Just as a reference point I just made my 1,700th post on this blog right here on this wine. I started this blog in July 2010 as an answer to a request from a few friends who wanted the details of my trip to South Africa for the 2010 World Cup. I felt a blog format was the easiest way to chronicle those travels over a 17 day period. My passions in life have always been travel, wine and food. Three things that go so beautifully together.

Happy Third Anniversary

Wow. How time flies when you’re having fun, huh? I’ve been doing this now for three years. So far I’ve made 857 posts to this blog including this one which isn’t quite one per day but it’s close enough to seem like it is. There have been 306 comments posted to date so a little over a third of the time I post something one of my readers is kind enough to let me know I’m not simply talking to the ether every day.
