Travelling, travelling…

Hi everyone!

This is going to be more like a letter than a blog…no pictures because I’m travelling in Texas at the moment and don’t have my own lap top with me.  However, I am taking photographs, and will let you see them next month, on 10th April. Meanwhile you’ll just have to imagine it. I flew to Houston, and have ridden the Greyhound bus to Austin. Not so many people travel this way in the US these days, but when I was a student it was a very cool way to travel all over the country.

Now I’m in a friend’s house in Austin, writing this while she’s gone for her riding lesson. It’s hot here, and I’m listening to bird songs that I don’t recognise. Next week I’ll be taking a train journey over the prairies and later I’ll fly to San Francisco, staying in an old house overlooking the bay. There are so many treats to come!

I won’t forget to keep taking pictures and will share the best with you. I have lots of Girls Heart Books bookmarks with me, and will be handing them out in bookshops and to friends. I wonder if we’ll find we have some new friends on GHB by the time I get home?

See you in April!

  2. have a great time! One of my favourite boils (small steps, sequel to holes by Louis Sachar) is set in Austin. It sounds really nice!

  3. Hope you have a wonderful time!
    And I can’t wait to see the pictures!
    Oh-I’ve just realized, Rick Riordan used to teach in San Francisco and in Texas! But he lives in San Antonio now so…
