I love to travel,

allways curious to discover

New places

New fragrances

New sights

New faces..

I guess one can say

I`ve definitely got ”the bug”.

I have also been an immigrant several times,

and, as opposed to being a tourist,

immigrating to a new country

can be a very complex experience.

One involving the difficulties

of adapting anew, the loss of familiar ground

alongside the thrill of new discoveries.

All in all, it is undoubtedly ALLWAYS

a fulfilling and enriching learning adventure.

Here`s to all fellow travelers out there, wherever you are, 

might be with you!

”…We wanderers, everseeking the lonlier way,

 begin no day where we have ended another day;

 and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us.

 even while the earth sleeps we travel.

 We are the seeds of the tenacious plant,

 and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart

 that we are given to the wind and are scattered.”‘

                                     The Prophet/Kahlil Gibran

All this talk about travelling has made me want to

hop on my horse and…listen to this old time favorite

of mine that makes you wander…

Girl,you`ve got me doing the chain thing…

Cristen ia a fabulous persona, a multi faceted jewel, so full of ideas, dedicated to making this world a better place.

She has me tagging along as a huge fan,curious to see what is her next step,thirsty to take in more of what she has to preach!

One of her projects concerns the amazing initiative of doing something about all those plastic bags continuing to be distributed despite them being non-biodegradable,creating huge pollution to our planet!

Cristen came up with some very creative ideas,crocheting the plastic into various objects including these gorgeous fashionable totes,and has been a huge success selling them at fairs and through her online shop.

On her plastic bag crochet blog  she even shows us how to get to it! aswell as important info explaining us the harm these plastic bags bring.

So join us on the ”chain game”, and lets help our planet breath!

As you might know,on the 16.8 there was a partial lunar eclipse.

During a lunar eclipse the earth comes between the sun and the moon,

casting it`s shadow on the moon.

For those of you who didnt get to see it…Ive brought you the moon!

Welcome
