...travel is never enough...

Switzerland




Hi! Labas! Hej! Hola! Priviet! Hallo! Bonjour! Aloha!



Just came back from Malta! I'm full of wonderful memories and already missing the sun. :)

UPDATED January 18


I haven't logged on VT very often lately, as I was busy with my real life lately instead of a virtual one:) I moved to London. Flying LT-UK and UK-LT was very common for me last year. And these have been my main trips in 2007. I've also seen Margate (again), Maidstone, Greenhithe (again) and beautiful Rochester (again and again and again), Hastings, Camber, Dungeness in the UK.

In August we had a wonderful trip via southern England shores: Fortuneswell, Weymouth, Swanage and Bournemouth. And had a short trip to Canterbury. It was an amazing long weekend for celebrating our 1st Wedding Anniversary. :)
New pages will be build soon.

...and I believe that every place is beautiful in its own way...



I'm sitting at the wheel
I got a green light
Not afraid of nothin' cuz heart and soul
I'm built for life
So let the engine roar
Push the pedal down
I want the white lines on the highway
To lead me out of town
I'm rolling on and on and on
Who knows where I'm goin'?
Life is an open road - it's the best story never told
It's an endless sky - it's the deepest sea
Life is an open road to me
Life is an open road to me
I got headlights to guide me thru the night
I got the window down and the radio playing
It makes me feel alive
