Charlotte in the Sahara Desert

Charlotte in the Sahara Desert

I was excite today to stumble upon this great offer for bloggers by the site  As of late I have been missing home a lot.  If you did not know I am a Native New Yorker who has not lived in New York, since Pre- September 11th.  I was inspired by Paulo Coelho’s book The Alchemist to live life like a hippy, give up everything and follow my dreams, so in the summer of 2001, I left  Sexy  New York City and never looked back. I took The Alchemist route to through Portugal and Spain into Morrocco planting roots in North Africa for two years.  Where I traveled through out the country, Tunisia and Sengal.  It was an amazing jounrey all the way.  Eventually deciding not to return to the states, but settling my feet in Paris for four years, now back to the grind that is London for the past year and half.
