A sign

I knew I had this photo somewhere. It was just a matter of finding it. In the process, tonight we have taken a lovely trip down memory lane.

Its hard to believe that this adventure took place ten years ago. That's our camper van there in the foreground. We travelled up Norway and down Sweden. Across to Finland and while we were at it, we couldn't resist popping over to Estonia.

Bimbo was in Sweden. I think it was irony I was trying to create. The girl in the photo is familiar. I know I know her. She is not weathered by age and wisened by motherhood. She looks a little like Missy and is striking a pose much like the Rooster does now. I miss this carefree girl with the itchy feet but I am content in the knowledge that the world will still be there when I am ready to travel again. It will be a different world but so will be the girl carrying the backpack.

Thanks to Jenaveve for our Eyespy theme and to Cindy who manages to fit 28 hours into one day.


  1. Great sign, great pose, good times! Sounds like an adventure. I would love to see that part of the world.

  2. If only you were an actual Bimbo, that sign would be tragic! Got this feeling that you're anything but.

    We keep putting travel off until the kids are old enough to remember where they've been...

  3. HAHAHAHAHA, what a crack up!

    One of my favrourite travel pics is of a packet of Italian Twisties, over there they're called Fonzies!!!!! hehehehe.

    Thanks too for your council on changing your name. It's been so good hearing everyone's take on the topic. Such a huge decision.

  4. This totally cracked me up! Pure gold. Don't you love town signs like this?!

  5. Great sign! Ahh... the joys of travel!
