This article first appeared elsewhere on February 28, 2008. What was true then is most likely not true today when I reposted it here.
Comment: Presumptuous? Oh, yes! But such a lifestyle would have needed some form of income and I always did fancy writing a book. The invitation stands.
Welcome to the Two Snails blog. Occasional daily diaries will appear in the blog. More thought-out summary articles will appear from time to time. The planning stage is a long one – once the initial excitement is moderated posts will most likely be infrequent, as we mark time. Once the adventure begins to loom, posts will become a more regular feature. After the Snails embark on their new life, the blog will become a regular daily diary of all that is new and strange, beautiful or striking, impressive and/or scary. We hope to show you all the wondrous things that we meet upon the way, describing them in words and illustrating the text with photographs, drawings and paintings. There will be scenic views, interesting characters, strange customs, fine food and wine – and pet antics, of course! Certainly there will be misadventures to report but trauma can be interesting too. Above all, the Snails will endeavour to make their adventure as fascinating to the vicarious reader as it is for themselves. Publication offers will be very much welcomed. Please use the Contact form.
