Day 192: Funny predictions from high school

When I was a senior in High School, I decided my friends and I should make some predictions for the future. I made a survey which each of my friends filled out predicting what would happen in the future for others and themselves. Then we all sealed our predictions in the envelope without sharing what we had written.  We had planned to wait until ten years from the date we sealed the envelope, or until we were 25 to open the envelope and laugh about what people had said.

Day 216: Friendship Day competition

Yesterday was Friendship day which is a day all about celebrating your friends. You can read more about it’s inception here. My friend’s family has been celebrating this day for many years and yesterday was the first time I was able to take part.

The theme this year was “Friendship is a gift.”  Everyone was asked to bring a small gift for someone else and there was going to be a competition for the best gift wrapping. The first place was for the all around “Best wrapped gift.” The second place was for “most creatively wrapped” and third prize for the “most whimsically wrapped.” Continue reading

España: Barcelona

Ahhhh,España! Finally a country in which I feel comfortable speaking their language. Of all the places I was going on this Contiki tour, I was most excited about Barcelona. A little Spanish flavor, a chance to practice my not-often-used language skills… I couldn’t wait. Continue reading

France: Paris and the Beaujalis Wine Region

In London I joined a Contiki tour, and from there we headed off  across the English channel via ferry to Calais, France. My first real taste of France came when we arrived to Paris.  What surprised me the most about Paris was the wide, wide avenues they have. I was expecting cramped, small streets but the Champs de Elysee is huge!

I was really looking forward to seeing the Eiffel Tower in person and I have to say it definitely did not disappoint!

England: London, Bristol, & Bath

This was the third time I have been to England/ London area and I have to say it was one of the more interesting times. The last two times I was in High School and going out sightseeing with your parents is a different vibe than by yourself/ with friends.

Bustling London is an  extreme contrast to the quiet and tiny capital of Reykjavik. It took me a few days to adjust to the sheer amount of people walking around London at all times, hurrying here and there.

Eurotrip2012: Iceland!

If you read my last blog I wrote in May I was going to try and travel blog whilst in Europe. That plan failed because I didn’t have the time/computer access. Now that I have sorted through the 4,500 + photos I have taken in Europe I am planning on writing a little bit about each country I visited.

First stop: Iceland. Continue reading

Eurotrip2012!

For about the next 2 months I will be traveling in Europe! I am traveling part myself, part with a tour and part with friends. :)

I will attempt to keep a running travel blog during this time, but I am realistic that I will not always be near a computer. I will update whenever possible.

What does this mean for my daily projects you might ask? It would be tricky to do an art project everyday while traveling, so instead I am going to do a photo-a-day (dailyshoot) while I am away. This will be super easy to do as I am expecting to take a million pictures during my trip. :)

See you on the other side of the Atlantic!

 

Day 85: The Hunger Games

Day 85’s assignment was “”Work with words. Make an image with just words or letters. You can cut them from magazines, draw them yourself, or print out words on a computer to work with.”

I already posted Day 85’s assignment on Flickr but I decided to blog about it because of the cool image I found while searching for inspiration. Continue reading
