Welcome

Welcome to my blog! I never really thought I would create a blog untill hubby set up a family one. I started posting to it and was told off for "hijacking" it with my "craft rubbish!" And so the Nerdbird Blog was born! Not sure how much I'll post but I understand that this blogging lark can be addictive!

My freedom - Travel LO

Here is my travel LO and the bonus LO
Journaling reads:
Where were you born?
St Austell, Cornwall
Where have you lived?
We moved around a bit when I was young because of Dad being in the police. SO I have lived in Lanivit, Woodley, Tadley, Thatcham, Southampton, Reading and now Basingstoke.
What travel experiences do you remember from your childhood?
We always left in the early hours of the morning when it was still dark “to miss the traffic”! That early morning smell always makes me think of going on holiday.
Camping is the other big childhood memory. I love camping and have always wanted to make that part of my children’s memories too.
Where do you travel on a day to day basis?
Most of my day to day travel is taking the boys to nursery either walking or in the car (depending on the weather!) Then driving to the supermarket or doing other errands.
We also travel a lot to visit family and friends usual by car.
What modes of transportation do you use?
The most frequent is the car, then walking. Occasional we travel by Bus, train or taxi.
What place in the world has left an impression on your soul? How did this happen?
New York. I always wanted to go and I had a romantic idea of what it would be like (too many episodes of Friends I guess!)
Mum and I finally went in 2005 and had an amazing time, it was all I thought it would be and more. It is one of the only places in the world that I have been that I knew I wanted to go back to again and again. I went back with Charlie this year and I could easily go every year. I don’t know what it is about New York but I love it.
So given no obligation, no cost, no need to pack sensibly or be responsible for anything other than your own happiness, where would you travel right now?
Easy – New York!

New York is amazing, isn't it! I still need to go back again to see the bits I didn't see.
