A to Z Challenge: Theme Reveal

I don't know what happened. What was I thinking? I had read about it, and I had said to myself: nah, don't think so this year, this will be too busy, I won't keep up, I'll loose quality, I don't have ideas... 

Then I discovered that one by one of my fellow blogger friends signed up. They were in on The ultimate blogger challenge 2014. Write 26 posts on 26 days in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. Woah, that's a lot of blogging... Nah - still not convinced. 

But then I discovered the explosion of amazing challenge themes at Theme Revelations at Vidyas blogfest!

I was sold. Some intriguing themes are coming up. I could also feel the excitement building up in the blogsphere, and I knew right then... I couldn't miss this party, could I? 

And when this walking-down-memory-lane-song - just came to my mind and got stuck there - I knew it. I had my theme for the challenge. 


And that is why - in April, through the A-Z challenge, expatliv will go traveling. My theme will be Dream Destinations. It can be places I have been to and loved by all my hearth, places I am dreaming of going to, places all around the world, in my city, in my street or simply places that exist in my mind only. And isn't it so, as said in the song: you might travel all over the world, but have you ever been to you

Ha ha. This will be interesting. May the force be with us. Countdown has started. 1 April we take off to our first destination. ( I am number 1468:-) ) Stay tuned:-)
