A few years ago, with kids all gainfully employed 20-somethings, I, the Hairy1, and my wife who can be Mrs Hairy1 for this story, decided that a bit of travel was in order. A couple of trips around some interesting UK spots (we live in the UK) were soon followed by a few getaways to Greek Islands, Spain and a couple of Southern African locations, close to our original Zimbabwean home. Now you must understand that we are not “fat cats”, just an older couple working the 9 to 5 and making the best of our leave time. The travel bug has bit!!
Current goal: Lose the 9 to 5 and gain the “Let’s go today”.
See more about my 9 to 5 on the Information Technology page.
Of course I have a long term addiction to cameras and photography. Somehow there has always been a camera handy. Like any photographer I want you to see my photos. So the Travels of the Hairy 1 was born as a place to show off my pictures and talk about our travels, be they short or long trips. Of course I’m still learning this blogging thing!
And “The Hairy 1”? A friend of my kids, years ago, called me that because of my mass of black hair and beard. Alas, what’s left is now more silver than black. But the label remains.
And don’t forget the logo – a green acacia from our native Zimbabwe. An “umbrella tree”. The idea: sitting comfortably in its shade watching the world go by. In time …
“Life is a journey. Travel safe, take a camera, and always eat well” – the Hairy 1.
