Some bits of music that i like/liked the last month/years. This time very related to my country: germany
Yesterday + today is very music related. I´m importing my about 200 CD´s to iTunes. It´s just great and fun. Haven´t listened to some of the albums since 5-10 years.
P.S.: i´m working on updating more often. To pretty up the blog and i have a give-a-way on my mind.
but for those 500 pencils i would love to be one.
How would it look like to draw with the Norwegian sky or a Drizzly Afternoon? It could inspire to everything.
Imagine how it would be recieving 25 coloured pencils every month for 20 month. Maybe i would display them like this. Or find new ways and ideas.
I would definetly have much fun with these pencils, colours, names and stories.
What about you?
How time is flying by. I have to tell you this vaccation is one of the best i ever had so far. Three weeks behind us and one week still before us. I´m the lucky one with international parents and in-laws. My mother is from sweden and my father in law was born and grown up in Brazil.
My husband and i love to travel and we often can choose between Sweden or Portugal as vaccation destination. Our parents have houses there. So this summer we planned a roadtrip to Portugal. Our son stayed with his grandparents and we got on our way. 6 days just for us as a couple and Paris, Biarritz, Bilbao, meet up with some old friends and so much more on the way.
We drove about 2300 km in 6 days. Included many visits, best croissants and baguette ever, cheese, good wine, crocheting on the road, ocean, ocean, ocean, friends…….
I will let the pictures tell the story:
So the last picture is the view that we have every day since our Roadtrip ended. It will be hard to leave. But still 4 days of vaccation. Tomorrow we go to Porto. Vila Nova de Gaia is on the other side of the Rio Douro. Where all the great Portwines come from.
and best summer wishes from Portugal.
Do you love where you live and do you like the earth?
Do you have kids, or do you want to have?
We have a kid and we want to have more kids.
Do we have 10 more years to waste, pollute and destroy our planet?
No. We don´t have that time. But maybe the following film trailer gives us some questions and answers.
Have you seen this great and thought-provoking video?
For a sustainable future.
Yesterday Jan Bargen a friend from study period started his 2500 km long biketour from Lisbon to Luxembourg to raise money for 2 projects at the Peace and Research Center in Tamera/Portugal.
If you are interested have a look at his website.
For more info´s about the projects and the Peace and Research Center.
So if you like the idea and want to support him, spread the word or donate what you can afford.
For a world with Peace.
