Namaste blog family

While I realize I seem quite silent lately, my Internet connection at Hotel Berlin is garbage. I even made a video for you and everything which I spent three (yes three) hours trying to post.

Good think I’m a magickal fairy princess… my wand has gotten a lot of use over the past 700 days.
