Welcome to ‘You’re in a Foreign Country Now’. You could be excused for thinking that this site is a travel diary, especially as the first posts will be about travels in Europe over Christmas and New Year 2013 – 2014. But in time, I plan to write about more metaphorical ‘foreign countries’; history, life writing, archives – places where, as L. P. Hartley said ‘they do things differently’.
The title and photo are a tribute to my Dad, John Salmond, from whom I learned the value of history and story telling, and with whom my husband, children, brothers, sister and I had numerous hilarious adventures in foreign countries.
Have a fabulous trip Leigh and Nik! Looking forward to seeing lots of photos and reading about your adventures.
Thanks Peta! We’ll muddle our way through adding new content and photos. I’ll make sure to post on Facebook as well! Merry Xmas!
