Day 306- My Own Journey

My Passport Cover


I have 5 minutes before my sister is due to arrive to drive  me to the airport. So this is my 5 minute post. Hardly befitting the record of this momentous, historical and rather significant journey I will be making. How can I pen down all the emotions I am feeling at this point in 5, no , 4, no 3 minutes and counting? 

So I will just say it like it is.  I will be  spending three weeks in Europe, starting with Barcelona to Genoa to be with friends who have become really dear to me,  Amsterdam . Wankerdorf then to Gdansk, meeting friends for the 1st time and attending a miniature fair, for the first time as well. 

I am like a child again.. Feeling emotions I have lost for years. I am so excited I feel like jumping up and down, so happy I just can't stop smiling . I am thrilled beyond words. 

So Eva, Rosanna, Sylvia, Birgit and Ewa who have kindly offered to play host while I visit, WAIT FOR ME, I AM COMING!!! NOW!

Guess what - while writing a comment yesterday on your post my computer crashed once more!!! Aaaaarrrrrgggghhhh! That adds some more grey hairs, you will check that out (LOL). - What I wanted to say is: Hope you've had a fantasic journey and that you will have a miracle time in Europe. What a line of gorgeous cities: Barcelona, Genua, Amsterdam, Gdansk - and then a tiny, boring village called Wankendorf. I feel so honored and blessed to be among these...

See you soon - yippiiiieee!

Birgit

dale's dreams said...

How exciting! To get to see all of your friends and to attend your first mini show, too! A whole month!!! :) Very exciting and I can't wait to hear all about it.

Be safe and have a fabulous child, so nice to hear how excited you are. :)

Sans! said...

Greetings from Barcelona,Margriet:). Thanks to the warmth and hospitality of Eva and her family, I am having the best time! :) Will you believe I have already "met" 2 curulle chairs in Barcelona!

Sans! said...

Cinds!!! Eva is over the moon with your gift ! Your impossibly high standards to tini-ness and precision will be the subject of a show and tell with the Spanish miniaturists on 31/3. That's when I will meet them , I think it's at Eva's house :).

Sans! said...

OMG Josje!!!!! Rosanna and I will be at the Arnhem Fair on 24/3. I really hope to see you there and if we have time , to grab some tea . We are traveling to Germany on the same day but on the night train. I am really looking forward to saying hi to you so you must,must,must and I will too of course, try and find you :)

Sans! said...

Eliana, I have already taken some pretty pictures of Barcelona houses. Pretty because the "models" are gorgeous to begin with not due to my skills. I will put up the pictures soon.

Note to self: remember these names: Talamanca and Stiges

Sans! said...

*ding -waving wand

Betsy, your dreams will come true! I remember saying that to a blog friend who really wanted to go to France and true enough about 1.5 years later( more or less I think) she did!!

It will come true for you too. Don't doubt that :):):):):)

Sans! said...

Kikka :) having a great time . Even the jet lagging worked out for me. I sleep before 10pm and wake up at 5am to comment :).

Sans! said...

Susanne!!!! I will be just totally and absolutely thrilled if somehow we can meet :) let me now go check if I have you're email.

Yes I do:) I will send you an email :). To let you know my itinerary. Let's see what fate has in store for us :).

Sans! said...

Faiiiiii!!!!! You are talked about so much your ears must be itching!

We were at the La Sagrada Familia 2 days ago to see the new chapel. They created the columns to assimilate trees in a forest , amazing doesn't begin to describe it. Anyway, I turned to ask Alex the historical meaning of something , his quick answer was "I don't know, let's ask Fai. I am sure he can explain much better! " he then pretended to call you in his mobile. Haha

Alex is the most disappointed that you didn't come! Eva said " oh of course Alex is very happy you are here but you know, he was really hoping to see Fai again.."

I bought something for Margaret's birthday . I am thinking of sending some stuff back. See if you can collect it from office when they arrive ?

Sans! said...

Birgitta :):) ( I don't know why the spellcheck on ipad calls you Birgitta , see there it goes again but I like it :) ) quick,,, go dye your hair , we are coming!!! :) kidding of course but now I know a tube of henna may be a good gift for you heh heh :).

I am the one who's really honoured that you are so kind to want to meet us :). Guess what I had for my 1st breakfast in Barcelona? Strawberries of course!!!!! They taste just like the expensive ones in Singapore :). You will be proud to know that I had 2 biggie ones :).

Sans! said...

ONLY 3 weeks Dale, teehee not the whole month but yes, it is a long time away :). A luxury, a dream, a wish come true but no, I won't be having a child , no no ... Hehe just teasing you on your typo .

Sans! said...

Thank you Drora.

I am really sorry that these past weeks or maybe even months ( time really flies) , I haven't had the pleasure to visit all your blogs. I must find time to do that soon. That was how I got to know so many wonderful friends I am meeting now.

Sans! said...

I will Debbie :). Thank you!

Sans! said...

Maria Ireland , this will be a historical trip for me because of the friends I will be meeting. Incredible,generous and yes, truly wonderful people :).

Sans! said...

Ana, we were at the seaside town of Stiges yesterday and for some reason, I thought of you and Portugal and the secret hideaway you blogged about some time back :).

Sans! said...

I will Natlia! Kisses to you too :).

By the way , You are taking forever to reply to my email !!! Heh heh I am so pushy even when I am far away from home :). I am just kidding, as usual . take your time , you know I will do the same :) .

Sans! said...

Yo yo Faby ;) . Thxxxxxxxxx!

Sans! said...

Flora, I am not only reading your lovely and heartwarming comment , I am replying !!! Woohoo! And from the comfort of a little boy's bed under a nice warm blanket closer to you than before :).

In 2 days I will be creeping even closer . I am not flying over your heads but towards your faces :):) like a mosquito :). It will be such a thrill if I can kiss all of your cheeks .

Sans! said...

Patts, yes it is the Arnhem fair. THE fair as far as I am concerned ,the one that I really really wanted to see before the others. I will try and show pictures . By the way I have already went to my 1st fair. Quite by chance , they were holding the festival of patchwork and quilts in Stiges.. Some of the quilts really blew my mind! Will show some pictures :).

Sans! said...

I will, V! Thx for the well wishes!

Sans! said...

Jollie , will ou believe I thought the island of Lesbos was in Spain :)!

dale's dreams said...

lol! Took me a while to figure out what I was originally trying to say!

My excitement ran away with me. ;)

I meant, have a fabulous time with the child in you. :) Seeing things with the eyes of a child, like the excitement you stated in your post.

Sorry! I read that myself and thought, that is rather odd. ;) lol
