This is it! I just started a new blog. It's called Travel & Travelers and it's for my duck's website, Ouest-France.fr. I will talk about travels, of course. With, always, the desire to make you discover the world, here and elsewhere...
PRECISION - The first name of this blog for Ouest-France.fr, at its launch in April 2012, was Escapes. For reasons I don't want to detail here, I had to give it another name, during November 2012. So I changed the name here and renamed it Voyages & Voyageurs...
To tell the truth, I'm a little worried about getting into this. I'm not sure how I'm going to keep up with it, with TWO blogs.
Every evening, when I leave the office, it's the same thing: I notice, resigned, that the days are still only 24 hours long, and that it's already really late, so I'm not going to post a new article on the blog today... Blogging is a time-consuming activity and I don't have much time left when I'm done with my official work day.
But hey. My first "real" ticket is online. At last.
I give you the beginning of it below. It was inspired by an Icelandic volcano. As for the previous posts, which served as a test for the start-up phase, they may remind you of something...
The volcano that prevents planes from flying
Eyjafjallajökull, the glacier. Eyjafjöll, the volcano. What beautiful names. Mary Poppins could have invented them. This Icelandic volcano fascinates me. He spits a cloud of ash and smoke that prevents planes from flyingin northern Europe, since this Thursday, April 15. The eruption could continue for several weeks, even months!
Obviously, I would be more upset if I had a plane to catch. But here, I am amazed. Because the phenomenon makes me perceive, with an increased acuity, how our tiny lives are all linked on this pretty little ball that serves as our planet.
