When I first started blogging, I joined such a special little community. This was before it became such a business. Most of us were just finding our way and had no idea what SEO, DA or MOZ meant. Follow links and Google Analytics meant nothing. Just pick a pretty template, start writing and connecting. We all had a blog roll in our sidebar featuring our favorite blogger friends. We sent each other awards and shared guests posts. All without expecting a fee. It seemed so much more interactive than now. I miss those days, don't you? Linkys, blogs hops and questionnaires. There was one called "Six Things About Me" that made the rounds. I think because of the personal nature, it's still one of my most read posts. I revisited it recently and decided to do a little update.

Not all city breaks require a trip to the airport, right? Sometimes a road trip is in order and England has plenty to see and do. Gloucester offers a cathedral, a city center and a revitalized Victorian port to explore. It's only a 2.5 hour drive from London so it's an easy one. Gloucester is in Gloucestershire, neither of which is pronounced like it looks. Kind of like Worcestershire sauce. It's "glaw-ster" and the county is pronounced kind of like "glaw-sta-sher". Matt will probably tell me this is still completely wrong because of the American accent in the mix, but it's close enough.

Look! It's a Wee Coo! They are adorable and I must have one. It will fit in perfectly with my dream menagerie that includes a hippo, giraffe and camel. Matt continues to tell me NO, but I think I'm wearing him down. Someday. This gorgeous Highland Cow was spotted as we explored the area around Oban, Scotland. Scotland continues to be a top three favorite destinations for me. Everything about it is perfect including these shaggy beasts.
