It's refreshing to leave 'certainties' and routines behind,
and immerse oneself in another culture.
(Other people have said this definitely more eloquently than I did...)
It's lovely to be surrounded with tangible memories of these travels.
(Okay, so I'm a bloody consumer while travelling - yes.)
In a mountain town in India I purchased these wooden boxes.
For a while they just stood somewhere without any specific purpose,
other then being beautiful.
Then shortly after I got the crochet virus, et voilà.
