So glad you have signed up to receive the For Random Learning Comes Newsletter! This is the eighty-fourth edition.

Previous editions can be found on the blog's Newsletter page. I send it out weekly, so if you don't get my email on Saturday morning, please let me know! (Check your junk and spam folders too.)
This week the newsletter is full of travel posts. The first three installments of my series Travelogue England April-May 2023, about the three-week trip I recently took to the South of England with my husband, are below.

Unfortunately, though they published consecutively on the blog, the list below shows them in reverse order. You will want to start with Introduction and then read Adventure and then read The Flight.

I don't pretend to be a proficient traveler or expert on any of the subjects discussed here. But I do enjoy traveling and haven't done it in a long time, so the event must be commemorated, even if at your expense.

Much of this writing is simply to preserve the memory for myself. But I hope you will get something out of it too.

Each segment is about 1,000-1200 words, so a bit longer than my regular fare. And after three posts I only got as far as the flight there. Expect tangential musings a-plenty!

Hope to have more by next newsletter. And future travel posts should have more photos!

Happy reading!
