Last time I stayed at home, I took my mom for some days on holidays. It was her 60th birthday last year and she got retired, so I invited her to a mother-daughter-trip to a place of her choice.
First we thought of going to the US, but then in the end, there was not time enough and my mom suggested to stay in Europe. A nice city trip it should be. After researching a bit we decided to go to Lisboa, Portugal.
There is so much to do and so much to see…. have fun and explore your own Lisbon!
My mom and I had a good time and enjoyed our quality time (I think I gained at least 2 kg’s)
Nice shot, your mom must have been delighted.

I went to India to attend a friend’s wedding. After the festivities, I did some traveling on my own, planned through a travel agent, because I am not THAT adventurous. I ended up staying in places that were much, much nicer than I would normally be able to afford in the US. This was one of the places, a lovely resort in the state of Kerala.
Nice shot, looks like you found a little piece of utopia!

After having packed my bag and leaving some stuff behind, after having a final coffee and exchanged photos, after thanking Steve profoundly and giving him a pair of Dutch clogs, I at last set off. Steve dumped me next to the freeway and he hadn’t even left when a car stopped to take me 15km south to Crocodile Creek. The next person picked me up within five minutes. This guy started talking about testicular cancer about ten minutes in and he would take me to Proserpine, near Airlie Beach – nearly the whole way – so I was in for a long one. Turned out to be ok except for the fact that he is dead shy with women and wanted to take a picture of me so his friend(s?) would believe he hadn’t made it up. I think it took all his courage to ask me that question. And who am I to refuse since he was kind enough to give me a lift? Felt slightly uncomfortable afterwards though…
Nice shot, seems you made pretty good time overall!

I’ve been having the time of my life!!! Seriously. Words cannot describe how happy I am with the decision to study abroad. I highly reccomend this to anyone and everyone in the whole world. The world is beautiful!!! Magnificent!! But there are no guidebooks on the planet that can truly prepare you for moving across the world. Traveling is one thing..living here is just unbelievable.
It will be 4 weeks on this upcoming Tuesday…1 whole month!! I can proudly say that I’ve had the best day of my life every single day for the past 3 1/2 weeks. & I plan to have an amazing 3 more months!!
Beautiful shot! Happy you are having such a great experience!

We spent one whole day in Athens. There were so many things we wanted to see, but we didn’t have time for everything. But we had to see The Acropolis.
Athens have so much history, and it feels so special to stand and see with your own eyes these amazing things that`s been built here. Standing by Hadrian`s Arch you feel the energy from him, this hot guy, you can almost feel the sex appeal from him!

This photo was taken: On top of the Royal Plaza at the Caracol Archaeological Site in Belize.
On a particularly hot day in July, I decided to climb to the top of the tallest structure, Caana. Standing at 14 stories tall, it’s one of Belize’s tallest man-made structures. Sitting at the top of this pyramid is one of my favorite views in the world. The sprawling jungle behind the jutting rocks of the temples and the howler monkeys in the distance growling for territory. I love it here.
Great shot, love those Mayan ruins!

“You can’t start the new chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one”
And so this is the start of something new, me branching out on my own, a journey of self discovery. I had a really good trip out today to the craft store and bought a few goodies in fact the stamps you see in the art journaling below plus some other bits, it was nice to be out to be honest.
I am learning that whilst I am strong it doesn’t take much to break through the walls and affect me so I am working on that, on letting go of anger and starting to make some plans for myself for the next 5 months so I have stuff to look forward to.
What I am very excited about is the new releases from the Dylusions range, at last a smaller journal for everyday use, new stencils and stamps I really can’t wait to place my order, you can see the additions here, enjoy!!
I really love starting a new journaling spread as I never know where it is going to take me so I just keep adding, tweaking until it all starts coming together. Sometimes I get stuck on the composition side but today it all gelled together and I like how it turned out, very much how I am feeling, re-newed hope.
Nice shots, self expression through art is a great way to begin healing!

After a few days exploring Bavaria with our family, we headed to Israel for a week-long tour. Mom and Nanny had not yet been to Israel, so we thought a tour would be the best way for them to take in as much as possible. If you are looking for a great tour in Israel, we definitely recommend the company we used: http://guidedtoursisrael.com/
What a great shot, love that artwork!
