I have been missing from the Blogasphere for a few weeks as my work has been taking me on a few travels !
Dublin overnight for a training course, then a very memorable trip to Tokyo !
Given it was a 12 hour flight there & 13 hours back, it was a lot of travelling for 4 days there but we packed a lot in !
The purpose of the trip included eating & seeing lots of the
unique foods of Japan - and I got to try lots of amazing new dishes
& flavours !
The perks of working in the food industry !
And I managed to squeeze in a couple of cultural sights too - a Buddhist Temple & Shinto Shrine.
It was all so very different & fascinating !
Back home & refusing to give in to jetlag, we set back off for London to The Royal Albert Hall to see Cirque Du Soleil - what an amazing show !
The acrobatic acts, the costumes & lighting were all brilliant and absorbed our attention so that the evening just flew by !
As did the acrobats !
So It was Sunday before I got to play in my Journal - I am trying to do Journal 52 this year.
Here are the past 3 weeks challenges
This was week 3 - done before I went away.
Iin the week that he passed away, we were challenged to create a page inspired by David Bowie's lyrics.
Week 4 was inspired by the Full Moon.
This image came into my head on the long flight home - I was in Tokyo for the full moon - so this image of a shrine against the full moon seemed apt !
And I created a little verse to go with it ...
And week 5 was Monochrome and it seemed a good way to express how I feel about the long grey winter !
On my desk this week are a mountain of photos printed & ready for a scrapathon of my Tokyo trip !
Have a great crafty week !
