Celebrating 500 Travel Reports!

Travel with Leighton Literature travel reports short stories album reviews.

Today I published my 500th travel report with my article on Tooting Bec Common in London. This is cause for celebration because a) five hundred is a sexy number and b) I never thought I’d get this far! Now I kinda like the sound of 1000. 

These articles of mine have evolved over time from simple photo sharing (“Top 5 photos”) to more structured location descriptions (“My 5…”) and now the expansive travel report format of today. My first travel report came out in March 2016 with a look back at two old trips to Vienna. Three and a half years later and I’ve thrown out 499 more from across 32 countries. Click here for the global overview!

My first travel report posted In March 2016. Vienna, October 2002.

Having finally made the transition into full time travel blogging, I’ve now committed to publishing a new travel report every day! And with hundreds of unpublished locations still clogging up my photo folders, there seems to be no end in sight. Moreover, I’m now in the midst of reformatting my entire site for the third time *faceplam*. Luckily, family time in the gorgeous locales of rural Scotland is just about the most idyllic place to stop, take a deep breath and hunker down.

Thanks for reading!

      Thanks Mary, I’d say dive in, but I’m guessing you’ve already read most of it!
