Twittering Tale: Please Stay On the Trail


Please stay on the trail. There are things in those woods you don’t want to meet.

My new Twitter page…

As some of you may know, I’m a bit shy when it comes to social media. However, I’ve decided to take a walk on the wild side and start a Twitter profile.

I have to admit, I don’t really get Twitter. I warmed to the concept of Instagram almost immediately, but Twitter still has me a bit confused. But I’m going to give it a go and hopefully it will grow on me 🙂

So if you’re on Twitter, feel free to drop by and say hello. My handle is @isabel_caves.
