Q&A

I don’t know how to respond to comments on the mobile app so ill just copypasta the text lol.

alma70 said: How many countries have you been traveling through now? Any Favorites?

Well, I’ve travelled through parts of:
Japan, China, Nepal, India, Turkey, Spain, Morocco, France, Italy (Rome only heh), Thailand and Cambodia (haven’t been there yet, taking the bus the day after tomorrow!)

As for favourite places I’d have to say that the top 3 were Japan, India and hmmm… Spain.

Anyone can do it! It is a lot of hard work and can sometimes be extremely stressful but the sights, sounds, smells and everything else make it all worth it!

We do all our booking on the road and its really easy, now more than ever with things like online booking for flights, hostels etc. Tripadvisor makes looking for good cheap food so easy, but of course there’s something to be said for just walking around and taking a chance :)

Seriously, travel.
Stick to developing countries and your money will go further than you can imagine. Europe is just so expensive, and to be honest, its not going anywhere or changing in the near future, whereas India, southeast Asia and even parts of South America are changing at such a rate that they will lose a lot of what makes them special (thats not to say tourists are “ruining” these places, but things are definitely changing, and fast).

Part of me is sad that I waited so long to travel, but on the other hand, being a little older than a lot of backpackers, I think I can better appreciate what’s going on without the inevitable hangover that comes with a lot of partying when you’re 20 and in a wonderful new place hehe.

Anyway, yeah! Travel! It’s great!

Lol whoops. Sorry, I posted those pics to the wrong tumblr! :D

Thailand is pretty cool! Here are a few shots from the temples of Bangkok and Chiang Mai

Not sure if I still have any followers left but hello to those who’ve stuck around! ❤

I am currently in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and have just a few days over 3 weeks before I head back home to New Zealand! Didn’t quite make it to 6 months since we have all but run out of money (hence Thailand, lol), but we figure a couple weeks shy of 6 months is good enough. We managed to see parts of Japan, China, Nepal, India, Morocco, Turkey, Spain, Italy, France, Thailand and Cambodia. A pretty good chunk if you ask me!

I thoroughly recommend getting out and seeing the world as soon as you can, it is truely an amazing place!

I am looking forward to seeing our families & friends, catching up on a loooot of tv/movies and cracking into Sims again! Got a buttload of photos to sort through to as you can imagine - a very daunting task!

Talk soon, friends :)

Being on holiday gives me so many ideas for worlds it pains me that I’m still like 4 months away from CAW *angst*

Actually, I can hardly believe I’ve been away 2 months already… I thought you might be interested in a few shots from India, which has proven to be a truly unforgettable place :)

I am on a beach in Goa, India and finally have a chance to catch up on tumblr. 
There is too much to catch up on :(

Hi! I'm thinking you get asked this probably constantly now, and if this is just another nag, i apologize! wah! But with university and island paradise being out, do you think that you will in the upcoming future update St. Claire for them? :) I don't want to sound naggy, but out of curiosity's sake I'd love to know. I love all your work, by the way. Thanks for all the downloads :D

Hi there :) No need to apologise! It’s a good question. 
Unfortunately the answer probably isn’t what you want to hear, lol. I don’t think I am going to be able to update St Claire for any new EP’s for a couple of reasons - mainly due to it already being quite built up and my shitbag of a laptop can’t really take it anymore. The other reason is that I am going to be leaving for a long holiday at the end of November, and even if I had enough time to make the changes people want, I wouldn’t be around for 6 months if people had problems that needed addressing.

After I come back from my holiday, I’ll buy a new laptop but I still don’t think there’ll be any new updates to St Claire, I am moving on from it I think :) It’s still a super fun world to play, with plenty of room for additions, so anyone is welcome to make those additions for their own game! I am working on a Mexico’ish world (very slowly - won’t be done before I leave before anyone asks, haha!), so thats possibly something to look forward to :)

Thanks for asking! 

Checklist:

Flights to Tokyo on Nov 28th: check

First weeks accomodation in Tokyo: check

Holy shit this thing is really happening! I am officially going on holiday for at least one week! haha :D

I should start a trip/personal tumblr. *eeeeeeeeep!*

I said there’d be other things so other things you shall have!

This set is made up of a pretty kickass sofa set (ok I know I do a lot of button back/tufted sofas but I just *really* like them okay) made up of a 3 seater, a loveseat and an armchair; a modern looking sideboard table thing, which is gracefully topped with some goooorgeous lamps (which I’d desperately love for my house IRL). I didn’t have any big basic mirrors so I made one of those too - it’s really simple I know, but I wanted it and figured I may as well include it!

I also made a globe thingy which I kindof love. It glows blue by default, and there’s an antiquey version on the same mesh but you probably won’t want that glowing blue so just change it to flame and you’ll be good as gold :)

I think that’s everything? Sofas, mirror, sideboard, globe, lamp… Yeah I think that’s it :) A small set I know, but at least it’s something! I’m unfortunately a very busy girl lately and haven’t had a lot of time for simming and I’m a bit CAW’ed out right now!
