I like to travel






Although I've been on some great trips recently, I always want to travel more.
Yesterday I found this journal I had made of our trip to Turkey eleven years ago! It was fun to look back on my old writing and little paintings and remember our trip.
Since I've been blogging, I've had the opportunity to make many little trips each day to places I would never have the chance to visit otherwise.
This morning I discovered that the lovely *Marie* had given me a blog of purpose award. Thank you so much *Marie*! It truly made my day!
So, in keeping with the travel theme here, I would like to pass this award onto five others (although I wish I could pass it on to many, many more) who let me visit their worlds through their beautiful photos, artwork, and words every day. Thanks for taking me places!

Esti, in Spain for sharing her lovely drawings, colorful photos, and inspirational words

Andrea, in Prague for her gorgeous images of the countryside, animals, nature, and her amazing artwork

Anu, in Finland for a glimpse into her world of beautiful things around her home and her family

Mallinkowa, in Poland for wonderful design and fashion ideas and little glimpses of her town

and

Artycho, in England for her creative artwork, beautiful hats, and for making me feel like I'm taking a walk in the English countryside with her photos

Rules follow below, ladies.


1. You have to nominate 5 blogs, which haven't had this award before!

2. Each of the blogs must have a purpose!

3.The nominated blogs must make a link back to this page!

4. The logo from the award must be put on their blog and it must link back to this blog!

I love your journal - those illustrations are awesome! I wish I knew how to draw so I could have sketched some amazing pics of my time in Angkor, Cambodia (took heaps of pics though). xx
