New Places To Lose Myself

There are moments when I check out Freshly Pressed on WordPress.  Granted, this doesn’t happen often, but when I am able to do it, I nearly always find something new to marvel in.  When lucky, I find a few blogs that I can lose myself in.  The next thing I know, four hours have disappeared, never to be regained.  My advice: visit Freshly Pressed with caution.

My first treat today was Freshly Pressed on Monday, April 30. The title of the post, Walked the Walk and the picture that accompanied it caught my eye and I bit. When I arrived at Calliope’s Tablet, I was pleasantly surprised.  First, she’s talking about walking around a city I am familiar with.  Next, I just found her blog and it’s content to be a delight. She writes about writing and creativity.  I can’t get enough of that.  Hope you’ll check it out.

The other treat, another creative blog type, I found because the post that was Freshly Pressed was all about bike touring, something I am contemplating starting up as my kids get older and leave home.  Actually, my son is pushing me to do this with him.  He loves camping, we both love cycling and he agreed to deal with setting up the tents and taking them down.  That’s all it took.  I’m all in.  Now all we have to do is acquire some gear.  While I’m saving up pennies to do that, I’m going to check out LizardArtworks and read her post about Biking From Monterey to SLO, so I can be prepared when the time comes.

I hope you’ll go visit these two fun finds.

About Miz Insomniac

Usually, it's the kids who grow up and leave home, but Miz Insomniac switched it up. When her kids grew up she decided to make her dreams come true so she flew the nest. After making 12 trips across the pond and back to Europe, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East in 2014-15, Miz Insomniac now qualifies as a world traveler. She hasn't quite mastered the fine art of traveling light, but she knows how to manipulate travel plans to avoid missed flights and jet lag. A former hopeless romantic turned realist, she's stateside now reinventing her life in a new city, with new opportunities, and all the challenges that come with leaving a career, traveling abroad for a year, and then returning to a world that's nothing like she left it. Her overseas travel is by no means over, it's just not as frequent. She's different now, but remains a night owl. She writes when she should be sleeping...and while you probably are.
