Letters to Vancouver: Arriving in Germany

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The following has been adapted from actual correspondences I arrived on the 14th, flying from Hamburg to Stuttgart.

Weathering the Canada Line Storm

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Upon first inspection this looked like a booth that promoted some lovely soy candles, but it was actually more than that. The soy candles, that come in many delicious flavours like oatmeal (that made Keira smell like cookies), cucumber melon, root beer, peaches, tangerine pina colada, and strawberry banana also serve as a skin moisturizer.
