Thank You For An Amazing Year!

I wouldn’t be here if not for the travel editor of our local daily, who edited butchered my article to accommodate his own piece in a weekend supplement.

That decapitated article led to the birth of ‘The Urge To Wander’, exactly a year ago today. The start of an uncharacteristically unplanned journey, that I half expected to derail along the way.

But here I am, a year later. With a whole lot more to share.

A preview

I know you have had a surfeit of reviews over the past couple of weeks, so I won’t add to your agony with more stats and links to past posts. Or future plans for that matter.

All I want to say is that I have enjoyed every minute of the journey. And the most rewarding part has been connecting with the wonderful community we have here.

And another!

You my virtual friends, are the reason this has been worthwhile. And I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

And on this anniversary, I acknowledge your generosity and kindness, by setting up a special page here, to showcase all the awards you have showered me with – over 90 to date! I am touched and honoured, and wish I could find enough time to acknowledge each of them individually.

Thank you once again for an amazing year!
