Vad behöver Du veta om mig? Inte mycket egentligen. Det mesta kommer att visa sig om du läser min blogg ibland… Redan nu vet du säkert vilka mina största intressen är, och att jag är kvinna. Kanske är jag buddhist. Jag undviker fortfarande att trampa på myrorna.
Jag besitter en del livserfarenhet eftersom jag redan levt drygt halva mitt liv – förutsatt att jag kommer att uppnå medellivslängd. En stor del av livet har ägnats åt resor, och erfarenheter från mina långväga äventyr kommer att synas tydligare efterhand.
Så, om du känner att vi har en del gemensamt, eller uppskattar och vill ta del av mina tankar och klurigheter, eller rent av bara är nyfiken – välkommen in!
What do you need to know about me? Not much, really. The most essential things will be clarified if you read my blog now and then… I guess you already know my favourite interests and that I am a woman. Maybe I´m a buddhist. I still avoid treading on ants.
I have some experience of life as I have already been here for the first half of it – provided I will have an average length of life. A great deal of it, so far, has been dedicated to travelling, and travel experiences will be quite apparent in many of my posts.
So, if you feel we have something in common, or if you simply appreciate my writings and pictures, my thoughts and peculiarities – or if you should be just curious… Welcome to my blog!

I came over from Franks blog to say hi, love your pictures and am following along now.
Went to you as well, Fraggle (or what do I call you?), loved what I saw and is now following.
Fraggle is fine, nice to meet you!
Thank you – the same!

I just discoverd your blog and was touched by the beautiful pictures. No doubt that the content is wort reading. For this reason I would like to follow you in the future.
Happy Holydays and all the best for 2021.
With kind regards,
Rudi (Belgium) – I hope Engish is not a problem for you 🙂
Thank you for visiting, Rudy. And for the follow! I will visit you too – nature is my home. Sending you wishes for a Better New Year.
What caught my eye first was your name. My name is Christine Ann! Beautiful photos on your posts.
Thank you, Christine! At least yours is divided – mine has always meant trouble when filling in forms…
Ok, I have to ask…when is your birthday? I met a Christine years ago who I worked with and we had the same name and birthday! She was older than me but how strange is that.
When is yours? October 2.
So close! I’m November 2nd!!!!
Pingback: I am Back… – My Camera & I
Love your style in writing and your photos, simple and effective 🙂
Thank you for so much praise – you have made me happy and grateful.
Now I see why we like so many of the same things. I too avoid hurting anything, life is precious, yet human beings waste so much of it. I am 52 and hoping I am not too far past the half way mark. The path form here will be different, that is what excites me the most.
I am glad we enjoy and appreciate many things alike – so glad to have found a new, warm blog friend. You have so much good to come to you, I think. I am ten years older than you, but hope to have some more years in this (still) beautiful world.
I hope so too.

I’m emailing you today because we just updated our article on caring for Moth Orchids.
While researching the article, I noticed you linked to:
in your post here:
Moth Orchids (Phalaenopsis) are often the first experience an aspiring orchid grower may have with orchid care. This native of southeast Asia is one of the most beautiful, and long-blooming orchids available for homeowners.
Review the article at:
Might make a great addition and resource to your page?
All The Best,
Thank you for the tip! I will most certainly have a look into it.

