As part of a housekeeping initiative, I’ve decided to file my entries under certain names. I started with Short Bites, with each entry featuring short stories the captured my interest. After that, I came up with Novel Reactions, with each entry featuring a full book I recently read. I’d been sitting on a name for my travel features, but, I’ve finally found the one: Curious Travels.
Curious… Doesn’t that sound a lot like Mr. Ollivander when Harry got his wand? Exactly. Well, not really—not in the dramatic kind of way that was portrayed in the movie, but I like the word. “Curious” typically refers to those who like knowing or learning new things. It can also describe something unusual or unexpected. (For example, Mr. Ollivander said “curious” because found he it odd that the same phoenix connected Harry’s and Voldemort’s wands.)
In sort of the same way (if you really try to think about it), this isn’t a regular travel blog. My travel entries go more along the lines of “hey, look at this! I went here and really liked it,” rather than “ok, so if you want to go to XYZ, let me lay down the logistics of it all.” Yeah… my entries are not going to be very instructive (as compared to those on most travel blogs). You know what, I’m just trying to say that I’m different even if others might not think I’m so unique.
Does this change the type of content on The Hungriest Reader? Nope, I just thought it would be fun to make a big deal out of housekeeping. (It was.)
