.S. delivery for many years) Websites, Webhosting, SEO, Imagery, verbal diarrhoea, touring/travel but not very good a word craft. So why should this stop me from blogging? You tell me?

So apart from the fore mention issue, why don’t I get a real Job you may ask? I shall explain, with plenty of waffle!

The stay at home dad!

My previous career meant being away from home, and we did not start a family for me not to see and not to have a relationship with my three children. Nici my partner works less than a mile up the road, so I took the title of “Stay at home dad”. Throw a little bit of Down Syndrome into the mix (Jack our youngest child) and not working since 2013, plus the fact I am rapidly approaching the age of 50 does not make you very employable.

I needed to engineer an income that suited my family commitments, skills and what I ENJOY!

I have become a blogger!

From the age of 18 I have toured mainland Europe. Plains, Trains, Automobiles, Motorhomes, Motorcycles etc… Snowboarded, Cruised, walked, Mountain Biked stayed in Tents, Motorhomes, Chalets & mobile homes/static caravans.

And now I love to share these adventures with my family and friends.

When I am not travelling with my family

I am on the road with my wing man Johnathon McDonald. We have been friends for nearly 20 years. We have snowboarded, ridden motorcycles, driven & flown around Europe. (But now you will find us in a cafe having a sneaky beer)
