“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” – Saint Augustine
My first international trip was exploring Indonesia at the ripe old age of 21. The moment I experienced a different culture I knew that travel was for me. I set off on my own with nothing but a backpack, and a teary mother at the airport, to explore Europe in 1999. And yes, I did – ahem – party like it was 1999. I met my future husband en route from Spain to Portugal and lived in London for four years. Together we’ve explored over 40 countries across the Europe, The middle East, Africa, Asia and North America. Yes indeed, I have the travel bug.
It’s been quiet on the wanderlust front for some years with two small children but next month we’re starting a new chapter together.
Craft Schmaft HQ is moving to Hong Kong.
We’re trading our big house for tiny apartment living and our safe shores for the promise of adventure, inspiration and a life experience that I hope my little muchkins will treasure forever. It’s pee your pants excitement people. Imagine the crafty supplies, the colour and craziness of being in the heart of Asia.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey. The Craft Schmaft blog has always been about life, love and crafting and I can’t wait to share the next chapter with you. And if there are any Hong Kong peeps reading this let me know, I’d love to meet you when I get there!
