Today it’s exactly one year since we started our blog Samandthedunes.com and it has been a fantastic year full of traveling, eating and writing. We started out just for fun but since we got so much wonderful feedback from you, readers, we started to take our blogging more and more seriously. As of today we have published 170 posts and looking back we can see that (at least) we had a lot of fun while doing them.
Basically it’s hard to summarize such an eventful year so let’s take a look at some unpublished, behind-the-scenes pictures instead.
The torture, the anxiety, looking at the watch, click, click, click, making sure it hasn’t stopped. Two, three o’clock in the morning. Sweaty palms, bloodshot eyes glued to the screen, waiting and waiting. Voices in the head whispering it won’t happen. Go away, it will, we know. And suddenly, there is light, there is movement, hooray, it has arrived! We are ecstatic, jumping up and down singing: “Yabadabadooooo!! our first view!” Yes, somewhere out there in the unknown cyberspace somebody has graced samandthedunes.com with being our first visitor of the day. We fall on the bed exhausted. Passing out. Until next night…
