Hello dear readers and happy New Year!
I have been visiting family and friends in the United States for the holidays, so I’ve been lax on travel updates. I’ll get back to business soon enough – we head for London, England, next week, and we’re off to some cities in Morocco later this month.
Meanwhile, I created a video with 2017 highlights of our adventures.
I currently only have the free app iMovie for video editing. I’m thinking of upgrading to a paid app this year. I made that 2017 movie on my iPhone 6, which was kind of a pain in the ass on such a small screen. But since I like the convenience of the phone, I’ll likely just get an editing app made for Apple. (My iPad is ancient – no more software updates – and I use a Windows laptop.) Anyone have any suggestions on great video editing apps? Maybe even one that works on both Windows and Apple? I’d love to hear about what other people use so I can make better movies this year. I miss Final Cut Pro from my old working life (but I do NOT miss the working life!).
As we get ready for more travel in 2018, I’m incredibly grateful for this life of early retirement budget travel. It was a long road to get here, but the journey was worth it. We lived how we wanted to live in 2017. Maybe we’ll see you out here, somewhere in the world, in the New Year!
