Seoulmates’ 2nd Day of Giving: Habitat for Humanity

Today is the 2nd day of Christmas.  I unfortunetly live in an apartment and have no where to plant my Pear tree, my true love gave me, yesterday. So, I think I will plant it in front of a home I help build with Habitat for Humanity! This amazing charity helps build homes for low income families or those families who have lost their home do to natural disasters.

ELSEwHERE

A visual artist by profession and a sightseer at heart, I spent a year as a commercial photographer before letting my urge to Travel ELSEwHERE take over. After receiving a job offer that lead me to a sleepy town high in the Tuscan mountains, my travel adventure began. Since that time my travels have lead me to visit over 60 countries, marry a fellow globetrotter, move intercontinentally seven times and to create temporary homes in four continents!
