I'm Sick

I'm not good at being sick because I hate being stuck in bed with nothing to do.

So I've been spending most of my time exploring different countries with google maps on my iPad.
I saw a horse carriage in Rome,
funny cat statues in Amsterdam,
the Eiffel Tower in Paris,

the fake Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas,
a horse visiting some guy in Ireland,
and I even found the North Pole!
The street lamps there are decorated like candy canes,
and I found a street called Santa Claus Lane.

I may be sick and stuck in bed but that won't stop me from traveling around the world!

what a wonderful idea!!! You should stop by Copenhagen on your trip around the world. I'll wave at you from my window & maybe I'll blow up a heartshaped balloon & send it your way - just to put smile on your face! Thanks once again for making me smile!

Hihi, cool idea!

Love,

Skutti said...

Santa Claus leave in Finland! :( Believe me.

Anne said...

Get well soon Katie! (oh that's funny: the word verification code is dingest, which is actually a word in Dutch (kinda), it's hard to translate, because it can be used in all kinds of ways, we use it when we can't find the right word. It could be 'thingy' or 'what's his name' or it could be a location or.. well pretty much anything.) Isn't that awesome? Not only can you travel while sick, you can also learn useful words in other languages! :)

Brittany said...

I've been to North Pole, Alaska! They have Santaland. Oh, yeah!!!

peewee said...

The commenter who said you should be president? SO RIGHT!!!!!

sophielise said...

I just travelled to Amsterdam and missed the bunnies :(...Thank God you were here to find them for me ;))
Get well soon Katie...With all the good vibes we're all sending your way it shouldn't be too hard :D

sea said...

Santa lives in Finland, at Korvatunturi. Google map doesn't go there and we all probably know why. ;) You can visit Santa at Arctic Circle near Rovaniemi.

Katie...

you are the most amazing person in the world.

Amy said...

Very fun!! Makes me want to be at home, sick in bed. LOL!!
You should check out a town close to me. Santa Claus, IN. There is an amusement park there called Holiday World. Largest wooden roller coaster in the world. Food for thought!!!

Tara said...

Wow, so funny! I live in North Pole and play at that park all the time with my kids in the Summer.

Barbara said...

I just moved to Boston, but I used to live right by North Pole! I worked with the Girl Scouts there, and it's the town where all the letters to Santa go. Sent my friends from other places lots of letters just for the special postal stamp.

Your blog always brightens my day and give great inspiration!
