some inspiration

came to me today ...from my DH - no less...he is a travel agent, and before we settled here in Queensland we spent 10 years living in London and were lucky enough to travel to many destinations around the world. Before we were together we both did the backpacking thing as well separately..and travel is something that we both love....
however the reality of 3 kids living in regional Qld with one salary and one full time uni student...travel to exotic and far off destinations is just not something in our reality for at least 5 years.
so...............while at my husband's store today I was looking at an Around The World fare - 19 stops in some amazing places - I thought (insert light bulb here) how I would love to Scrap Around the World...(from my scrap room of course - no passport or travellers cheques required..)

I am going to create an Around the World Route...and use each destination as inspiration for a project - hopefully it will stretch my creativity and get me (virtually anyway) away from it all!!

I have been planning my dream trip and so far here it is:
Leaving from Brisbane, Queensland, and then heading to Beunos Aires - Mexico - New York - Rekjavik - Dublin - London - Paris - Florence - Prague - Lapland - Cairo - Nairobi - Cape Town - Delhi - Kathmandu - Tokyo - Singapore - Bali - Home.....
WOW imagine that trip !!

Feel free to come with me..I think I will probably need at least 2 weeks in each destination to really see the sights, so I will be "travelling" for at least 6 months

.......I am leaving from Brisbane. I will post some images of "BrisVegas"..but when I think of Brisbane - I think of Jacarandas, fireworks, one-way streets, the Storey Bridge, the Brisbane River..huge electrical storms and blue, blue sky.....


So each project will be a layout or OTP - inspired by the flavours, sights, sounds, colours, culture and people of each destination...

I LOVE this idea.
Sometimes I wished you had already finished your degree so we could have you already at St Lukes teaching the kids. You are going to be such a breath of fresh air mate to the school that gets you. I love your innovative mind, so free and yet so structured at the same time.
