December 13th is a special day for me as it marks the anniversary of this blog: Travel – Moments in Time was launched on December 13th 2009 and it has been a wonderful journey ever since. I always loved to write and I always loved to travel. These two combined – a true pleasure.
Looking back on the articles I wrote for this blog, I realize I have many more stories to tell, many more wonderful places I visited to present and some opinion articles to share with you. I hope you will like them all, as I hope you like the articles published so far here.

I am convinced that this blog enriched me: it offered the opportunity to meet – online or in real life – some really wonderful and interesting people, travelers. Some became my friends, and I am so proud to be able to say that.
I also discovered many interesting and wonderful travel blogs that I am now reading, and great travelers that I am following online on my social media accounts.
Traveling offers, sometimes, a different perspective on things, countries, people. Discovering history, cultures, meeting local people – it’s all part of the wonderful process of traveling from place to place.
I admit I am not a nomad: I do have a home, one that I longed for all my life 🙂 – and I like to have a “base”. But I also like to take advantage of every moment spent on the road. I have a long-long list of places I want to visit, and I also let myself be surprised of places not included in a given itinerary, cities or countries that I just “end up” visiting one way or another. I love a good surprise 😉 (and I am actually planning a post on traveling, plans and expectations.)
But today I am happy: happy to reach the 5 years milestone, happy to see the way this blog evolved, happy to look at all the post I published, and happy thinking of all my travel friends this blog got to me!
So this is for you: thank you for visiting this blog, for reading and sharing the articles you find interesting. Thank you for this long trip – and to many, many more years, Travel – Moments in Time!
Happy blog anniversary, Travel – Moments in Time! Come, share a glass of champagne with me 🙂 _ even if it is a virtual one! Cheers!
