Self Portrait Tuesday: traveling soul

As I was laying in bed last night I remembered that it was Tuesday and I had not posted anything for SPT. Instead of getting out from under warm covers, I spent some time thinking: what is my history anyway?

This morning I looked through photos only to find that I have almost no pictures from my childhood. But what I do have is boxes and albums full of photos from my travels. In those pictures I see a deep sense of calm; I see someone who is happy and healthy and glad to be alive. Yes, it's true, I have a traveling soul. I would have liked to collage a timeline of all my journeys, but that would take all day.

So instead, I leave you with a small moment of peace that I found while in Italy. I hope you can feel it too.

I officially have the travelbug, no thanks to you. =) All I could think in classes today was "Where will we go in this country? What if we lived there? Can I go there?"

I love that picture, btw.

I'm catching it from everyone, and I can't afford to do anything about it! Anyone up for a trip to Canada?

Italy is such a fantastic country. Most of the time it overwhelms you with the feeling.
