Welcome to my index page for European destinations I have already prepared posts about!
So, maybe you’ve noticed that I do not have as many posts about European destinations as many other websites. There are a few reasons for that.
The first reason is that my site is fairly new. It is not because I am new to traveling and exploring places. In fact, I have been traveling extensively for 20 years now and I have accumulated a great wealth of memories, pictures, videos, extensive search notes before traveling and personal notes written during the trips!
I do not hesitate to call this—wealth, because this is how it feels to me.
My memories are also a source of great comfort to me, as they warm me up inside on the days I feel blue. Because, while I am leading a very exciting life of a digital nomad moving around at the moment, there is always a small element of sadness. Sadness that I move around alone, and I have no one around to share the admiration for the amazing scenery I see. Now, I didn’t say sadness about moving alone. I mentioned sadness at not being able to share! Those two are very different things!;)
That element of sadness is not strong enough to do something about the ‘solo’ traveler part!:). To be honest, there is absolutely definitely something nice about traveling solo. For starters- it’s just sooo peaceful! I’ve tried to cover that topic in my Why Travel Alone blog post. But this sadness is actually a great motivational force to figure out the ways to share that incredible beauty I see!
Because the things I see are greater than me and greater than the time: they are absolute Beauty. And I feel it’s my karma to share them with as many people as I can!:)
So, back to why I still don’t have that many posts (just yet!).
I’ve started blogging 2 years ago. The first year of that was definitely a learning curve!:) And I feel that I’ve learned A LOT! Because the most time-consuming part of blogging is not writing about things. This part is quick and easy. One also needs to do a lot of research to make sure the things one talks about are current. And let’s just say that I spend a huge chunk of my blogging time on the research checking fasts!.. and then re-checking again just to be sure?;)
So, blogging this way takes up a lot of time.
In addition, I put a great value on visuals, both pictures and videos. I video and picture record EVERYTHING I see during my travel explorations. I just want to have the ability to refresh my memory of the places I've visited here and there. I have such a vast library of the visual media that it’s becoming a full-time job to keep track of where what is (besides having to buy tons of storage space, both local and cloud space).
And I try to add as much of that visual media to my blog posts as my site speed allows. And that takes a long time to prepare.
So, there are some reasons why I still don’t have that many posts written and posted.
But, these 2 last years of extensive blogging practice are starting to pay off. I am finally becoming much faster in both researching, writing, preparing my media and editing my website.
So, I am on an accelerated schedule of posting lately, and I am planning to post a great number of articles, because I want to share all my knowledge!
My knowledge and research saved me a tremendous amount of money and nerve cells wasted on stressful trips and situations! It would please me to know my knowledge could help someone else! Maybe you?
Anyway, I just wanted to address this. I am very excited you are checking out my blog! Please, come back again to see my newer posts! 😊
