The last time I set foot in an airport or an aircraft was over 7 months ago and, by quite a margin, this has been the longest period of time in which I haven't traveled in almost 20 years. With the world in the state that it's in right now, I'm still not ready to travel abroad for fun or for the blog, but I definitely need a break from work and my daily routine so it's time for a staycation of sorts.
Regular readers may remember that each summer I fly out to the Mediterranean to help out a friend who’s in the middle of a long rebuilding project and, once again, that’s where I am right now. It's fantastic. I'm approximately 2,500 feet up a mountain with great weather, beautiful views, and great food (it's hard to bead good Mediterranean food).
I'm more than a little aware that from the outside it can appear as if all the traveling I do is a recipe for a fantastic lifestyle and that my life is essentially a never-ending carousel of premium cabin luxury and hotel room upgrades....but that's not really how things are.
Some you may have noticed that there weren't any posts on Traveling For Miles on Thursday and Friday last week and, as I've had a few emails asking what's up, I thought I'd quickly explain what I've been doing and the reason for a few days silence on the blog.
If you've had your morning cup of coffee before visiting Traveling For Miles this morning you may have noticed a small new floating link on the bottom right of every page. It's a link with a logo that I'm very proud to have on the site because it shows that Traveling For Miles is now part of the BoardingArea family of blogs.
Over the past few weeks I've been in the blissful position of having little to no internet access whatsoever which is why there have been comparatively few posts appearing on Traveling For Miles (and no posts since August 9th).
Regular readers may remember that I occasionally fly out to the Mediterranean to help out a friend who’s in the middle of a long rebuilding project and, as it happens, that’s where I am right now.
I've been meaning to give Traveling For Miles a new look for some time but I've never really had the time to keep the site running and do the wholesale changes TFM actually needed. Recently it became obvious that I would never have enough time to do both so I decided to put TFM on a temporary hiatus and get down to changing a lot of things I wanted to change.
Earlier today a number of our subscribers will have received a Traveling For Miles email which contained links to posts that were nothing short...
For most of this week I'm going to be away from home and without regular access to the internet. I may be able to get the occasional email when I find cell phone service but internet access is going to be almost non existent and, even if I do find a connection, it will almost certainly only offer speeds last seen in the 1990's. I can't wait!
