Hello and welcome! My name is Conrad (not a traditional Scottish name, of course), but inspired by the marriage of Conrad Hilton to Elizabeth Taylor around the time of my birth. So it goes. Well, I’ve wandered far from my birthplace of Glasgow, Scotland. I grew up in England and emigrated with my family to the US in the mid 70s. I sojourned for a while in South Florida before finding my way to Georgia where I have resided since 1980. My wife and I have been married since 1980. We have two grown children, two beagles and a bassett. We love to travel whenever possible and visit new places. I also love books and love to read so the idea for this blog is to share insights from my travels in the real world and in the world of literature. I hope that you might find something of interest.
