one step further, one step closer

I’d be disappointed with myself if I returned back to Norway with the same photos from Haiti as last year
(not that it’s literally possible, but I’m guessing you know what I mean?)

Therefore, I have a new photo motto. It goes something like this: get CLOSER, you!!

Adventure, yes!

Gosh!! I’ve got so many things to show and tell; I don’t know where to begin! One week in Haiti has felt like a little life in itself. Is that an English expression, btw?

However, my Internet connection is quite bad, so I’m saving my stories for later. But can you believe I’ve been to the Kanaval? I have, I have!!

Back to Haiti

It’s unbelievable that I’m once again packing my bags to go the Caribbean, to Haiti. Last year I made a photo collage of the clothes I brought with me. It gave me a nice overview over my wardrobe during six-or-so weeks away from home. So I tried something similar while packing this year too, but there was just no time or space to make it as… orderly as I would have wished.

packed and what?

I wouldn’t have believed it was possible, but I feel equally badly prepared as the first time I was going. Yet, I’ll be on the airplane in a couple of hours.

             Wish me luck!
