Inchie Russia

St Petersburg and Mosco are on our list with places we would like to visit.
One day I hope to see the famous towers of the Cathedral on the Red Square
and that is why I chose them for this inchie.

Inchie Samoa

Historically there was no writing in Polynesian culture
so the Polynesian’s used tattoo art that was full of distinctive signs
to express their identity and personality.
Tattoos would indicate status in a hierarchical society
as well as sexual maturity, genealogy and ones rank within the society.
Nearly everyone in ancient Polynesian society was tattooed.
The turtle or honu is an important creature throughout all Polynesian cultures
and has been associated with several meanings.
Turtles symbolise health, fertility, longevity in life, foundation, peace and rest.

Inchie Australia

I always thought that in Australia there would be a koala in almost every tree.
But during our stay in Australia I learned that they are not so common at all and that there are a lot of people who live there, who have never seen a koala in the wild in their entire lives.
So I feel _very_ happy and privileged that I have seen one in the wild.
That is why I chose a koala for this inchie and I used one of my own pictures.

Inchie Turkey

There’s still a lot of people who only know of Turkish Delight as the powdery white sweet
used by the White Witch to entice Edmund in The Chronicles of Narnia.
However, the confection has a long history and is one of Turkey’s most popular exports.
One of the oldest sweets in the world, going back almost 500 years,
the Turkish Delight recipe has remained almost unchanged since the day of its inception.
As the story goes, the Sultan, trying to cope with all his mistresses,
summoned his confectionary chefs and demanded the production of a unique dessert.
It was through this summon that the Turkish Delight was born.

Inchie Romania

Whenever I think of Romania, I think of  Dracula!
Count Dracula, a fictional character in the Dracula novel by Bram Stoker,
was inspired by one of the best-known figures of Romanian history,
Vlad Dracula, nicknamed Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler),
who was the ruler of Walachia at various times from 1456-1462.

Inchie Zimbabwe

I have about 1 meter of flight magazines and in one of them 
was a large article about Zimbabwe,
but there was not one picture I could use for an inchie.
So than I cut Zimbabwe out of a Map of Africa
 and printed the flag for this weeks inchie.
