I am, we are, in the process of planning a few travels.
Easter break with family south west in Norway, and at cabin.
Iceland right after Easter.
Nepal after Iceland.
Barcelona for a week in July with Terje, Marta and cousin Mathilde (hopefully)
Istanbul in August (work)
Planning travels mean stacks and stacks of books and maps and travel journals in my studio.
Two of the books on my desk right now is
The Waiting Land, A Spell in Nepal, by Dervla Murphy
Milli Trjanna by the Icelandic Gyrdir Eliasson
As I have already told you I am hooked in Instagram. I have started a game there which I call #brittarnhildsquiz. Every day I post a series of one, two, three travel photos from around the world, asking where the images are from. I get a lot of likes, a few wrong guesses, and eventually a few correct ones.
While searching my photos for more travel photos for the quiz, I find new treats all the time. Like these blue doors from Durham and Lindisfarne, from May 2007.
I haven´t quite decided yet how to continue The Blue Studio Reading Group.
One book a week is a bit too much. An option could be a book every second week. Or may be it is best to read one every month?
I would like to hear what you think.
And I would like suggestions of books to read.
Here is the list we have so far:
Pondside has mentioned
The Cat's Table by Michael Ondaatje
Marily has mentioned
Eight Girls Taking Pictures, by Whitney Otto
Jane has mentioned
The Shomaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani
And myself I want to add
The Piano Teacher by Y.K.Lee
(a novel set in Hong Kong under and after WWII)
