Around the World by Horse and Caravan: A Record Breaking Journey

I've been holding this story back awhile - non-fiction this time. Originally an attempt at getting the journey below into Wikipedia the resulting article is what you see. I went on this record breaking journey around the world with my family by horse and caravan starting in 1990. The First Around the World by Horse Drawn… Continue reading Around the World by Horse and Caravan: A Record Breaking Journey

Weekly Six XXXII – Six Word Stories

ONE, TWO, THREE, four, five. I can't count much above that, but I'm fairly certain there are six words in each story, no more no less. Enjoy: Amicable divorce: hatred split fifty fifty.
