Love your list! I have been following nr. 5 ever since I read it, it is a very clever advice.
Happy Thursday, it must be sunny in your area: it's been raining since yesterday here! It's warm, though, I feel I am in the tropics , ha!

Marvellous list. So many quotes are true for me. I love to travel. It's one of those things which make life interesting. Experiencing different cultures is an amazing thing.

I love your list! It is so true. Perhaps that is why I am frustrated with Hubby lately. He wants to do nothing but sit at home. What a wonderful adventure I have had here in Germany!

A very true list! Only "one" problem right now: whatever plans we make, they seemed to be "disturbed" right now!

First the ash clouds from Iceland stopped all flying... (we were planning to fly to US)

Then we said: let's go to the north of Sweden instead. What happened? Floodings, roads destroyed, raining....

OK, lets go to the southern Sweden instead. As soon as we had said that the unusually heavy rain started - and has been going on since then!!!

Then we said: OK, let's take the ferry to the island Ă…land - towards Finland. What happens? Strike warnings on the ferries!

Then we decided that there were enough signs for us to stay at home until it's time for our summer island the 21th of June... *giggles*
