Award time!

Standard

This acknowledgment has been long overdue: many thanks to campervan adventurer Vicky and travel-loving Sunshine for nominating me to receive the Versatile Blogger Award, and to Sheila from Cape Cod for nominating me for the Awesome Blog Content (ABC) Award! It’s a very gratifying feeling to know that when you post something on your blog somebody out there is actually reading – and enjoying – what you write =)
