10 years ago.....

This is the theme for Challenge Me Happy challenge #17.  I really had to think about what I was doing 10 years ago.  When you think about it 2002 just seems so long ago.....but it's not really. 

There's been a project that I've been wanting to work on for a long time and this challenge really conincided with it.  Ten years ago I returned back to NZ after being in London for 4 years.  Prior to landing back on the shores I spent 5 months travelling around Europe with my husband to be.  And what a time we had !! 

I kept a travel diary and it's full of bits and pieces of 'stuff' that I collected on our journey.  Which is invaluable, and I'm so grateful that I kept this journal (as this was back in the day when digital cameras were starting to make their mark) as I double exposed a roll of film.  I still to this day have no idea how it happened as I took ALOT of photos and had ALOT of film, and they turned out all ok.  So for the first couple of "film" that I used I don't really have any photos BUT I do have my journal. 

To kick start my project of our adventures I began at the beginning with our first stop - Biarritz. It really did bring the memories back.  I used Scrapbookcircle's "remember this" kit full of new products by My Mind's Eye and Rhonna Farrer - LOVE this product. 

Sorry that the photo quality isn't the best - it's been a week of grey and dismal weather.

Thanks for looking.
