*Remember this?

So funny! I got an email from Lulu.com tonight informing me that 365 (not to mention my viscom portfolio) are now for sale on Amazon.com:

three-sixty-five :: a photographic chronology

365

pages2

pages3

When they put the book on Amazon, however, they included a HUGE $40 mark-up, making the book cost $90.22!  I don’t know who they think would ever pay that for the book, but it’s still kind of crazy that you can buy it on Amazon!

*Plinky Prompt 1: “What do you have to have with you when you travel?”

iPod
I can’t fly without it! Good music can get you through a lot of hours on/in a train, plane, or automobile.

Sudoku book
See above, replace [good music] with [sodoku].

Digital Camera
The world is full of beautiful and interesting thing; capturing them on a camera gives you a) inexpensive souvenirs, b) another way of looking at and experiencing the things around you, c) an easy way to share your trip with others.

Burt’s Bees (preferably pomegranate) lip balm
If I leave home without it, I’ll have to buy another at the first store I can find it in!

Notebook
1) To record experiences and write about what you see.
2) There’s no better time to reflect on life than when you’re traveling somewhere new!
3) To get names/emails of the people you meet while traveling. I’ve made friends/contacts with people from Australia, Wales, England, and Scotland while traveling- it’s fun to keep up with them on facebook after sharing a train compartment or hanging out in a foreign city together!

*I’d love to hear your answer to this too!  To share, click on comment and type your response.  Additionally, to make things more interesting, share where you are/where you’re from, if you don’t mind!

*Plinky Prompts.

Plinky is a website that provides “blogging” prompts for people who have run out of things to write about (or didn’t have much to say in the first place).  As a language teacher, it’s also a great place to get ideas for journal topics and conversation starters.

You write your answer on Plinky, and other people on the site can read your answers.  You can also link your response to another site such as facebook or a blog.  I recently joined and I’m planning to answer when I have time.

I’ll link my answer here, and I was thinking it could be fun for you to respond with your answer to the question by posting a comment… try it out and let me know what you think!
