Drawers

Drawers tend to have a life of their own. Mines at least do. During my move, I kept putting all the small stuff (like pictures, instructions manuals of God knows what, old papers, old mobiles, etc. - I am not done yet therefore don't know what I will find) in one big drawer. It kept getting fuller and fuller until this morning when I opened it, looking for something, not finding it and trying to close it again - NOT succeeding.
That was a sign. I had to start working on my drawer.

Oh my.

Let's just say that I spent the afternoon sorting my photos. Old photos - from 2004 to 2006 (I had them on discs. Do you believe it? My computer back then was sooo slow that I had to put them on CD because the laptop kept shutting down - to many data on it. I remember losing my nerves more than one time!). The drawer is still pretty full but now at least my pictures are totally but sooo totally up to date.
Wanna see some old pictures?

Let's start with Zurich's Bahnhofstrasse. Do you remember when we had all these bears all along the shopping mile? Weren't they cute? That was in 2005, by the way. Doesn't time go by quickly?



January 2005 - my first trip on my own: Amsterday. I remember the cold. It was totally f... cold!!
Summer 2005: I spent two whole months (overtime and vacation time) in Italy and went to visit San Leo (Emilia Romagna border to Marche) amongst other places:
 
  
September 2004: Trip to the Southern part of Tuscany with my history of art class. That's where I, for the first time, started to take pictures with a digital pocket camera. That changed my way of looking at my surroundings because I could take tons of pictures not worrying about films :-) You'll see more pictures of Tuscany these next couple of days.
 



And last but not least, I went to New York City in 2005. Here again: you'll see some more pics later on...


PS: By the way, I haven't forgotten to update you on my search of a companion for future travels. Met somebody yesterday evening and will meet three more persons in the next few days. Will do a post on this shortly. Promised.
