Happy spring, dearest fellow travelers. For those of us in the northern hemisphere, here’s to longer days and budding greenery all around. Spring came very early for me this year, because England has a more moderate climate than the American Midwest, so in late February temperatures climbed up, trees started putting out little hopeful leaves, and daffodils cropped up en masse in parks and gardens across London. Of course, the flip side of a temperate climate means that now it’s still about that same temperature instead of getting any warmer, and in a few months I’ll be wondering if summer is a thing that actually happens here. But for now, spring!
I’ll be living in London for at least a year, and I’m going to take advantage of that fact as much as I can. Every month, I’m going to at least two new places in London I’ve never been before. Also, every month I’m going to at least one new place outside of London I’ve never been before. I will also try to get to some other European locations as well.
I’ve been busy with a lot of freelance projects the last few months, which is why the writing part of Stowaway has been so light. But now I’ve finished some of those and hope to get back into the swing of things with writing up my travels. I know I still have a few places from Europe 2013 (!) to cover, and much of South America 2014, and of course what I’ve been up to while in England.
So there’s much to do and time enough to do it in. Please continue to comment, and share on Facebook and Twitter (I’m @LisaStowaway). And if you’re coming through London, let me know–we can meet for a pint or a cup of tea.
