I will survive
a pack came from Australia…
Life moves in mysterious ways.
Our LJ buddy Icemanhank Davids daughter was going to Denmark on business working with a Danish design company, so we agreed she would pass my shop for a quick hello since we have many interests in common.
Life never acts just as planned and she never got the time to pass the shop, when she was here in Copenhagen…
Never the less David had put present in her suitcase for me and this present then traveled back home to Australia.
But back in Australia the present got on a travel of it’s own, it was send back to Copenhagen by mail this time.
Hmmmm, that’s not normal, a present that can take care of it self like that, but perhaps it was meant to be so…
Here we are in Copenhagen, the post woman arrives in the street.
The pack open on the work bench.
Yes it was a book.
Not just a book.
A survival book.
Australian Bushcraft, a guide to survival and camping, by Richard Graves.
So yes there were a reason why this book could travel on it’s own – it had the skills. ;-)
As I still have a big inner child in me and love nature, small hikes and nights out with my hammock, this is a gift that brings a big smile here, I will look forward to trying out some of the shelter building techniques and other wonderful ideas this book is so full of, I love it, it is a real back to basic book, no USB and solar cells here.
Here pictures from one of my wonderful tours out in nature with the kayak and hammock.
Thank you David for thinking of me, it is a dear personal gift to me and thank you Melinda for taking the time and trouble to bring it half way around the globe and back to send it off on it’s own.
This book sure has a story now.
A big warm smile here from me to you and the families.
