Greetings from Afar – Summary

1 month, 48 cities, 25 countries, 5 continents, 47 participants. It’s been a blast! When I started this project I was hoping to come up with 5-10 posts, some personal photographs of holidays all around, creating a festive atmosphere for those reading the blog, catching up with my friends. It all escalated pretty quickly and I am very happy about it!

I would like to thank all who took part in this project and sent me their Greetings! Spending some of your time during the busy holiday period is not something to be taken for granted :)

It was great reconnecting to those of you who I don’t keep in touch with on a daily basis. In our busy lives we often lose contact with people we know, especially if they live far away. Makes me grateful once again for the joys of internet!

I was really surprised by getting photos from people who I didn’t even know before – friends of family or a friend of a friend. Receiving photos from somebody I was never in touch with before was all the more heartwarming.

Some of the entries were submitted by photographers, who really made an effort to show their vision of a holiday season. Check out their portfolios via the links at the end of the post.

A number of fellow bloggers submitted their entries – thank you for that! I am enjoying reading your blogs and it was a pleasure posting your photos. You can find blog addresses at the end as well.

So what’s next? Well, in January I’ve got a post about our trip to Brno coming up and another Eating Out in Pardubice review. I’ve also signed up to Blogging 101 Course running this month – after all, I am a newbie, having started last November :) And, of course, there’s another TrailingSpouseStories entry coming out on the 3rd Monday of the month.

I’ve also got an idea for an expat/local tips project, so if any of you (doesn’t matter where you live) would be interested – let me know ;)
