I came across a blog site of a young Filipino couple who loves to travel abroad. One of the recent entries is about their European tour. Only last May, the young couple visited a medieval city in Belgium. They were not able to fully elaborate what they saw in Belgium besides an overwhelming description of chocolates they found on display in the shops of Bruges. The entry is also loaded with pictures of the couple with the beautiful sites of Belgium serving as backdrop. They are just lovely.
Another blog entry that is too interesting (especially for postcard collectors) not to share is their project fridge which involves sending postcards to their relatives and friends and buying magnets to stick it with from the places they have traveled.
I may not know the couple personally but I sure learned a lot from their European adventure.
My daughter brought home lots of chocolates from their recent school field trip. She bought some of my favorite brands. I may be watching my sweets intake (not because I’m diabetic, but it contributes to weight gain), but I can’t help myself not to even taste some. She also tried to look for a guitar while she’s at the Duty Free Shop. I told her we can check affordable gibson at Musicians friend if she’s really interested to own one. She said there are so many things to buy at Duty Free, but she doesn’t have enough money to buy the things that she needs.
Have you been traveling? If yes, your family and friends will expect you to bring them mementos and sometimes these can be costly. Therefore, the best thing for you to do is to buy them stone beads. This where nature meets creativity and stone beads for jewelry will make a great deal for you and the resulting jewelry will be very affordable. Since they are very impressive, you can leave the recipients to place price tags on the jewelry. For a long time now, stone beads have been used for ornaments and once they are polished to perfection, no one can tell the difference. You can see many images posted online before you buy.
