We try to be mindful of just how fortunate we are. Living in Barcelona has provided us with many opportunities for travel within Europe but our most recent travel experience unfolded right in our own living room.
On Friday night we invited four friends to join us at our piso (apartment). In addition to cava and the most amazing chocolate cake I have had in a long time, our guests brought their vacation photographs on pen drives… and from their facebook albums… and their Kodak galleries. In the span of just three hours, we visited nine countries on five continents: Colombia; San Francisco, USA; Vietnam; Budapest, Hungary; Vienna, Austria; Krakow and Warsaw in Poland; Manchester, U.K.; Ottawa, Canada; Sardinia and Florence, Italy.
Using a lap top and an LCD projector, we projected the images onto a big white wall. We converted the living room into a little home theatre by simply turning one of our couches around to face the wall. We then took turns showing… and telling.
Thanks to our friends Jay and Jenny for this great and easy party idea. You can definitely try this one at home!
