When I first started this blog it was with the intention of motivating and exciting others to explore more of Scotland and help them discover those inspirational places and experiences that would provide special moments and memories.
It was about sharing my own knowledge and discoveries that I felt worthy of recommending to others, along with practical information on how to visit and any other tips I picked up along the way. In essence I aimed to provide an informative and inspiring travel blog.
This involves constantly seeking out things that are special, hidden or unique in my attempt to find the best that Scotland has to offer. I am always on the look out for not just the best but the extra special, the places and experiences that don't just offer special memories but those elusive 'once in a lifetime' moments.
When I saw an advert to apply to be a blogger for Glasgow Commonwealth Games I couldn't think of a more fitting event to write about and share with the world and immediately filled in my details and hoped for the best.
A couple of months passed by with no word and then suddenly my Inbox lit up with a #Team14 reply and I was over the moon that I had been successful!
Yes, I am now officially part of #Team14, 1 of 14 fellow bloggers chosen to write about the Glasgow 2014 XX Commonwealth Games. There are a number of different topics that will be blogged about and I have been assigned Events and Glasgow/Scotland which compliment what I do already. Other topics include the baton relay, sport and lifestyle.
Blogging about such a big Scottish occasion is an honour in itself but as a proud Glaswegian I feel privileged to have the opportunity to write about a major worldwide event in my own city.
The Games take place from 23rd July - 3rd August 2014 and I hope you will be inspired to travel along with me and share this once in a lifetime Scottish journey.
I look forward to writing some exciting blog posts for you and you can also follow updates on my social media. Along with my fellow bloggers I will be using #Team14 for Commonwealth Games related tweets. On my blog all related posts will be under the category Commonwealth Games.
