A Difficult Beginning

Well here it is a week before my trip and I’ve suddenly decided to take some friends advice and write a blog!  What do I know about writing a blog?  Absolutely nothing!!  I “accidentally” signed up for this one while trying to figure out how to write one and after a couple of hours reading I can still only figure out the basics.  Since I am no where near ready for my trip the basics it will have to be.  I can’t afford the time at this late stage to take a quick course in blog management. 

This is my first attempt at an actual post.  If this goes into the blog perhaps I’ll attempt another – otherwise this may be the shortest most uninformative blog in history!
