Pretty much all books, history, science, civil rights, anime, travel, or, you know, baby animals.
I had a fantastic time touring Santiago, Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales, and the fjords and glaciers of Chile; Torres del Paine National Park and Buenos Aires in Argentina; and Iguassu Falls, from both the Argentinian and the Brazilian sides. Took many, many photos (and got story ideas), but I like this one best, taken by fellow tour member PC. Like Elsa! Except, well, the cold does bother me a little.
I thought about writing blogposts about each leg of the trip, but on the way home I caught a cold so wicked it looks like I got punched in the eye, so I’ve been sleeping a lot instead. Might settle for a photo album; not sure the timing now that the Holidays are upon us. But I did write about Napoleon on England’s shores for the December blog party over at Deanna Raybourn’s site this week. She writes cool travel stories, some set in the 1920s–very fun!–and is playing the gracious hostess to more than two dozen fellow historical and adventure writers. Already I have a list of their books to check out this year, and the month is only half over.
Now I'm thinking I'll use the photos I took on vacation as writing prompts for January; if at the end of the month I have something worth making into a real story, then huzzah! If not, practice is always good ;-)
