Dreams do come true

The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land;
it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land. 
~G.K. Chesterton

15 years ago chef and I were traveling from New York to California
 stopping in Santa Fe New Mexico
 massive wild fires raging at the time
we went to Moab Utah instead
Santa Fe and Taos has been on my bucket list for so long
Dreamt of visiting this magical place in the southwest forever
  the landscape, the art and Georgia.
I am.
in a round about way
My Norwegian passport expiries 
 no longer renewable locally in Missoula with a Norwegian Consulate representative
  New York, San Francisco or Houston
 are my choices
I picked Texas
...pretty clever
New Mexico is around the corner
In this case dreams do come true
Have a wonderful week
Love to all
 peace out beansprout!


  1. Enjoy your week! I love to holiday in my own country, I don't have a passport at the moment so I don't have much choice!

  2. Have a great week, Camilla! Have fun!

  3. Funny, our passports just expired too - we are Canadian, so no more trips to the States until we renew them.

  4. Hope you have a fabulous time, Camilla! Can't wait to hear all about it (I hope). xo

  5. You are very clever. I know you will have a fabulous time, NM is so much fun.

  6. How clever of you :) Have the most wonderful time my friend. Travel safe. xo

  9. There is a reason they call New Mexico the Land of Enchantment. Good choice for a travel destination!

  10. I know you are going to have so much FUN!!! Pop in to Tutto if you have a chance and say 'hi' to David and Gregory for me. I went with them to the Shetland Islands a few years ago.....super great guys and a lovely shop!!!

  14. Hi there,
    i just have to say that i find so much beauty in the way that you present and mix, nature and wool. I always stop a little moment to look at each peace of nature, and try to figure what is it..
    anyway, have fun!

    Oh, sorry for my written english, im portuguese, so... :)

  15. Hope you had fun. The last time I was in Santa Fe was a looong time ago and I've heard it's much more crowded now. Still lovely, though, I'm sure. And Taos is just special.
