Book release!

Book release! So happy to share this labour of love at last! Thank you all for helping me celebrate last night at Äppelvikens Bokhandel! I’m thrilled to bits, touched and overwhelmed at the respons Home Life Around the World has received! Here are some snapshots from the evening. Showing my world tour that was the foundation for the book. I enjoyed sharing the thought behind my book.

This would be a lovely house warming present. Soon to be featured. Photocredit: Thank you friends & family!

Every step of the way has involved exploring unknown paths and at times the learning curve has been steep. But with diligence, single minded focus and sheer stubbornness I got there at the end and result is so rewarding. What started at the end of 2014 as merely an idea, to explore what a home really means to people, actually involved selling my own home to realise funds to make the project feasible. Then followed a period of thorough research and the first tentative outreach to persons previously unknown, living on every continent.
