But what really tops the list for me is seeing the world through my camera (and it a brand new Nikon- A Bluepie treat to me!) There is nothing better than composing, hearing the shutter click and knowing I am making memories that I can look back on and relive the best moments of my trip.
So, for now I look at photographs from years past, from an actual scrapbook or an online digital travel site.
I began one a few years ago at http://www.travelpod.com/members/bluespirit
Very cool!. I keep a journal of every step of the way (nerds do this ) on each trip not only because I love to write but also so I can remember what the hell I did! After all what good are memories if you can't remember them!
This morning I spent time gathering up my handcrafted photo cards, writing up descriptions and posting away on Etsy. They remind me of the good times I've had and my hope is that they will create new dreams and connections for others who may hold them in their hands and feel the same magic I did.
I dont' know where I will end up this year but I know it will be another not- to- be missed adventure!
