signs of life

One of my favourite things to do is walk, I consider it one of my hobbies, I can walk for hours, I don’t need a destination I just need to walk. I especially like the little back streets, streets with character or what I have always called “signs of life”. Washing hanging on a balcony, flowering pot plants in the window, a cat asleep on the front step, you know what I mean we see it all around us, but normally we walk straight past it. I am starting a little personal project called “signs of life” , just for me and just for fun.

I have just finished editing the photographs I took while on holiday in Devon in the UK over the summer! What is it now? oh yes, its the end of September, its only taken me two months!

I am looking forward to creating my artifact uprising book now! I will blog a series in a while (maybe within the next 2 months lol) but for now I will leave you with just one.

#havekidswilltravel – part 1

I have always travelled, it has been a part of my life since I was four years old. I am a lot like what many people nowadays call a third culture kid, except I am all grown up.
When I had my own kids we were living in Spain. I always knew that we would continue to travel, and my kids and my camera have proved to be the best companions I could have ever asked for on this journey. However I had never expected to learn so much through seeing the world through the eyes of a child.
Travelling with children is an adventure in itself and it is like seeing the world anew, exploring and discovering with all your senses heightened.
I have made this part 1 of an ongoing project, it is a project that is close to my heart, one that I am doing not only for myself, but also for my own little third culture kids as they discover the wonderful world we live in.

Lauren - I always love seeing your adventures!!
