There is at least one question you might be wondering about

Before I finally decided to write the first chapter of our blog, I spent a bit of time thinking it through and in particular, I wanted to make sure the structure and sequence of the chapters are right. What I mean is, I wanted to start by introducing the idea behind our trip and what it is we are actually thinking of doing, giving you chance to make-up your own mind if our journey might be interesting enough for you to follow, before setting off on a tangent and loosing you somewhere in the process of writing random stuff about random people. Well, it seems I managed that beautifuly, not.
To be fair, I did tell you a bit about what we want to do and why our blog is hopefully worth reading. Although I might have got tiny bit carried away telling you about The Duke and myself. So let us make-up for it. In the next chapters, we will try to tell you a bit more about why, how, where, when and what we want to do, and how far down the line of actually doing it we are.
But before we start, you are probably dying to know why is The Duke, called The Duke. I give you some options:
a) It is his real name (I don’t think so)
b) He is from an old aristocratic family and although his old family estates are nowhere near as extensive as they used to be, the family still uses the title (I should be so lucky)
c) His real name is often pronounced ‘dick’ and I wanted to be nice to him….
And the winner is………. Although I cannot take full credit for this nickname, when living in the UK, one of his junior team members started using it and I think it is rather fitting. So here you go.
Side note: I am getting addicted to blogging and imagine it is even more fun knowing, there are people out there who take time to read our rambles. So please let us know if you like what you read and feel free to recommend our blog to others. We also added our blog to a Blog Catalog site so keep the comments comming ...
