Where did the first 3 months of 2014 go? It’s ridiculous! It’s already March! So what’s been happening? Well, I am still in love with travelling. The bug has been there since I turned 21 and took my first 2-week vacation to London, and by now I am used to it infecting my every thought and overseeing how I spent every cent I earn. In preparation for the 3 week trip to Europe in May, I have, as usual before travelling, been spending time browsing pictures of past trips, and I found some photos from Chiang Mai which I never got to share with you. So here’s some eye candy before we get to more personal stuff.
Did you enjoy that? Chiang Mai is not exactly off the beaten track, but this series of images capture what I loved most about it – the colour, the spirituality and the art.
On a different note, my attention this year has been on polishing and pitching my adult fantasy novel called ‘When the River froze.’ A couple of rejections have already rolled in, but I get it. This is one weird, passionate and hurricane-like tale, and I can see why it wouldn’t appeal to every agent out there. But to the ones it does, it will blow their socks off. I believe in my work 100%, and I know I need to keep researching and pitching to agents I believe will love my work as much as I do.
How about you? What projects – travel or non-travel related – have you been working on?
