It's the last week of "Postcards to Haugaard" because our designer, Kelly, is headed back to the United States after a 6 week trip in Europe. See what she has been up to during her final week abroad...
Postcards to Haugaard: #6
"Blogging from Iceland... again... :)
Well, I've been living out of a backpack for 6 weeks and have traveled to 20 cities and 10 countries. I've stayed in many different hostels, saw lots of large (and very old) buildings, and have been inspired by all the incredible art. Now I've made it back to Iceland for one more day of adventure before I head back to the grand ole U.S. of A.! It's a bittersweet moment as I'm not quite ready for this adventure to end but I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and support from family, friends, and most importantly my bosses who gave me this time to grow.
Before I left, my bosses (Linda and Jose) came up with the idea of this weekly blog post about what inspires me throughout my travels. It's been a fun and rewarding way to stay in touch with my career and my fellow employees.
Throughout this journey I've been inspired by the colorful patterns decorating buildings in Spain, the textures of the volcanic rocks covered in moss in Iceland, street art in Brighton, the beauty of the twinkling lights in Mykonos, the structured shapes the "Disney" castle created against a backdrop of the Bavarian mountains and so, so much more. The world is incredibly beautiful and this trip has opened my eyes to a lot. I can't wait to get back and see how it all inspires my creative work and where my art and package design will evolve from here.
Below are some of my favorite pictures I've taken throughout my travels, some from previous towns and a few new ones from this past week in Paris, Mykonos, Barcelona, and Iceland.
I'm coming for ya Haugaard!
