RECYCLED GIFT WRAPPING

Image
Furoshiki gift wrapping technique is an art in Japan and 100% reusable!  I discovered Furoshiki during one of my recent visit to Japanese Town in downtown Los Angeles.    This is a creative gift wrapping alternative  and a great way to help save our planet by reducing the use of plastic or paper bags.  Here's a step-by-step video that I found from www.ohcrafts.net to show you just how easy it is to learn Furoshiki techniques!

Exploring and getting lost in Europe during Spring time was simply amazing!  You can see lush green pastures, tulips, magnolias and various flowers blossoming along the highways and roadsides. 
On the way to Mont St. Michele in Normandy.


During high tide, Mont St. Michele appears as though it's floating on water. It's a majestic church surrounded by magnificent bay. The architecture and the panoramic views were breathtaking!

I took my Braidy hobo on this trip with me. A perfect travel bag to stuff my guide books, camera, and snacks for the long hike.

Sea view from Mont St. Michele during low tide.

Next to Mont Saint Michele is the cutest beach town I have ever visited called St. Malo.  This town was filled with tourists and locals digging for mussels during low tide season. 

The "massive swimming pool" in St. Malo.  It's incredible to witness the rising tides.


Next stop was Belgium. The land of the famous comic book character called "Tin Tin".