Inspiring blog! Cheers!
Thank you – I will pay you a visit!
I agree with sidran skriver! It is unusual that your surname is the name of an orchid genus. If you do grow or love orchids rather than just wearing one of its genera as your surname, then one of my other websites at https://queenslandorchid.wordpress.com will be of great excitement to you!
Thank you for commenting. Well, the combo of names are of course not my real names. Lagotto is my favorite dog breed and cattleya my favorite orchid. I grow orchids in my house as well. Thank you for the tip!
Ann-Christine, nu tänker jag allt vara med här! Jag läser mest hästbloggar, men det här är ju något helt annat.
Definitely enjoy your style and look forward to reading more!
Så glad jag blir! Jag kanske får lägga in lite fler hästar också😉
Tycker jag låter bra såklart haha…
Bor ni alltså i Californien? Rötter i Sverige?
Ja! Jag kommer från Göteborg, men bor i Cali sedan många år .
Nu hittade jag ditt svar – i skräpposten!
Typiskt haha. Kanske det var alla stavfel.. 🙂
we have an honour to invite to participate in first ETERNAMENTA AWARDS ‘Most Talented Reader’.
More detailed information is here: https://eternamenta.wordpress.com/2016/11/14/eternamenta-blog-awards/
Thank you very much, Maria! I do not do awards – but feel very honoured!
Your blog is nice with beautiful pictures. I will follow you.
Thank you so much!
as well it should be noticed that you are a stunning woman. Keep it on! Good luck and inspiration!
Thank you for dropping by my blog 🙂 Am guessing your tag line is inspired by Blake! My masters is in Literature and ‘Auguries of innocence’ is one of my fav. Happy to follow you!
Thank you so much! And yes, of course it is Blake. Love the poets from the British Isles.
We sure do have a few things in common then, apart from photography 🙂
We do 😀
Our paths must have crossed many times but I don’t think I have been here before. Your blog is very beautiful. 🙂
Thank you! I know I have been told about walks you do – and write about – so I will have to find out!
Hi Ann-Christine. I’d like to email you about a collaborative post idea for my Pilot Fish Trailblazer series. I hope you’re interested! If you are, can you give me your email address? Mine is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much! I hope you’re interested! Here’s a link to the articles to give you an idea of what they’re about: http://pilotfishblog.com/category/pilot-fish-trailblazer-awards/
Hi Patti! I’m just thrilled by this idea and naturally I’m interested! email@example.com
So, I’ll be hearing from you then!
Wonderful! I’ll send you an email.
I’m looking forward too it! If it is to be about what I think – I’m already planning…
Wonderful! I just sent off the email. I’m so excited!!

Hej Ann Christine
Thanks for dropping by my blog, and taking the time to leave a comment, appreciated 🙂
I was? How lovely! And of course I’m glad you like my blog too!
Hello there! I just want to say that you have an incredible blog, and that your content is insightful, refreshing, and apt!
Thank you very much – I’m so glad you enjoy it! I found this comment today in the rubbish bin…so sorry I seldom look there – Thank you again!
You’re quite welcome! It was my pleasure really!
Thank you for your visit Ann-Christine. You have a really nice blog going on here. I like your photo. Vi hörs 😀
Det gör vi!
Jag ser att ni gör en mycket häftiga bilder.
Jag har konstnärliga inställning till vad du gör
Thank you for visit my blog. 🙂
now there is an answer on your question : http://cubusregio.com/2015/02/20/travel-theme-energy/#jp-carousel-7850 – Its a funny thing with wordpress I just hat to search, to find you comment.
Great photographs all around! Do you prefer being addressed as Ann-Christine or Leya? 🙂
Oh dear…it really doesn’t matter! My real name is Ann-Christine, but is too long to fit into any forms I must fill in…Leya – I shortened Lagottocattleya, which was my blog name because they were my favourite things. My dogs and my orchids.
I appreciate your photos a lot….All are amazing and wonderful.
But i find difficulty in language hehe 😀
i want you to see me and check out..
so,i can be connected with you.
I have seen you on fb now – but I don’t understand the language…
well that’s Nepali language which i prefer most in facebook. Umm you can add me or shall i add you to have a little conversation and stay connected.
Hi Ann-Christine, a lovely ‘About’ page. Thank you so much for liking my photos. I look forward to exploring yours.
Thank you! You are welcome!

