Soeur à double acte

As I embark on my next “trip of a lifetime”, heading east this time, I have found myself reminiscing more than usual of past events and people in the last 5-6 years. Not sure why I should be more reflective than usual… Perhaps its the imminent expectation of New Year’s resolutions, the next Chinese New Year, the Mayan calendar, et al?  Do these things serve to remind us all that transformation is inevitable, and if we are to transform for the better, then perhaps we should pay homage to those who shaped us one way or another!?

Since I’m a firm believer that a picture can speak a thousand words, I put together a montage of some of my favourite things, people and places over this time. I have thousands of photos so it was hard to choose, and obviously I don’t have photos of everything I love and like…. So for now, I will be satisfied with what I do have and share it with you 🙂

    Wonderful article full of many great memories 😉 Wishing you a fantastic trip “East” – I am sure you’ll have an amazing time – I don’t know anyone who hasn’t come back from there full of joy and extreme love for India. We will miss you while you are away and will be thinking of you on your adventure. Great happiness for the festive season. Much love Jude & Ma XxX

    • Thanks J! I’ll miss you too… especially our daily chats about saving the world, animal rights and dentists 😉 Have a jolly holly sticks Crimbo and I’ll be straight over to London in January to celebrate my Eastern tales with you, and maybe the Chinese New Year at Hakkasan, so keep my seat warm on the Tube! Love J.X
