I’m getting about seven likes per post at the moment but I’m hoping it will slowly creep upwards if I hold my nerve! Thankfully, as the blog is a family project, sharing my dad’s letters from his world travels in the 60s, it’s a genuine labour of love which is an incredible process for all of us – and which is giving him (and all of us) such pleasure to revisit so many amazing memories. So even if few others find it, we’ll still love making it!
