Going on an Adventure

“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it’s very difficult to find anyone. I should think so – in these parts!  We are plain, quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things!  Make you late for dinner.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit


There are many more rivers to explore and many miles to wander in this beautiful world.  We have not finished our river journeys. There is Julius Caesar’s Rubicon, the Mekong River, one of the great rivers of SE Asia, and the legendary Amazon River that carries more water than any other river in the world.

For now, I am taking a couple of weeks to share an adventure with my husband and son.   I am uncertain whether I will be able to access the internet on a regular basis, even though I am equipped with a new iPhone that I know very little about.  I confess that I have not attained the level of proficiency to access WordPress.  I am going to use this time to stretch my knowledge of technology.

We are all on a remarkable adventure, we call life.  Over the past months, I have come to realize that we may be on opposite sides of the world, yet we are travelling the same path.

Safe travels….and remember….

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door.  You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

    • I am learning to speak gently to my new phone! They call them smart phones – maybe the “smartness” will transfer to me. I will have a full progress report! Thank you for your encouragement!!!


  1. We will always walk together in spirit wherever we each may be in the world. Have a lovely break with your husband and son, dear Rebecca. Blessings for safe travels. ♥


    • Well said – “we always walk together…” I am a homebody at heart, and yet, home will always be where there are family and friends. Thank you for your blessings for safe travels. So glad that we are connected!!!


  2. Great advice from Tolkien, Rebecca with which to start your vacation, and voyage of adventure. May you be showered with sunshine, pardon the pun, hard to resist, but said with the best of intentions, and so as to start with a little chuckle. Enjoy, dear friend ! See you in a couple of weeks. JJ


    • You have a wonderful way with words. I’m going river hunting….stay tuned. 😆

  3. Hi Rebecca: Have a great vacation! Where are you going? Let me go and find you, ha ha. Travel safe and have fun!

    I will miss you and your posts! I always have something to learn from you every day!

    Enjoy your trip…perhaps we will see you somewhere. No WP, no internet….you would love it!



    • Thank you so much – I am one of the hesitant adventurers, very much like Bilbo Baggins. And yet…the world awaits us! And that gives me comfort.

  4. I started posting to WordPress using the iPhone before I did it directly from my computer. I must say it isn’t as intuitive, but it is possible to stay in touch that way. Just keep things simple, and you will be fine. We’ll be anxious to see what you are seeing, so don’t be shy about trying it out. Give it a whirl before you leave home, so you can do it in a relaxed atmosphere to get the hang of it. Bon Voyage! ;->


    • You have inspired me, Adin! You keep on line with all of your travelling adventures – so I’m thinking that it may be possible for me, too!!! There is always something new to learn along the way….


  5. Have a wonderful trip. I know you will be a fearless flyer in the end. And the worpress app is very easy to use for posting on the go. You’ll be able to keep track of all of us too 🙂


  6. I want to get a I-phone but I do not now how to use it is really funny, have a great time and is always good to take time off.

    • Thank you! Our adventures have started early in the morning and ended well into the evening! I have wanted to blog as I go but I am in and out of WIFI. Your visits are very much appreciated.
