A Recommendation…


I have stumbled upon and started to follow a blog with a series of posts based on letters sent home by a traveller in the 1960s.

It is really good and I think you might find it as interesting as I do.

This is how the blog introduces itself and it contains the link to the posts…


Published by Tone’s 1960s Travels

Tony is 79 and lives with his wife in South West England. Aged 26-29, he travelled the world with his friend Colin, cataloguing their adventures in his letters home – and he’s now revisiting those memories, 53 years later. Tiffany is Tony’s daughter, a features journalist who loves tales of true life. She’s set up this blog to share her father’s letters and photos. Jackie is Tony’s wife, who’s in charge of dictating the letters, using voice recognition software. Jackie has now been nicknamed ‘The Dictator.’ Tony, Tiffany and The Dictator welcome you to Tone’s 1960s Travels!

  3. Finally found a moment to take a quick look. Don’t know when I’ll find time, but it looks well worth a much closer look. Thanks for the recommend.

  4. Sounds like one worth checking out Andrew. Obviously some good sense of fun in the naming of the ‘dictator’.


  5. I keep meaning to jump on to say a big thank you for your recommendation Andrew, it really means a lot! 🙂


  6. PS and if you only ever read one post, make it the 15th May, as that letter is a real eye-opener…!
