“Had we but world enough, and time”
If I did, I’d still become that balletdanser. And an astronout! The first woman to set foot on Mars. A new Mother Theresa, a balletdanser, a lawyer a writer and a painter. I would be a scholar and an environmentalist and a doctor and a pirate and a dreamer.
If I did, I would travel the world, read all the books on this earth – twice. I would see every sunset over every type of landscape and then do it all again.
Sadly though, I do not have world enough, nor time. Thankfully, I do have time to try my hand at some things – although I fear I will never see the red planet with my own eyes. This page is where I try my hand at writing about my travels and the books I have read, combining a few of my dreams.
Feel free to have a look around and tell me what you think!

A musing It’s been one of those days, again. One of those days where I kept reading stories written by and about world travellers; people following their hearts to where their feet lead them. One of those days of feeling the wind in my hair, the sun on my face ...Read More
I ALREADY HAVE THREE COPIES OF THIS BOOK AS IT IS MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE BOOK! It’s hard for me though, to put into words why I love this book so much, because the book contains so much. On the surface it is the love story of Henry DeTamble and ...Read More

A BOOK CALLED WANDERLUST, HOW COULD I NOT READ A BOOK WITH A TITLE LIKE THAT? Except it turns out that the book doesn’t really say all that much about the feeling the word portrays. The subtitle is the more accurate one: a history of walking. Getting over my slight disappointment ...Read More
