There are many diverse and interesting museums in Iceland where I explored the unique art, history and culture. However in this beautiful land of contrasts, what struck me was the “museumless” artwork offered freely on the streets of Reykjavik. Plain walls were transformed through vibrancy, color and imaginative design… all became manifestations of the creativity and pride of the locals. The city has so much to offer to the peregrinating tourist!
The synchronistic events in life always amaze me…while getting ready to travel to India with so many restrictions on luggage, I was trying to figure out how to pack all of my camera equipment and still be able to have more than just a toothbrush?! And then an answer… the Today Show presented “b” by donna m as the best clothes suited for women who travel. 5 pieces that fit into a zip lock bag, never wrinkle and can be combined to make countless outfits!!!! The bag fits into a carry on and when luggage is lost, life can easily continue. I contacted Donna right away and she is as nice as her clothes are beautiful! I wore them all throughout India. They are so lightweight (dries easily when washed), soft (feeling as if you could live in these 24/7) and versatile. The temperature was over 100 degrees and many temples require women to wear a covering for head and arms…the clothes transformed perfectly and were so light in the heat enabling me to easily move from one camera to the next. For women who travel, “b” merits nothing less than the highest praise!
PS…From a chapter in the world is such a small place, Donna and I, during the course of our conversation, realized that we grew up 5 minutes from each other and I was able to spend an amazing day with her sister who has been living in India for over 30 years! Three weeks ago, we were total strangers. Life works in amazing ways bringing people in just at the right time!
