If you’re wondering where the posts have disappeared to for the last, oh, year… it’s because I’ve been traveling around the world and blogging over at http://www.thebombsurf.com/swindler – go and check it out.
Basically, I won a year’s round the world surf trip courtesy of theBOMBsurf.com and a host of sponsors that include RVCA, Skullcandy, True Blue Travel, Digicape, Nikon, Spider Surfboards, Ocean Minded and Island Tribe. All these wonderful people kitted me out with everything I needed to travel and document my year, from clothes to digital camera to headphones to shoes and even a MacBook and iPhone 4.
I’ve just arrived back in London after leaving at the start of the year, and, wow, what an incredible journey it’s been. The whole trip is documented on the site, including archives from the very first post.
Now that I’m back in the UK and back on regular and reliable (mostly) Internet access, it’s time to catch up with Twitter (I’ve been using the @surfswindler account almost exclusively this year) and get @soundinterest going again. Probably with a slight change of direction, though, as it’s soon going to be time to expand this blog into a more significant presence on the web. But more on that another time.
