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.