Now I have listened to your voice…and come a bit closer. Sometimes the Internet is a blessing.
Hi Ann.. Thank you so much for your visit to my blog as it led me to your world of photography and travelling. As you said you have fulfilled a lot of roles already and now you have taken time out for yourself to travel around. Cheers to that for you, you will be inspiration for me as I grow up too. I am very much delighted to have share the common love for travelling, hence on board with you.
Thank you for a lovely comment – and for the follow! I’m very glad to be an inspiration – I feel very humbled and grateful for that. I will visit you as much as I can!
Thank you 🙂
You are right we do have a lot in common – photography and travel being up there. Thanks for visiting my site.
Here is my link to my Virtual Blog Tour http://scrapydo.wordpress.com/2014/08/04/virtual-blog-tour/
Thank you! I have started to think about it…interesting to see yours!
Thanks, I like the idea of having time to think about it.
Sometimes Swedish is so much like English, which isn’t surprising, given that the two are related languages. I looked at behöver and your English translation and realized that behöver must be the cognate of English behoove.
Yes, I would guess that is correct. ”Need” is expressed as the Swedish noun ”behov”, which is even more like behoove.
Here is the information on Virtual Blog Tour. Yours is August 11! The Virtual Blog Tour is a relatively new project for bloggers. The rules are fairly simple:
Compose a one-time post which is posted on Monday (date will be given to you from whoever passes on the tour)
What am I working on?
How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Why do I write/create what I do?
How does your writing/creating process work?
Answer four questions about our creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires us to do what we do.
Then pass the tour on to up to four other bloggers. Get their permission first and give them rules and specific Monday they are to post.
Good day Ann-Christine, I want to invite you to go on a journey with me and others. I am going to do the post on Monday the 4th August and I want you to join the journey on Monday the 11th August. http://irisgreenwald.wordpress.com/ Iris started the journey and she invited Alletta at http://nowathome.wordpress.com/about/ who invited me! It is only in its baby shoes. Alletta invited me. There are four questions to answer with photo or what ever you want. If you accept invitation I’ll send all the information. Wew now I gave you a mouth full.
Thank you for an interesting challenge…or journey! I’m on!
Good on you and thank you for joining in the fun!
Some more info before it’s time?
I’ll send it to you today!
Hello Ann-Christine! Just tuned in to some random blogs around WordPress and found yours. Gave you a follow; hope you come and return the favor over at my place, http://www.thatssojacob.wordpress.com. Who knows, you might find something that you like! Have a great day.
Thank you for the follow, Jacob! I’ll come for a visit…!
You too – you have a great place – I’ll be back.

And only now I learn your real name . Hugs !
Hugs to you too! My name is far too long…I usually never fit in to any form or any space…In the 50’s double names were popular, so I guess I should stop blaming my mother…
Yes it’s too late to blame her : ) !!
Thanks for visiting and for your nice comments. I enjoy your blog very much. Glad to connect. Best wishes, Martin.
Compliment for your introdruction as well for your photography, which are inspiring and beautilful. Thank you for taking the time visiting my blog and for your like. We both share the love for nature, I guess. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Thank you, Ann-Christine. I am glad that you like my work. Let me still say thank you very much for the german greetings. Your german is really good.
Have a nice weekend
Leya, I have been around for the first half of life too (that’s hoping that I also live an average lifetime). It’s been interesting so far. Sometimes good; sometimes not so good…it has been quite an adventure!
An adventure it is – and hopefully we will be able to enjoy some more of it!
Thanks again for taking the time to visit my blog Leya. I’m looking forward to exchange more travel impressions 🙂 Cheers, Anja!
So do I! See you!
Thanks for following my blog Leya. I truly am so glad to have found you here on WordPress.

