OUT OF THIS WORLD
This was a selfie I took in Tortola, the most “out of this world” place I’ve been to. It’s so quiet and calm and slow, so untouched and tropical. This was such a nice little island that they didn’t need to introduce traffic lights until 2001. Josiah’s Bay was by far our favorite, with us being the only two people on the whole beach. Needless to say we took a million selfies there. This was one of them. I had this image in my head before we even arrived on the island. I knew about this particular beach from the research I had done and I wanted this exact shot. With so many things that usually go wrong with most plans, it was amazing to actually make it happen.
I thought long and hard about what image I could use for sprinkles. See, I have NEVER had ice cream with sprinkles, and therefore never took a picture of any. I’m not really a sweet tooth kind of girl ( at least not any more), so when I have ice cream, I find that it’s already way too sweet and never opt for any toppings ( at least when it comes to American ice cream. European ice cream is much better in that sense). So after a few minutes of thinking about what could use as sprinkles photo, I remembered the awesome set we took around Christmastime with my Italian/Russian bestie, Elena, in Celebration, Orlando.
As you can see, it was warm, as it normally is in Florida, and one of the biggest traditions the town of Celebration (and Disney itself) has is pouring fake snow set to music on the main streets in November and December. You should have seen us, we danced and twirled and laughed like mad women. I have a video of that and I watch it periodically to get a load of positive emotions. Maybe when I’m feeling super confident and don’t mind our embarrassing theatrics, I’ll post it here once day- with the bad focus ( hubby CANNOT manual focus the camera in video mode- it’s a disability ), classical music and our crazy swan dance.
These shots were taken in Barbados. The left one was a self-portrait, right one taken by hubby. I think hubs was getting tired of picture taking, hence the funny face

Antiguan beaches- clear, long and wide, with perfect sand and perfect waves. Antigua is known for its 365 beaches- one for each day of the year.
Also, I’d like to mention that next week’s Selfie Saturday’s theme is BACKYARD. That simple! No need to be creative if you don’t want to be. Just show us yourself as you’d be commonly found in the backyard. It has to be a self-portrait – that’s the only rule!
