Travel Jottings

My wanderings are urban as well as rural, and several have taken me overseas around Europe and to North America. All have needed at least some planning: knowing what to see and where to stay remain ever present needs. That and remaining ever open to new possibilities have contributed to what you find here. Everything builds up over time, and I hope that the horizons continue expanding to mean that I can continue to share new things with you here.


Bitterroot Mountains, Montana, U.S.A.

The early months of 2020 were spent reading guidebooks as part of an effort to pick out new North American travel destinations. The subsequent onset of a global pandemic clearly has put those on hold. Nevertheless, I still fancy the prospect of a visit to Glacier National Park sometime, but there is more to Montana than even that. To get something out there in advance of creating an article like others that you find on here, this collection of websites is presented. For now, we might be limited to dreaming, but that should change some time and extra writing could appear here in time too.
