Monthly Wrap : April 2014

Top Five

Here’s the list of our top 5 posts for April.  Once again, the Weekly Photo Challenge dominates and it spans many countries around the world. We’ve become regulars and enjoy digging into the archives. As a result, we’ve gained more followers, found a few more blogging mates to exchange with, and a number of interesting blogs for us to follow too !  It’s also helped us to review our blog by looking at others, and we’ve made a few tweaks here and there with format and changing our watermark to a friendlier (we think) cursive.

1. Weekly Photo Challenge : Monument Giza, Egypt
2. Weekly Photo Challenge : Letters Sydney, Australia
3. Weekly Photo Challenge : On Top Viscri, Romania

Monthly Wrap : January 2014

This New Year’s Eve we watched fireworks on the beach at Waikiki – it was the first time in many years as the kids have finally managed to stay up past midnight.  Not all of us had made our resolutions by then, but we have all started the year with something new.

       Cowlick is eating his way around around Asia
       Moo Cow is developing her photography and Instagram fan base
       Chocolate Milk Cow & Purple Cow are building iPhone apps
       Spotted Cow is gaining popularity through her vibrant photographs

And just maybe in 2014 … all of our individual projects will marvelously synthesise on the wanderingcows!

Here’s a review of our top 5 posts for January, the sun & surf in Hawaii dominating the list.  Post favourites, as voted by your views, likes and comments, are ranked in order:

1. Hawaiiana. Surf & Hula. Hawaii, USA
2. Rainbow State Hawaii, USA
3. Bondi Icebergs Sydney, Australia
4. Unfurling ferns Hawaii, USA
5. Front row seats at the surf Hawaii, USA

Enjoy the “post”-cards!

Looking forward to a fantastic year ahead.

Monthly Wrap : December 2013

December culminated with a cow meetup for the Christmas and New Year holidays. Forward planning meant we were able to publish posts ahead of time which enabled us to enjoy the sun, surf and volcanoes offline – albeit with a healthy dose of free wifi “mooching” from local coffeehouses and hotel lobbies. Moo Cow – our most creative and artistic family member – surprised us with a hand-painted wandering cows plate for Christmas!

Here’s a review of our top 5 posts for December, with Asia, tea and transport as the linking theme.  Post favourites, as voted by your views, likes and comments, are ranked in order:

1. Malaysian Butterflies Cameron Highlands, Malaysia
2. Motorbikes in Hanoi Hanoi, Vietnam
3. Segway Copenhagen Copenhagen, Denmark
4. Tea in the Malaysian Hills Cameron Highlands, Malaysia
5. Turkish Tea Turkey
