Amsterdam, blog friend meeting and Our Beautiful World

Hello from Amsterdam!


Meeting Wendy in real life is totally awesome!
We had breakfast together, exchanged gift and then stroll and talk for a long long time, in fact, we spent nearly the whole day together, it was fun fun fun and lots of fun!

My next stop is.....


and I am meeting another friend, I am so excited!!!

Here's the word for .......






"Reflection"

I was in New York City end of May, and visited the Reflecting Pool for the first time....


I am sure everyone knows that this is a memorial site for 9/11.
The reflecting pool resonates with the feelings of loss and absence that were generated by the death and destruction at the World Trade Center. It is a sad sad sight indeed.

Lovely picture of the Reflection Pool, Kirsty. Will never understand how people can become so evil--devastatingly sad for those families & friends. On a happier note--so fun to see the cute picture of you & your friend! Can only imagine what a happy day you had! I know the next picture is London & I know you get to meet Ros & have another wonderfully fun day! Hugs to both of you!