Hej, Ann-Christine! So happy you came by my blog today and let me follow you back to yours! I see we have some blog friends in common, so I know I’ll feel right at home here. 🙂 And I look forward to ‘traveling’ with you as you share your adventures.
You’re so welcome, Kathryn! Thank you for visiting! I will come back to you and your beautiful blog too – soon. Have a great Sunday over there!
I thought I would pop over and say a personal THANKYOU for submitting such beautiful images again to The Paperbook Collective. It has been absolutely incredible to see what you come up with each month, your photos are always incredible and it is an honour to publish them!
Thanks for your ongoing support of the magazine, I hope to see more of your photography in 2014!

Hello hello! Well, because I really like your blog I’m sending you a little award 😀 http://globetrottersara.wordpress.com/2013/04/06/more-awards/
Well, what can I say? I humbly thank you for thinking of me for this award! I’m flattered and very happy and grateful! This is difficult for me to deal with, though. I believe it is for everyone who is awarded…as you say it takes a certain amount of time to do it properly. I am afraid I don’t have that time – I’m having trouble with just keeping up my reading and sending entries… So, I bow and thank you, sweet Sara, for thinking me worthy of this! I just hope I’m not disappointing you too much in my failure of living up to it.
No worries! You get the award anyway, even if you don’t go through the process. It’s a new rule I have just invented 😉 Really, don’t worry and thank you for your kind words! 😀
New inventions are greatly appreciated! Thank you again!
I love the freshness and deceptive simplicity of your work.
What a sensitive comment . it makes me happy. Take care you too, and once again – good luck with your work!
ciao! luvFAB blog
Thank you for visiting…nice language!
i there, can’t speak yout mother language..
but i surely know you’ve got such a great phothograph…
nice to know you then….
Thank you for stopping by!
Of course I had to pass this award on to you:
You really know how to give Christmas presents! It almost fell down the chimney! At least it hit me heavily in my chest…as I was just standing there. Thank you very, very much! This is something I never would have expected – I’m so honoured by this, and maybe even more by your kind words about me and my blogging. Big hug to you!
You are so beautiful! And your photos are amazing, thank you so much for stopping by Island Vignettes! It’s truly appreciated!
Well…I think a beautiful mind is the most important thing to have in life. I humbly thank you for your comment – I really appreciate it!
A beautiful blogger award for a beautiful lady! Z
I’m deeply honoured that you’ve mentioned me as a candidate and that you think me worthy of this award! Thank you! I will try my best, but I believe it’s very time consuming to live up to. My students and the national tests will go on for the rest of this term. But I will try!

Why, I´m overwhelmed and I feel very honoured indeed! Thank you for nominating me! I will really try to be worthy of this. My work and my students get much of my spare time too, but I want to accept the award and I will do my very best!

Just wanted to let you know I have nominated you for the Adventurous Blogger Award. I hope this will be welcome news for you.

Thanks for stopping by!
TACK FÖR VÄLKOMNANDET ❗
inte förrän nu har jag tagit mig tid och titta på din blogg ordentligt. Du är helt otrolig! Underbara bilder som gör att lugn och tanke kommer till en. Med texter där tankar föds och göds!
Tack för senast!
Nu blev jag alldeles varm och glad. Att du tog dig tid och för så fina ord. Men sådan är du…You made my day. Hälsa familjen!
Underbar presentation av någon som jag tycker om bara jag läser det jag läser…, du skriver underbart och du har ett vackert hjärta, sånt känns helt enkelt bara!
Kära Tammy, jag tackar för så fina, så fina ord! Jag har läst din presentation av Dig hos Dig, och jag blev så starkt berörd av din berättelse att jag bara satt stilla med tårarna droppande i knät. Så fint du berättar, vilket öde du har haft och hur stark du måste vara.
Djur och natur är allt också för mig – och så mina barn förstås. Det enkla, det rena och sanna, finner du bara där. Förbehållslös kärlek och vårt rätta element. Nutidsmänniskan har avlägsnat sig så mycket från naturen, att hon inte längre förstår den – och den förstår inte henne. Vi har fått en ofattbar gåva och Du är en mästare i att synliggöra och förmedla den.
