It is 2:27 am and I’m still up. For the past couple of hours, I’ve been reading other people’s travel blogs I discovered from Twitter.
You see, I just joined Twitter a week ago. I had been meaning to all this time, but never really found a need for it. Besides, I was addicted enough to Facebook that I was hesitant because I heard that Twitter was worse. It really wasn’t until about a week ago when I saw how handy Twitter was, as Brian kept me abreast with all the Egypt and Libya news by reading the live feed and links on Twitter (he doesn’t Tweet by the way, he only reads the feeds). So, in order to stop feeling like a dinosaur, I decided to get with the Information Age and discover the real magic that Twitter involves.
It sure is eye-opening! All of a sudden, this new world of family travelers has opened up to me. There is a growing number of families out there who are travelling long-term!! I have to laugh because all this time, I’ve been putting off working on my links page because most of the RTW families I followed these past two years have now completed their RTW trips. Most of the blogs I read while preparing for our travels only lasted about a year.
Talk about discoveries! There is a vibrant community out there of families like us. To quote my beloved Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables (yes, I am a Canadian Girl!), “Kindred Spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world!”
Aaaaahhh, the beauty of social media. Really humbles me quite a bit. I’ve learned a lot these past months by blogging. I’m still trying to finesse my way around my blog posts. My learning curve has been steep to say the least.
Here I was, so concerned about wanting to learn how to speak French fluently, when the language of social media is what I should be educating myself on. Life is good! But tonight, I feel like a dinosaur!
