I left work work almost three years ago now, I still work (nominally according to my husband) but I haven't done the work I set out to do, which was to become a travel blogger.
I have not written a single thing, other than a complaint to the BBC, a letter to my MP ( which I have still to finish) and about 50 birthday cards. I have continued to twitter though and have now grown my follower list to 18.3K. Husband thinks I like my Twitter friends more than him...
So I opened my @atravellingc account on the 18th March 2015. I can’t claim to be an absolute twitter novice as I do have another account – EbolaUK@heidiEVD – covering Ebola and Natural Disasters, however I had mainly used this account for following news/current issues, for retweeting and favs. I hadn’t quite got brave enough to make comments, join in conversations etc. I’d learned what a hashtag was and how to tag others, but that was about it! I am an absolute novice at blogging though!
Husband and me had been relaxing all morning by the pool on Friday morning, away from every other living being, minding our own business, as were the other pool users. There were a couple of other people at the pool, well spread out, lots of space and the vast majority of sunbeds were unoccupied - definitely masses of space.
I was swimming in the lovely pool, or wallowing as husband likes to say. He was laid sunbathing.
We all travelled together by train across Thailand to cross the land border into Cambodia, all 6 of us. Me, my husband, daughters No:1,2,4,5. The tales are all true about the road! Or they were then.

The atrocities carried out here are unthinkable, until you're faced with them. Not a cheery place to visit - but we did. Here are a few photos while I write the post!
