Head-For-The-Hills, Back in Town

After a five-month blogging hiatus, it’s good to be back!

It was my 2013 New Years Resolution to get back into blogging regularly, but I wasn’t really sure where to start. Head-For-The-Hills was conceived as a travel blog, but now I’m back home in Australia (more on that in future posts) and trying to live in the “real world” again. Where did that leave me?

I started to think about possible blog posts and realised that I’m still a traveller a heart, even though I’m not on the road. My current challenge (and one I’m sure is shared by everyone who spends an extended period overseas) is how to retain that backpacker spirit of freedom, adventure, curiosity, and spontaneity once home. This will be a major blog theme this year.

I also have a couple of residual travel stories to write-up from my trip last year, so expect to see some back-dated posts this month!

Finally, in an effort to improve my (very amateur) photography skills, I’m starting a project I like to call “2013 in pictures.” Every day this year I’m going to take a photo that encapsulates something significant that happened or my feeling about the day. I’m looking forward to seeing how the year pans out (photos posted monthly).

I’d leave to hear about your blogging resolutions for 2013. Feel free to leave a comment!

Have a great 2013!

  1. […] This is partly for photography practice, but mostly it’s to help me live my life in a more mindful way, to notice and appreciate my surroundings, and to see the amazing city of Melbourne through the eyes of a tourist (more on this concept in a earlier blog post). […]
