A Mild Case of "Blogger's Syndrome"

Blogger's Syndrome: A mild behavioural disorder found in members of blogging communities which manifests as a desire to post about events and/or occurrences experienced in the course of one's daily life.

I think I have "blogger's syndrome"...but it doesn't hurt at all and actually, I think I'm enjoying it.

Last week I found this completely unexpected suprise at the beach (I guess that's what a suprise is)...it seems there's this worldwide "game" called "Geocaching" going on using GPS to track down little treasure-boxes that have been left so they can be found...strangers who stumble upon these treasure-boxes by chance are also welcome. The rules are: sign and comment in the notebook, and if you take a "treasure" from the box, leave something in its place. I didn't have my camera at the ready, but I did come back after my swim with my camera, my assistant! and something to put in the box before the light, which was really beautiful that afternoon, vanished...I was thinking: This is so much fun for me, imagine how much fun kids would have finding this!

  1. What a lovely activity...
    Possibly people there in your country are more respectful than in mine... if someone tried that here in Spain the box would "vanish" at the first attempt (I know what I talk about, I lost track of three books trying to do Bookcrossing)

  3. This is an amazing idea - I've never heard of it before but I shall definitely be googling it for more information.

    I'm so pleased you've entered my giveaway... I was nervous about doing it, but it's proving to be great fun!

    Good luck

  8. How exciting to find a geocache and what a terrific idea it is. I would be chuffed to find one and my kids would think it was most thrilling!!!
    I love the toy society too and have been 'toying' with the idea of joining in...forgive the pun!
