My name is Monica, I’m 58 years old and I live in south-west Sweden. Since the year 2000 I've had to adjust to living with some chronic pain problems. From 2009 onwards, blogging has sort of come to be both my main "job" and an alternative way of travelling and making friends around the world. In the so-called "real" life I rarely leave my home town, and my challenge in photography, as well as in writing and life as a whole, is to try and keep on finding new angles in spite of not "really" going anywhere. However... Who gets to decide what's "real" or not?!
My signature I borrowed from the ship in one of the seven Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. The goal in The Voyage of the DawnTreader is to explore "the unknown Eastern Seas Beyond the Lone Islands". When I first ventured out into the Blog World, that's how I felt. And in some ways, that's still how I feel!
