Story
Introduction
The iTinerant Explorer. After looking at my interests I believe this sums up what I like or would like to do in my spare time. I have always been fascinated by my family stories, love to travel and take photos of family, people and new places. In the past few years I have delved deeper into genealogy and started to write two blogs. 
One about the women in my family tree: http://womenfrommyfamilytree.blogspot.com.au/, the other has a more general, where I share  family stories, memories, photos http://familystoriesphotographsandmemories.blogspot.com.au/
