Despite my brother’s best intentions, my name isn’t really Gydle. It’s Mary. Gydle was born on a whim in Lausanne, Switzerland, moved with me to Vancouver, Canada and now is enjoying its slow, golden years in Melbourne, Australia. Gydle is where I write about all kinds of things that intrigue and inspire me in this dynamic fabulous world. It’s great that you have stopped by to have a look.

Gydle has a Facebook page—”like” that page and you’ll be notified whenever I put up a new post. Or you can subscribe and get the posts by e-mail. Or you can just stop by every so often and see what I’ve been up to.

Here’s a picture of yours truly from our adventure hiking the Pacific Crest Trail through Oregon. And another from an even more recent funfest running the Queenstown Marathon in New Zealand.
