Writing and other difficulties in communicating in foreign languages

When I started this blog, almost four months ago, I was really excited about it. I thought it would be an easy thing to do and that people were gonna start reading it and sharing it really fast. Turns out I was wrong. First of all, English is not my mother language an even though I’ve been learning it and speaking it for a long time I’ve realized that I actually have a lot of issues (on grammar and spelling) when trying to  express my thoughts in written.  I guess I was a little presumptuous about my English skills, so when I read my first article published in Travelicious and realized how bad written it was, I felt embarrassed and I quit my blog.

Today,  after giving it a lot of thought, I’ve decided to start blogging again. My writing skills won’t get any better if I just stop practicing and I’ve never thought of myself as a quitter. So, I will begin to post about my trips, even if it takes a while for people to read my blog and even I make mistakes while doing it. Please forgive me if you find a lot of them.

If you are a wanderer, like I am, I hope this blog is useful for you.
