Have you ever bought prescription glasses online or do you usually go to the optician to select your new frames? Up till now I have always tried on my glasses in person. I am that lovely near-sighted girl who continues to put on and take off different frames in comparison inches away from the mirror. Which do I like better? One or Two?

For my throwback this week I share another polorid photo from my childhood. This one was taken by my dad on a camping trip he took my sister and I on one summer. We were at a campsite in Germisch, Germany. I had just learned how to cook a dinner of veggies and meat in foil over the BBQ at scouts and was ‘showing my dad’ how to do it. 😉 I think another great aspect of this photograph is the fashion my sister and I are wearing from the early 90’s.
I still love taking pictures with Polaroid film.
For me, it offers the most beautiful way of capturing reality
and transferring it onto a flat piece of paper.
Q: Have you been to Garmisch, Germany?

While he could not be here for this trip, I wanted to show him the amazing Thai food he was missing back in California. Purposely we had the photo taken after we had just finished an amazing meal at Mama’s, a place we had frequented back in 2004. It is hard to have a bad meal when traveling in Thailand with the different flavourable tastes and wide variety of vegetables and fruit from the region in south east Asia. Continue reading

I am not quite sure this is a real term,
but it clearly defines a real problem.
The reason I love blogging most is being able to connect with people
who share similar nomadic stories and share the wanderlust for life.
I am on the look out fellow expats, third culture kids, and travelers
for a new upcoming blog series on A Compass Rose. Continue reading
